Syndication Edits post-1999

 

After it was finally cancelled, SCTV was syndicated in 185 half-hour shows; unfortunately, the Network 90 and Cinemax shows were rather unceremoniously chopped and edited to fit the 30 minute format, and quite a bit of material was dropped altogether. The syndicated versions of the first three series, originally half an hour themselves, follow the original shows pretty closely, with some odd exceptions.

SCTV Guide matches the episodes as they were originally broadcast. Well, even this is not entirely true; US versions of the original Series 1-3 varied a bit from the Canadian shows, while Series 4 and 5 aired in 60 minute (not 90) episodes on the CBC in Canada. Regardless, what's in the Guide may not match what you may have recently (after 1984) seen on TV. I've made some notes regarding these syndicated shows throughout the guide.

To further complicate matters, US and Canadian syndicated shows also differ, with the Canadian ones being 1 to 2 minutes longer. The more recent Comedy Channel and NBC run (c.1998 on) has featured syndicated shows that have been further edited for what appears to be music rights issues.

Syndication show staff announcer was Robert Corness (also the announcer for Cycle 2).

Syndication in the United States

John Hedegor

Episodes of SCTV were syndicated (or re-syndicated in the case of Series 1-3) around late 1984 (shortly after the Cinemax series ended) by a company called Blair Entertainment, I believe. These appeared on WGN in Chicago. Then, when Nick at Nite picked up SCTV in 1988, they were syndicated by Rhodes Entertainment Group (I'm not sure of the name.). This would normally make little if any difference, except that the shows were not always identical from one syndicator to the other. Some Blair episodes had the sketches in different running order from the Rhodes shows (which were often different from the original Canadian shows!), or had different sketches inserted. Some shows combined material from the syndicated and NBC versions. Some shows gave incomplete credits (one director would be credited, when some shows had more than one, depending on the sketches involved; also, performance credits were often incomplete: Robin Duke and Tony Rosato often appeared in shows credited to Catherine O'Hara and John Candy, and John Hemphill and Mary-Charlotte Wilcox appeared in many more shows than those in which they were credited). Rhodes tended to censor the episodes much more strictly. Sketches dealing with drug abuse were particular targets. One show edited part of a Floyd Robertson / Earl Camembert newscast because of some jokes about marijuana (yet they left in the newscast where Earl was high on drugs!). Also, Rhodes edited out the entire Dr. Braino sketch with Candy and Joe Flaherty and replaced it with "Dr. Tongue's 3-D House of Stewardesses!" All in all, a very messy situation (I remember for a while Rhodes shows aired on Nick at Nite while Blair shows aired at the same time on WGN!).

But wait! There's more!

Both Blair and Rhodes cut the third series episodes (CBC) very harshly. Some sketches were scattered into the NBC cut-downs, but many sketches were left out entirely, most notably the parody of the film "Gaslight", most of the Bill Needle sketches, and the McKenzie sketches in which Bob and Doug were thrown out of the SCTV studios for being disruptive and had to do The Great White North in various outdoor locations. Also, one whole show was missing: the parody of "The Cisco Kid" in which actual old film footage was used, with silly voices dubbed on the soundtrack. Evidently it was left out for legal reasons involving the old footage (or possibly because none of the cast members were in it). Out of 26 shows (actually just 25, as one was a "Best Of"), Blair and Rhodes both managed to pare them down to 21.

Rhodes and Blair ignored the Cinemax episodes completely, although I believe this was due to contract restrictions rather than misgivings over content. The Cinemax shows, however, were a bit raunchier than their predecessors, and Flaherty did indeed utter a swear word in one show ("Gaffes and Practical Amusements").

Anyhow, in 1999 a company called WIC gained the rights to SCTV. They obtained the Cinemax shows, thus expanding the number from 156 to 185. But WIC re-edited the shows yet again. Sketches from all over SCTV's history can often be found in one half-hour! Many of the sketches from the third series (like "Gaslight") were restored, but the order was shaken up even further, making the shows harder to follow chronologically.

The NBC "Later" shows were altered from the WIC shows, with more cuts for commercials and a new opening (with the "Later" logo) added on. "Later" also often obnoxiously ran only halves of shows (Part One of the CCCP1 and Stalag SCTV shows were aired, but not Part Two).

On top of that, because of the ongoing musical-rights problem, some sketches with copyrighted music have either been re-dubbed or erased (like Bill Murray singing "Mrs. Robinson") or eliminated entirely (like "Stairways to Heaven").

Again, a very messy situation. Syndicating a show like SCTV (at least, in its 90-minute form) is a risky proposition anyway, and we should at least give the syndicators points for trying. But the presentation by all three has left a very great deal to be desired.

The Blair and Rhodes shows have the same generic opening credits that the WIC shows have (with the TV sets being thrown off the balcony).

U.S. Syndication Episode Guide

The list numbers the US syndicated shows exactly as they appear on the Blair synopsis sheets handed out with the shows in the U.S. The order is essentially the Network 90 shows, shown in order interspersed with Series 3 shows (and two Series 2 shows), followed by Series 1 and 2 in order. As these are from Blair shows, Series 6 is not included. Unfortunately, the synopsis sheets don't provide complete sketch lists, just highlights. With that caveat, I could only find one discrepancy with the original Canadian syndicated shows: according to the US synopsis, Indira is included in Midnight Video Special (60A-123C), but it didn't appear in the Canadian show to my knowledge.

The US syndication package doesn't include 3-8 (Gaslight), 3-9 (Man's Ability To Imitate) or 3-22 (Gene Shalit's America), but many of the sketches from those episodes did wind up in the season 4-5 cut-downs aired on both sides of the border.

Episodes are grouped according to minor differences on the sheets: 1-20 are numbered without the 'A' designation; starting at 41A, the pages have a different letterhead; starting at 109A, the letterhead changes back and there are no credits; the letterhead changes again at 131A.

1999 Syndication Episode Edits

Compiled by Ben Douwsma

Sometime around 1999, the syndicated episodes were re-edited, presumably for the same music rights issues that have plagued the show since forever.

Comparing the season 4/5 shows against the US versions, the American shows used a shorter version of the opening credits sequence (sped-up slightly, less clips of breaking equipment between cast credits). The closing sequences would often be shorter than the Canadian shows as well). Aside from minor things like the new promos made to tease the next syndicated shows, they're pretty much identical content-wise.

002: Murder at SCTV - minor edit to remove harmonica playing My Way during Gus' speech in Wara Wara Wara
013: Ben Hur - Davy Crockett Hat Fur offer cut. Bill Needle's Mailbag 8 added
030: SCTV Solid Gold Telethon - "Just The Way You Are" segment of the medley is cut; Melba's Disco Jeans is added
031: Writer's Strike - Edith Prickley singing "Just The Way You Are" is replaced with instrumental piano music
037: SCTV 30th Anniversary - Yellowbelly theme is edited out; the title is freeze-framed as the humming portion at the end plays

039: Bad Acting In Hollywood
040: Alfred Hitchcock Presents...
041: Fighting Air Dogs
042: Death Takes No Holiday

058: Gaslight - Gordon Lightfoot Sings Every Song Ever Written edited to remove "Supercalifragilistic"
062: Hugh Betcha's Night Gallery - guitar solo at the end of "The End" by the Beatles (between Takin' Care Of Business and the last O Canada clip) removed from Bob and Doug's national anthem
063: Star Wars - audio muted during Star Wars to remove the John Williams music as well as Caballero's dialogue and the siren sound effects
064: Hollywood Salutes Its Extras - Wide World of High Voices is edited to remove the clip of "Staying Alive" and the "Needle and the Damage Done" variant that Neil Young (Rick Moranis) sings; the Star Wars music in Empires Are A Girl's Best Friend is replaced with generic music ("Toward Magic Mountain" by Demons); Quick Wash Dish Laundry (1-15) is added. Extended Second City and WIC logos at end (full animated versions)
068: Alpha Channel - bumper added
069: Midnight Express Special - "Pants" is replaced with generic music; segment is edited to muffle him from the top (same music as on DVD); bumpers added to fill time. Extended Second City and WIC logos at end (full animated versions)

144: Sammy Maudlin 23rd Anniversary - Paul Anka's song cut along with all the "My Way" based instrumentals; Totacontrol added. (It appears the CN also cut off the Raoul Wilson segment and the credits but I think it was an error on their end and not an edit to the episode)

159: Irv Goldfarb/One On the Town - Rock Concert promo (the same one from 4/1-6) has the Randy Newman, Patti Smith and Village People clips cut; Tracking The Unknown has "Macho Man" cut; bumpers added to fill time

The credits for 157, 158 and 159 don't credit Jack E. Rhodes as an executive producer with Doug Holtby and Len Stuart like the other NBC-era syndicated shows do, but he's credited in the American cuts. I remember 159 had a 1985 copyright date when the syndicated shows used the "Old Firehall" copyright screens; I wonder if the original 1984 Canadian package ended at the awards show, and then the remaining three cut-downs were added to the Canadian package with the Cinemax shows (which also had the 1985 copyrights in the older Canadian package).
