In the news: Canadian TV explained to Americans

From John Doyle, normally of the Globe and Mail but here writing for TV Quarterly:

  • What makes Canadian TV so different?
    “Little Mosque on the Prairie made the American media curious because it has a comic premise that’s outrageous in the context of mainstream U.S. network TV — it finds comedy in the lives of a group of Muslims living in a small prairie town where many of the locals are suspicious of them.”
