CBC has confirmed that its talk show The Goods will not return for a third season. Hosted by Andrea Bain, Shahir Massoud, Jessi Cruickshank and Steven Sabados (who each hosted different segments, such as home design, fashion and food), The Goods premiered in fall of 2016. The series’ final episode will air on May 10. According to Numeris, the current season has drawn an average of 66,000 viewers (2+), while season one drew 62,000 (2+).

Global sets Private Eyes return date

After a year-long break, Private Eyes is finally set to return to Global this May. The 18-episode second season of the detective drama was split into two parts, with the first nine episodes airing last May. Corus Entertainment announced today that the second nine episodes of season two will begin airing May 27 at 9 p.m, kicking off its summer schedule. The one-hour drama will pick up with detectives Matt Shade and Angie Everett (played by Jason Priestley and Cindy Sampson, respectively) settling into their new relationships, while also solving crimes, of course. The broadcaster also announced that production is now underway in Toronto on the show’s third season, set to arrive in 2019.
