Corus Unveils Global's New Fall Line-up

It's got pretty much all the U.S. content you'd expect and one new Canadian drama, something called "Family Law." The best known name in the cast is likely Victor Garber. The 10-episode hour long program is being shot in Vancouver and is described this way:

"Family Law follows a dysfunctional family who reluctantly work together at their father’s law firm to help other equally dysfunctional families."

I noticed their other Canadian offering, Nurses, which ran on NBC last year, has its entire new season being burned off in the summer. It starts on Global on June 21st and does not appear to be anywhere in the fall line-up.

One other interesting anomaly. They've bought the latest "FBI" incarnation that's going to be CBS' entire Tuesday night. But they're running one show out of simulcast pattern. "FBI: Most Wanted" will air at 7 PM, so they can simulcast "New Amsterdam" with NBC, interrupting ET Canada for one night a week. Also worthy of note: Their fall TV grid does not even bother to list Saturday.

I notice 3 changes; from what it is now.  NCIS and Blacklist move from 8pm to 9 pm and S.W.A.T. moves to 8 pm from 10 pm.

I guess they left out Saturday since there is often not a regular schedule of shows.  Often tends to be repeats, TV movies and a dumping ground for cancon, to make up for a lack of it during the week in prime time.

Wouldn't be surprised if the second season of Nurses was repeated in Winter/Spring 2022.  I doubt if NBC will pick it up again since the ratings were low.  However Nurses was far from the lowest NBC prime time show back in the new year, and the network has neither cancelled or renewed for season 2.  Private Eyes was renewed for another season and will likely appear in 2022 Spring as well.  This show regularly is in the top 30.  No word on the other Global original drama Departure season two which was completed before the death of Christopher Plummer.

Saturdays also have SNL running at the same time across the country on Global when the show is new/live. SNL airs at 9:30 PM in Alberta, 8:30 PM in BC when it's live, 11:35 PM local when it's not.

Global always had Blacklist at 9pm. NBC will continue to air Blacklist @ 8pm. 
NCIS not only moved from 8pm to 9, it also moved from Tuesday over to Monday. 
Global had no choice (if they wish to stick with a sim sub) as CBS chose to go with an all FBI Tuesday night lineup.

Re: Friday night sim sub issues, Global felt it was more important to keep a SWAT Team sim sub than it is to try and get a Blacklist sim sub. 
Obtaining both is indeed impossible, (same air time) so they chose one over the other.

I agree, and too many police procedurals.  Too much of anything is not good, and network TV is at the saturation point with cop shows in my opinion.  I guess like music on radio, procedurals must "score" well.  

CTV will have their upfronts tomorrow and I believe they are the last.  So far it doesn't sound like a very exciting fall line up for any of the broadcast networks.  The fall upfronts in May for the big 4 US OTA networks was a snore city- non event. The media coverage was way down from previous years.

I can say, with much certainty, I won't be any of those programs.

I agree.   Too much of a "dark" lineup of shows.  Global was always kind of like that.  Back in the 90s I remember atleast they were good with the sitcoms and stuff for the younger, but then again all networks were.  Their news broadcast I watched the other night too and it wasnt good eitheir.  Something about it and the anchors I didnt like.  Atleast with CTV they feel more local and the anchors are more friendly feeling.  Global and CBC news I stay totally away from, but thats just me.

Re: Corus Unveils Global's New Fall Line-up

So is Global going to keep airing Seal Team after CBS moves the show to Paramount +?
Or...???

Global news needs to get rid of the virtual set..... it makes the newscast less legitimate in my mind. CTV obviously has the best look and feel, and the CBC's evening news might as well be done out of the supply closet. They're trying to pull off the city news anchor "in the newsroom" approach, except the CBC's Toronto newsroom looks like a call centre. With that said.. CHCH may soon have them all beat.

Well said....actually yeah CHCH although I rarely watch that newscast, I have seen it and its the "homecooked meal" of traditional newscasts.  The way it should be.
