CTV -- the UnCanadian Television Network

They're just about to start the Grey Cup in Calgary. But if you don't have cable or satellite, you can't get the game. It's only on TSN.
The finals of the CFL should be on the main CTV network. Since it's sweeps, they figure it's better not to piss off those who'd rather watch Desperate Housewives. Or even the Sunday night NFL game (which I think will be on TSN2).
If 1 out of 5 Canadians are denied the ability to even watch the game, then it proves that CTV is not patriotic and not Canadian.

It's about the combined ratings and revenue. Had the Grey Cup been on CTV, they would have probably gained a few extra viewers, but lost all those who wanted to watch Desperate Housewives. TSN would have had to air some second-rate sports program such as beach-volleyball or poker.
