This thread is for Syndicated TV Shows - series that are distributed to individual U.S. stations or ownership groups and not through a network agreement. Syndicated series can be on various networks in different cities and may be available to Canadians depending on the U.S. stations they receive through their TV provider or OTA. If I mention some stations where the program is available, it's meant to be a representative sample of the more commonly available stations and not an exhaustive list.

Where the Canadian rights have been picked by a Canadian network, any news will be posted in that network's thread.
