Default Canadian Fall 2008 TV schedules --- Part 2: Cable and specialty channels

It's been a few weeks since Part 1 so I'll try to make up for it this week. Part 2 deals with cable specialty channels which are seen across Canada and are available for free to everyone. The first channel I'll deal with is called TVTropolis. It's very difficult to explain what their schedule is like so I'll try to do this as briefly as I can.


TVTropolis


---Owned by the Canwest group, which controls Global TV, E! Canada, Lonestar, DejaView (see Part 3) and many other specialty and digital channels

---formerly known as PRIME, which existed until 2006

---programming consists mainly of sitcoms from the late 1980s until today and original series which look at TV series and stars from the past and present, such as "Whatever Happened To?", "Tube Tales", "Planet Soap", and the game show "Inside The Box".

---fall schedule looks very disoriented at first glance with each day offering a different lineup in which few series have a specific time slot where they can be seen every day at the same time. The official Fall 2008 lineup looks like this:


Mondays
6:00AM: Whatever Happened To

There you go! Seven different lineups for each day of the week. I'm not so sure I like any of them.

I'll have more info about more channels as soon as I can find them. Later today I'll have Part 3 which contains the digital channels like DejaView and TVLand Canada.

Sorry, in the other thread I asked about this without noticing this thread, as it was below.

That is the most confusing lineup I think I have ever seen.

I don't even know how to respond except for

Charmed: ew, why?
That 70s Show: nice! had a feeling this was coming...
King of Queens: seems like every channel airs it
Frasier: get rid of it, drives me crazy
Fresh Prince: only channel that doesn't obsess over this show!

Fresh Prince airs only 1 day and That 70s Show 2 days?

Whatever, this will be one of those channels that if you're looking through the guide and see something you'll watch it. Not like the channels that I know the schedule pretty well.

I guess Melrose Place didn't work out for them. I don't see why they have American Dad in there, I thought they were sticking with '90s shows.

TVtropolis is pretty much just like an addition of what Global is/used to be + a few other shows.
