TORONTO, Aug. 7, 2018 /CNW/ - CTV announced today that it has acquired the new family comedy THE CONNERS, the spin-off of this year's hit revival ROSEANNE. Anchoring CTV's new Tuesday lineup, THE CONNERS airs at 8 p.m. ET/ 9 p.m. MT, followed by THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT at 8:30 p.m. ET/ 9:30 p.m. MT, beginning Tuesday, Oct. 16.
"We're excited to deliver this exceptional spin-off to Canadians who made an appointment with the Conners family in record numbers earlier this year," said Mike Cosentino, President, Content and Programming, Bell Media. "We're confident this timely addition to the Tuesday night lineup will once again anchor a big comedy hour on the CTV schedule."
After a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. The iconic family – Dan (John Goodman), Jackie (Laurie Metcalf), Darlene (Sara Gilbert), Becky (Lecy Gorason), and D.J. (Michael Fishman) – grapple with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging, and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, and the breakdowns, the love of a family prevails with humour and perseverance.
Tom Werner executive produces, along with Sara Gilbert, Bruce Helford, Dave Caplan, Bruce Rasmussen, and Tony Hernandez.
With this new Tuesday night CTV lineup, THE VOICE returns to CTV2, Tuesdays, at 8 p.m. ET / 9 p.m. MT, beginning Oct. 16.
