CTV announces Fall 2010 Premiere Dates

CTV announced today the Fall premiere dates for the season’s sure-fire new hits and returning favourites.

Premiere Week hits full swing starting Monday, Sept. 20 as CTV kicks-off its powerhouse lineup – a fresh mix of comedy, drama and reality for prime-time, along with new shows in daytime and late-night.

With seven of TV’s top 10 shows airing on CTV last season*, the most-watched programs in Canada return to the network this Fall joined by dynamic new additions: LAW & ORDER: LOS ANGELES, BLUE BLOODS, THE DEFENDERS, $#*! MY DAD SAYS, and NO ORDINARY FAMILY.

Marking the return of Must-See Thursdays beginning Thursday, Sept. 23, CTV’s lineup is anchored by THE BIG BANG THEORY and features CSI, GREY’S ANATOMY and THE MENTALIST. Also featured during the blockbuster night is SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA when it moves to Thursdays for Results Episodes beginning Sept. 23 (performance episodes move to Wednesday night beginning Sept. 22). The third season of the hit Canadian series premieres on Sunday, August 15.
