New tonight: Call Me Fitz, Heartland, Over The Rainbow

Call Me Fitz, HBO Canada – season premiere
In the new season, after his beloved Summer Wind lounge is forced to close by City Hall, Fitz sees only one option: take over City Hall. With Larry (Ernie Grunwald) and Dot Foxley (Amy Sloan) running his campaign, Fitz is hell bent on forcing himself into office, any way he can. Before he can win the election he has to get by Melody Gray (guest star Gabrielle Miller), the city’s hardnosed on-the-street reporter and in her mind the most important journalist in news. Melody is not only determined to ruin Fitz’s political aspirations but has a long standing feud with Dot. It’s City Hall or bust on this season of Call Me Fitz.

Michelle Morgan grows up on Heartland

From Eric Volmers of the Calgary Herald:

    Michelle Morgan was at a Calgary cafe recently with her new husband when a teenager approached her with that glint of recognition in her eye. “She was a young girl, she must have been 16,” says Morgan, sitting near her trailer on the Calgary set of CBC’s Heartland on a hot day in late August. “She said ‘You look just like a girl in a show I used to watch when I was little …’” Read more.

New tonight: Over The Rainbow, Heartland, Mercer on Mansbridge

Over The Rainbow, CBC – Series premiere
Over The Rainbow will kick-off with a one-hour documentary that follows the cross-Canada audition process down to the choice of 10 potential Dorothys by the judges and Andrew Lloyd Webber himself. Followed by Performance #1, a live show, where 10 Dorothys compete, singing a mixture of Broadway and pop songs.

Heartland, CBC – Running Against the Wind
Amy is bursting to ask Ty about the engagement ring, and why he hasn’t proposed yet, but a couple of “runaways” throw everything at Heartland into turmoil.

Mansbridge One on One, CBC – Guest Rick Mercer
There’s not much he hasn’t done to get a laugh. But he’s not just funny, his humour often has a message and it can be biting. Rick Mercer begins yet another season of his television show this week, but he also has a new book celebrating his famous rants. Lots to talk about with our guest this week, Rick Mercer.
