In TheNewTens, recent [=CanCon=] efforts have not been quite so fruitful. ''Series/DegrassiTheNextGeneration'' saw its ratings fall so far that the show had to make a ChannelHop to cable sibling [=MuchMusic=] (avoiding outright cancellation [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff thanks to its immense popularity in the lucrative American market]]); ''The Bridge'' was cancelled after a season; ''Hiccups'', ''Series/DanForMayor'', and the popular ''[[Series/SoYouThinkYouCanDance So You Think You Can Dance Canada]]'' were all cancelled in September 2011. On the flip side, CTV saw far better success with hour-long dramas such as ''Series/{{Motive}}'' and ''Series/SavingHope''.

Unfortunately, it seems as though recent [=CanCon=] efforts have not been quite so fruitful.

CTV is Canada's oldest private broadcaster, and second-oldest network behind the publicly owned Creator/{{CBC}}. It began broadcasting in 1961, nine years after the CBC, and was established for many of the same reasons that {{ITV}} was in the United Kingdom: to end the public monopoly over Canadian broadcasting and provide choice for viewers. (Throughout the history of analog transmission, most Canadians have been able to watch the [[Creator/{{ABC}} three]] (and later [[{{Fox}} four]]) [[Creator/{{NBC}} American]] [[Creator/{{CBS}} networks]] as well. Simulcasts with Canadian stations are plastered over on cable.)

"CTV" doesn't legally stand for anything, but nearly everyone [[CommonKnowledge assumes]] it to mean "Canadian Television". Many {{Station Ident}}s, by American branding firm Pittard Sullivan, have capitalized on this assumption. Today, It is owned by Bell Media, who also own Creator/{{The Comedy Network}}, [=MuchMusic=], Space, TSN, and Canadian versions of Creator/{{MTV}}, Creator/{{Discovery Channel}} (along with Creator/{{Animal Planet}} and Creator/{{Investigation Discovery}}), [[Creator/{{E}} E!]], and Creator/{{HBO}} among others.

But the CBC remained the dominant network well into TheNineties, at which point public funding began to dry up in the face of federal budget problems. At the same time, the CBC made the well-intentioned but [[TooDumbToLive boneheaded]] decision to stop simulcasting American programs (except for strip repeats of ''TheSimpsons'', for some reason). This allowed CTV (and rival network Creator/{{Global}}) to become incredibly dominant. One major homegrown success from this period was ''Series/DueSouth'', which was the first series produced for Canadian audiences to be simulcast by an ''American'' network a rare and incredibly satisfying role reversal.
