TORONTO (June 4, 2013) With five consecutive years of prime-time growth in the key A25-54 demographic*, the momentum at City continues with this year’s most exciting new series joining a winning lineup of returning hits. Scott Moore, President of Broadcast, Rogers Media, today unveils City’s 2013-14 fall and mid-season prime-time schedule, featuring 16 new acquired series (eight comedies, six dramas, two reality series), an unprecedented seven original series, and three blockbuster music events, including the GRAMMY® Awards.
Coming off its best year in which the network’s audience grew 6% year-over-year in A25-54**, City remains Canada’s leader in comedy with five of the top 10 comedies in the country. Nearly half (46%) of all minutes tuned for sitcoms in Canada last season were for comedies on City***.
“Our focus last year was to continue the growth of the City network and expand its footprint to reach more viewers in more homes than ever before. The result has been tremendous, with the network growing 7% this year to reach 9.6 million homes, as we deliver our world-class content on a national stage,” said Moore.
“Staying true to our younger, urban-oriented audience, we continue to build City’s world-class programming slate with the best new shows, returning proven hits, and exciting event programming that are relevant to our viewers. This year’s schedule is the strongest in network history,” added Malcolm Dunlop, Executive Vice President of Programming & Operations, Rogers Media.
Comedy is king on City this fall with five nights of unmatched comedy blocks. Joining proven ratings winners How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Modern Family, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Parks and Recreation, Raising Hope, and The Middle are seven hilarious new acquired situational comedies and an original comedy series: Mom, Dads, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Super Fun Night, The Crazy Ones, Enlisted, and Back in the Game, as well as City original Package Deal. For mid-season, new acquired comedy series Us & Them and new original animated adult comedy Mother Up! join the roster of returning comedy favourites Mike & Molly, Suburgatory, Community, and Season 2 of original comedy Seed.
Adding to its all-star prime-time lineup, which features 20 series in simulcast, the City fall schedule offers the most competitive early-evening block with the addition of back-to-back episodes of multi-award winning ratings juggernaut Modern Family in strip, weeknights from 7 to 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Dramas heat up on City this fall with the return of breakout hit series Revolution, the #3 new show in Canada last season. Joining other returning favourites Scandal, Revenge, and The Carrie Diaries are six new exciting and suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat series: Lucky 7, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, and Betrayal this fall, while Killer Women, Crisis, and Resurrection will air mid-season. New to the City fall schedule is sultry sophomore drama Nashville.
The reality and competition genre finds a home on City with a mix of fresh acquired and original series. Leading into fall, the most buzz-worthy new contest series The Million Second Quiz heads to City for two electrifying weeks of live competition from September 9 to 19. Canadians will also be able to engage online with the 24-hour series at citytv.com and play along on a customized Canadian app and website. New original reality series The Project: Guatemala, Storage Wars Canada, and Meet the Family add a dose of real-life drama to the City fall schedule alongside Season 4 of The Liquidator. The competition continues into the mid-season when Hell’s Kitchen returns joined by new adventure reality series, Quest.
Live event programming joins the City fall and mid-season schedule this year with the acquisition of two of the music industry’s most sought-after awards shows – the GRAMMY® Awards and the Country Music Association Awards (CMA Awards).

Jacob, an eight-year-old American boy, wakes up alone in a rural Chinese province with no identification and no idea of how he got there. Details begin to emerge when the boy recalls that his hometown is Arcadia, Missouri, and an immigration agent, Martin Bellamy, elects to take him there. The home he claims as his own is occupied by an elderly couple, Harold and Lucille Garland, who lost their son Jacob more than 30 years ago in a drowning accident. While they look different, young Jacob recognizes them as his parents. Lucille wants to believe the boy but Harold cannot accept it. Those closest to the family try to unravel this impossible mystery, including Sheriff Fred Garland, whose wife Barbara also drowned 30 years ago trying to save Jacob. But this boy who claims to be the deceased Jacob knows secrets about the events of his own death that no one else knows – secrets that Fred's daughter Gail will begin to investigate and discover to be true.
