Question Is there a database or website that tells you who owns the syndication rights to show

I think this would come in handy particularly for shows that seem to bounce around in syndication.

Speaking of syndicated shows, here's a little tidbit that I can't seem to figure out. A hit series normally should be able to hit syndication after 4 seasons or 100 episodes (or 88 in the modern era). Yet while I was looking at my online TV guide recently, I noticed that the ABC sitcom Speechless, which is just wrapping up only its 2nd season and has only aired 40 episodes so far, is already running 5 days a week on the Canadian Family Channel at 8:30 pm. That doesn't make sense to me yet it's a tremendous bonus for Canadian fans of the series. I wouldn't be surprised if the same thing happens next season with Young Sheldon. I can handle watching it every day.
