CTV adds Criminal Minds spinoff

The network slips in a last-minute addition to its winter schedule, bumping The Defenders to Fridays.

CTV is building on the success of investigative drama Criminal Minds with a new spinoff series, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, starring Forest Whitaker.

The last-minute addition to the winter schedule is filling the Wednesday 10 p.m. (ET) slot starting Feb. 16. It bumps The Defenders, which moves to Fridays at 8 p.m. starting Feb. 4.

In the void between, the Wednesday 10 p.m. slot will be filled with the Tom Selleck starrer Blue Bloods, which will do a four-week run in the timeslot starting Jan. 19. It will move back to Fridays at 10 p.m. on Feb. 11.

The schedule shift also affects the premiere of new CTV series The Listener, which has been moved to a spring debut.
