I had no idea that CTV news releases could be so… refreshing.
In a strongly worded legal directive, the CBC has accused CTV’s branding of being “confusing” to viewers with respect to their trademark for “Hockey Night In Canada.” “We take this matter very seriously,” the letter said.
Apparently, reasonable viewers could consider encore hockey broadcasts “confusing” with the widely popular comedy series about four socially awkward scientists and their friends.
So, out of deep respect for the millions of viewers that CBC has alleged are “confused”, and in the spirit of the Lady Byng trophy, CTV today pledged that it will heed the request and rebrand its Saturday night programming as BIG BANG NIGHT ON CTV.
Hopefully, the move will prevent further “reducing the esteem” of CBC’s programming.
