From Gayle MacDonald of the Globe and Mail:
- Little Mosque steps on the Gas: The battle of the small-town, high-stakes, big-network sitcoms just got a whole lot hotter, with two pivotal writers deciding to abandon CTV’s Corner for CBC’s Prairie
“In a bold move, CBC-TV’s fledgling — and much-hyped — new sitcom, Little Mosque on the Prairie, has lured two top writing guns from its comedic rival, CTV’s Corner Gas. Last week, Corner Gas — which has been pulling in a weekly average 1.64 million viewers since January, making it far and away the most-watched Canadian comedy on TV — lost two of its creative team’s pivotal players: show runner, Paul Mather, who oversaw the series’ day-to-day workings; and story editor Rob Sheridan, who has also worked on Showcase’s Naked Josh.”
