    What's going on here? Why would CTV move LOST to A Channel?

    I know they are owned by the same company but you would think that LOST was a big show for CTV, they sure advertised it a lot and now with the move to A Channel it won't be broadcast in HD!

    Of course I'll just tape it on one of the US channels to get it in HD but what kind of business sense does this move make? :wtf:

    Criminal Minds is also a big show, and this way CTV can air both of them at the same time as their American counterparts. I don't know enough about the ratings to say why they'd choose one over the other to move to A Channel, but overall it's probably a good thing.

    On the plus side, this means that 2-hour American Idol episodes will no longer mess with Lost's scheduling. :techman:

    ^

    Actually, that's a strike against the move. Now we can't be all smug and sanctimonious because we can't see the episodes an hour earlier than the Americans any more ;)
