I am making a novena for Miss Wonderly since I don't think she is going to like this revolting development and who can blame her?

Some of the substitutions are arguably better. For example, I would say A DAY AT THE RACES is an improvement over MIGHTY JOE YOUNG.

I was prompted to do this after a recent thread complaining, justifiably, about certain titles for which TCM is unable (or unwilling) to negotiate the Canadian licensing rights. It has gotten a lot better over the years, though. When TCM was first available in Canada (in January 2006), between 40% and 60% of the films on each month's schedule were not aired in Canada. These days, the rate of substitutions is almost always between 10% and 20%, and sometimes lower than that.
