From John Doyle of the Globe and Mail:

  • Enough with the fluff: CBC is top-heavy with lightweight shows
    “Look at the CBC schedule right now and you’ll see an awful lot of reality shows, half-hour comedies and a sum total of two dramas: Being Erica (Tuesday, 9 p.m.) and The Tudors (Wednesday, 9 p.m.). That’s it. Only two one-hour dramas. Oh, there’s the pleasant family drama Heartland, but that airs on Sundays at 7 p.m., out of prime time.” Read more.
