Super Channel is still under Bankruptcy Protection, so they are on a very tight budget under the supervision of a court-appointed monitor.

They will probably continue to run the old series like Power on time since they have long-term contracts and have to make scheduled payments.

The situation is more uncertain with series like Berlin Station and Graves. They may have picked them up late, but will run season 2 on time or they just be going one season at a time and will pick up season 2 if and when they can afford it.

I thought SC was pretty good at airing shows day and date? Not months later.
My experience is that SC runs shows from several days to several weeks behind US networks. Even worse is that a lot of the shows are from standard tier cable channels in the US but sold at a premium price on SC. If they weren't on SC, we would likely see them on standard tier channels at cheaper prices or on TMN with simultaneous airings with the US network. TMN and HBO Canada usually air series simultaneously with their originating channels, SC not as often.

Super Channel added Full Circle: Miami to the list of series, but it's not scheduled for this year. AT&T's AUDIENCE Network aired the third installment of Full Circle earlier this fall.

I noticed that Tiny Plastic Men was removed from this year's schedule, but it's still on the series list.
