They do show Bellator, when it's on. Like on a fight night. It's not something that gets a lot of play in reruns.

And yes, this might as well be the Bar Rescue channel. I especially like how during Bar Rescue, the commercial breaks are primarily segments from other episodes of Bar Rescue.

Cable TV at its finest, lol.

Those shows are always like that. Bar Rescue's track record looks better than Restaurant Impossible, over on Food Network: 98 of 140 Restaurants Have Closed, 3 Restaurants Have Sold, and 39 of 140 Restaurants Are Still Open with the same owners.

When you're trying to bail out a failing business in a few days (or less depending on the filming schedule), a lot of the time it'll still fail. Especially when the problem is that the owners simply don't know how to run a successful bar. You can fix decor a lot faster than you can fix that.

Lip Sync Battle is returning for a fifth season on Paramount Network. Twelve new half-hour episodes will premiere in 2019. (Source)

We all know one show they carry on the Canadian feed. :)

The Paramount Network is planning to release an edited version of Heathers, airing two episodes a night Oct. 25 to Oct. 29, showing 9 of the 10 episodes. (Source)

Zap2it showed it on the Canadian feed the first time the series was scheduled, so Paramount may have secured the Canadian rights.

What channels in Canada use a US feed? Why don't they just create their own feed/version like other US channels have like Discovery?

The only channels that I can think of that use a U.S. feed are the news networks like Fox News, CNN and HLN. The other American-owned channels like AMC, TLC, TMC, etc. have a separate Canadian feed where they substitute programming when they haven't licensed the Canadian rights.

Bell is the majority owner of Discovery Canada, with Discovery U.S. owning 20%. Other recognizable brands like Disney Canada are 100% owned by Corus, which pays a licence fee to Disney U.S. to use the name.

Bravo Canada will show the Paramount series American Woman starting Wednesday, November 7.

Sunday night’s episodes of Paramount Network’s Heathers reboot were pulled in deference to the tragic synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh that left eleven people dead. (Source)

Yellowstone renewed for Season 3.

Paramount Network has renewed Yellowstone for Season 3. I do not understand why no Canadian channel or streaming service has acquired the rights to even Season 1 of Yellowstone.

Zap2it says that the Paramount Canadian feed will show the entire first season of Yellowstone next week, beginning Sunday, June 21 at 9 PM ET. Season 2 begins June 28 - it looks like a normal run of one episode each Sunday.

Paramount U.S. will premiere season 3 on June 21, so keep your eyes open for it in Canada after season 2 is completed (if we're lucky.)

I had checked on Yellowstone a few days ago and there was nothing past the first episode of season 2. Now they've updated Zap2it and Canadians will get all of season 2 this coming week. On July 4 there will be a marathon of season 1 in the afternoon and on July 5 seasons 2 and 3 will start in the morning, so by the end of the day, Canadian will be all caught up.

To properly watch the shows, in the correct order, you have to get an Episode guide from the internet because most guides do not tell you if it's from Season 1, 2 or 3. The Shaw Direct guides seem to have most shows marked as "new". But that's a minor problem; I'm just glad we're getting Yellowstone in Canada.

If you started recording last week, everything should be in order, although they repeated a couple of episodes. Be aware that some guides have episodes 1 and 2 as 2 separate back-to-back episodes, while others treat that as a single two-hour episode, with 9 episodes in the season.

If you haven't started recording yet, the simplest thing would be to start with the marathon on July 4. Then everything will be in order. In that case, you should set your PVR for reruns, just in case.
