TORONTO, March 12, 2013 /CNW/ - It's a dramatic one-two punch Thursdays on CTV 
as the network's new original crime drama is promoted to the most-watched 
night on television. Beginning this week, MOTIVE moves to Thursdays at 10 p.m. 
ET/PT on CTV, joining the night's stellar primetime lineup following 
fan-favourite GREY'S ANATOMY in most of the country. Averaging 1.04 million 
viewers each week and winning its previous Sunday night timeslot*, the #1 new 
Canadian series of the season with total viewers and all key demos settles 
into the former FLASHPOINT timeslot with an all-new episode this Thursday, 
March 14. 
"As Canadians continue to embrace MOTIVE, we're thrilled to offer this series 
even stronger positioning within our Thursday primetime schedule," said Phil 
King, President, CTV Programming and Sports. "With the strength of its 
ensemble cast and gripping storylines this MOTIVE is a great addition to 
Thursday night's powerhouse lineup."

On the next episode of MOTIVE, entitled "Detour" (Thursday, March 14 at 10 
p.m. ET/PT on CTV), Detectives Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Vega (Louis 
Ferreira) investigate the death of a mortgage broker who was found strangled 
in his office parking lot. Their initial examination of evidence leads them to 
a disgruntled ex-wife as well as a petty thief, but neither lead pans out. A 
composite police sketch and a stubborn refusal to follow orders leads Flynn to 
a man whose desire to make amends with his family, coupled with a lapse in 
sobriety, has led to tragic results. Guest stars include Aidan Devine (A 
History of Violence), Tammy Gillis (LESS THAN KIND), and Gemini Award-winner 
David Julian Hirsh (WEEDS). 
An encore presentation of Thursday night's episode will air Sunday, March 17 
at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, and on Monday, March 18 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV Two, 
with both episodes in simulcast on CTV Mobile. MOTIVE is also currently 
available on demand across CTV's digital platforms: CTV.ca, the CTV App, and
