CTV’s mid-season schedule expands with addition of new series Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior

With the 2011 mid-season schedule already underway, CTV announced today the addition of CRIMINAL MINDS: SUSPECT BEHAVIOR on Wednesday, Feb. 16 at 10 p.m. ET.

Starring Forest Whitaker, Janeane Garofalo and CRIMINAL MINDS star Kirsten Vangsness, the highly-anticipated new drama is a spinoff of one of Canada’s highest-rated series, CRIMINAL MINDS, which ended the fall season with an average audience of 2.6 million viewers.

The backdoor pilot for CRIMINAL MINDS: SUSPECT BEHAVIOR, which aired April 7, won its 8 p.m. timeslot, garnering 2.1 million viewers out of simulcast.

Leading up to the CRIMINAL MINDS: SUSPECT BEHAVIOR’s premiere, hit new series BLUE BLOODS moves to Wednesdays for a special four-week run beginning Jan. 19 at 10 p.m. ET before settling back into its regular timeslot on Fridays at 10 p.m. ET beginning Feb. 11.

Additionally, witty new series THE DEFENDERS moves to Fridays at 8 p.m. ET beginning Feb. 4. These scheduling changes affect the previously announced premiere of Season 2 of the CTV Original Series THE LISTENER.

The series will now target this Spring for its highly-anticipated second season debut. See “schedule” below for a night-by-night listing of programming. Schedule subject to change. Visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times.
