yes, apparently da vinci's inquest has a very loyal following in the US, mostly among americans near the border who get CBC.

I also heard it's really popular in Spain. (no joke.)

Not true exactly, it's just that Much Music refused to play anything but crap, except late on Friday nights on the Wedge, which was once a daily show. (when S-YL hosted it.)

Kenny vs. Spenny is awesome. I love that show, but can't understand why the CBC doesn't give it a regular time slot. My other favourite Canadian show is sadly no longer made. The Newsroom. It was one of the funniest shows I have ever seen, with very clever, dry humour. If you haven't seen it, I know the first two seasons are out on DVD. I very much recommend.

I only saw three episodes of the last season and I laughed my ass off man! However I was told that the last season was radically different than the first two...is it true?

The last season (season 3, aired from Feb. - March 205) was only 6 episodes long. The first 5 were very similar to the first 2 seasons. The 6th episode was very different. I think Ken Finkleman (creator of show) knew it was his last episode and wanted to try something a little more artistic. So he made the episode sort of like a dream that was animation. So don't judge the whole series on that one episode.

Did anyone catch "The Next Great Prime Minister" tonight??

I thought it was only ok, and I certainly hated the winner on the show. From the first few words she uttered I wanted to smack her face in with a brick, but obviously Mulroney, Campbell, Clark and Turner loved her.

That show was only 1 episode? I thought it was a series like Canadian Idol?

Yeah and judging by who they picked I am glad. Obviously they just wanted someone to espouse their hard right neo-con values, and a platform to do it.

I heard in the papers that Maurice Richard or "The Rocket" has released TV ads in English Canada, namely during the Superbowl. Anyone can confirm that? And anyone interested in watching it in English Canada? btw it will be dubbed.

If you do want to watch it, expect a high cinematographic quality, and a superb effort with all technical aspects. But the story is mild...

I read today that CBC was cancelling Davinci City Hall, This is Wonderland and The Tournament after this season.

What? No way! Though I never watched any of those shows, it comes as a complete shock, especially with Da Vinci and Wonderland! The Tournament? Bah, as soon as I saw the CBC trying to sell The Tournament with a KIA, I knew it was over. And aparently, The Tournament's second season was shit compared to the 2nd.

Does anyone have actual ratings of these shows?

At least they know when to quit, unlike too many other shows these days.

Its real shame that CBC killed them off, but its more of a shame that these good shows were never watched by the public in the first place. Generally the rule of thumb for ratings is 500 000 nationwide, all 3 were averaging around 300 000 so its understandable as to why CBC canned them. All I can say is it isn't a very good sign for Canadian drama, especially non-teen drama, since Global only has Falcon Beach these days and CTV has Whistler but won't premiere it until this fall.

Why can't somebody just get rid of Ben Mulroney?

Please. For the love of God.

Remove Ben Mulroney From Canadian Idol: On-line Petition

http://www.petitiononline.com/idolben/petition.html

To: CTV
We believe that Ben Mulroney is not a good host for Canadian Idol. His jokes and wit lack what a good host should display. He is a poor representative for Canada, and we feel ashamed to have him on such a widely-viewed show. He is the worst part of a good show, and a show that would be far better with the absence of Ben Mulroney. We request the removal of Ben Mulroney from future Canadian Idol seasons.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned
