Typical CBC

CBC Television - Rick Mercer Report

So, CBC wound up with a rather entertaining and successful show last season before the strike/lockout/utter lack of management (or whatever you want to call it) with the show Rick Mercer's Monday Report. (Kind of like a Canadian "Daily Show with Jon Stewart" but once a week and less bleeps). It aired once a week on Monday nights. Simple enough, right? Well, I was watching the Comedy Network show "Popcultured" where I heard about the rescheduling. CBC programming gurus apparently decided that the show called "Monday Report" would now be shown on Tuesday nights. I wonder how many meetings they had to have to come up with that brilliant idea...

So now the show will be called plain old Rick Mercer's Report. Now they can shuffle the dateless show anywhere they want on the schedule, I guess. Leave it to CBC to screw around with something that works. This is the network that tried to get rid of Ron MacLean and Don Cherry on HNIC, and we all know how that turned out...
