- A Channel will become CTV Two in fall 2011. CTV and CTV Two stations will deliver local news under the CTV News brand. The CTV upfronts on June 2 promise eight new shows for CTV Two, including – and this is a line from the press bumf – “one monster acquisition to anchor the schedule.”
- Picnicface will make its debut in August 2011 on The Comedy Network, date and time to be decided.
- Todd and the Book of Pure Evil will make its Comedy Network debut Sunday, June 5. An hour-long, two-episode block will begin at 9:00 PM ET/PT.
- Upload Yours‘ second season premieres Friday, June 3 at 11:30 PM ET/PT, on The Comedy Network.
- Comedy Now! begins its 14th season Friday, July 8 at at 10:30 PM ET/PT, on The Comedy Network.
- The Comedy Network will air the 12th Annual Canadian Comedy Awards Wednesday, August 24, at 10:00 PM ET/PT.
- Yuk Yuk’s Great Canadian Laugh-Off 2011 will Breslinize itself on The Comedy Network Saturday, July 2, at 9:00 PM ET/PT.
In addition, Dan for Mayor and Hiccups will make their expected Comedy Network rounds. Times are here. I know I should mention the TCN airdates, but I feel that’s redundant.
As for CTV Two, I’m underwhelmed. I know CTV’s secondary program service couldn’t go on as A Channel, but nothing says “also-ran” like a secondary brand. It doesn’t look like A Channel will change much as CTV Two – more over-the-air coverage here, some CTV News there, a coat of paint over the original branding. I’ll be amazed if this reboot amounts to anything.
