It took a while but I've also finally found the new fall schedules for a couple of independent stations that operate primarily in Southern Ontario but can also be seen in other parts of Canada.

10:00 King Kaboom (whatever that is)
10:30 Street Eats (Local program)
11:00 To Serve and Protect
12:00 AM Bikini Destinations

For me, what stands out here is the fact that "Leave It To Beaver" has been removed from the daytime lineup which, in my mind, is considered an unforgivable sin. (Damn, I wish I had RTN!)


CTS

CTS stands for Crossroads Television Systems. (Remember that now. I'm not typing it again!) It is mainly a Christian religious channel based in Burlington, Ont. which is about a 40 minute drive south of Toronto. CTS operates stations in Ontario and Alberta, where it owns studios in Calgary and Edmonton. During the afternoon, it shows reruns of classic sitcoms and dramas that they feel are suitable for family audiences. As of Sept. 1, their lineup will look like this:


6:00 AM to 3:30 PM Religious programming and talk shows

3:30 PM The Hogan Family/Saved By The Bell (after Christmas)
4:00 The Facts Of Life
4:30 Family Matters
5:00 7th Heaven (also shown at 7 pm on weekends)
6:00 Family Ties
6:30 Full House
7:00 Laverne and Shirley
7:30 Happy Days

8:00 PM to 6:00 AM More religious programming and talk shows

Overall, it's not bad but not great either. The best you can say is that there should be something for everyone's liking.


This takes care of Canadian fall schedules Part 1. I'll begin Part 2 next week.
