Press Release: CTV unveiled today a powerful 2014/15 primetime schedule featuring a peerless mix of returning Top 20 hits and television’s most-promising new programs, immediately strengthening Canada’s most-watched network. Delivering the most reliable television schedule available in North America, CTV has maximized scheduling opportunities, made strategic timeslot moves, and introduced key new series on four out of seven nights and in all timeslots. In addition to its previously announced new acquisitions of nine new dramas and two new comedies, CTV also revealed today it has secured two more instant hits for its fall schedule: America’s #1 new comedy, THE MILLERS, and Sunday-night success story RESURRECTION. In total, CTV’s fall schedule features 19 hours of primetime simulcast programming weekly, more than any other Canadian network. CTV’s 2014/15 schedule – featuring six new dramas and two new comedies premiering this fall – will be presented by Phil King, President – CTV, Sports, and Entertainment Programming, at the #CTVUpfront presentation today in Toronto.
Remarked King: “Some networks program to women, others to men. We’re not the home of comedy, nor the home of drama. CTV is the home of hit television, delivering mass audiences every night of the week, in every timeslot, in every genre. It’s the result of programming diversity, scheduling balance, and staying ahead of trends, all which are represented in our new schedule.” [Read more...]
