'Big Bang' gets bigger in Canada

The Big Bang Theory is moving to a new day & time and entering strip syndication in Canada, the CTV network has announced. The show will move to Thursdays at 8pm ET on CTV, airing alongside hits such as Grey's Anatomy and The Mentalist. This mirrors the move CBS announced earlier in the year. Episodes of the show will be available to view online in Canada the day after they air at the CTV.ca website.

CTV also announced in a world first that The Big Bang Theory will be entering strip syndication in Canada a full year before the United States. The show will follow Canadian talk show eTalk on Monday-Wednesday & Friday at 7:30 ET on CTV. The strip kicks off Monday, September 13 when they go right back to the pilot episode of The Big Bang Theory. The show will also air on the Comedy Network from Monday, September 20, at 9:30pm ET.

CTV will mark The Big Bang Theory's new Thursday night slot with a five-episode marathon of the show on Thursday, September 16, from 7:30-10pm ET. Remember to check local listings to confirm broadcast times.
