CTV lands rights to 'Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'


Canada's top-rated broadcaster unveiled its fall 2013-2014 schedule this morning.

Among the network's new additions are seven rookie U.S. series, with the biggest highlight being the acquisition of the 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' series, as well as 'The Goldbergs'. They will air back to back on Tuesday nights, which have traditionally been a poor performing day for CTV. The reason for that is that Global Television airs 'NCIS' on the night and it has been a ratings dominator.

Paired with those two programs will be 'Trophy Wife' and 'Person of Interest', which aired last season on City and were among the top-ten primetime series in the Canadian ratings war.

'The Voice' will switch on Tuesday to CTV Two.

Phil King, CTV's president of programming and sports, said he was excited for S.H.I.E.L.D. to come to CTV and that it comes with a built in audience and impressive "pedigree" from Joss Whedon. 

CTV's biggest night will likely be Thursdays, where it airs; The Big Bang Theory', 'Two and a Half Men' and 'Grey's Anatomy', King added.

CTV has been the top-rated Canadian network for 13 straight seasons.

“When you’re number one, they look at us more than we look at them,” King said.
