REPORT CARD

Of the 46 new shows that hit the Canadian airwaves between Fall 2017 and Winter 2018, Media Experts successfully predicted the fate of 81% of them. Here’s where we fell short:

Three shows we thought had a good chance of surviving (Wisdom of the Crowd, Me Myself and I, and 10 Days in the Valley) were ultimately cancelled after much back and forth discussion throughout the season.

Then there were the shows that, even though all instincts screamed “MISS,” they surprisingly avoided the chopping block (The Indian Detective and The Orville). Jury’s is still out on The Indian Detective as to whether or not it is returning to CTV or Netflix, but The Orville will return to the CITY TV schedule this fall.
