New tonight: The Ron James Show on CBC with Christian Potenza and Deb McGrath

Friday, December 3 at 8 p.m. (8:30 p.m. NT) on CBC-TV

In this week’s episode of The Ron James Show Canada’s favourite comedian guides us through the pros and cons of travel; attempts to convince his wife that an unexpected guest is no reason to overlook the many benefits of house swapping; and turns to a friend for help rather than face the consequences of telling his girlfriend the truth. Larry Garibaldi teaches some politicians a lesson about the environment and Lil Ronnie realizes that no matter how badly you want something, it just never pays to cheat. And in his latest Ode to the Road, Ron pays tribute to Toronto, his second home and tries to convince the rest of Canada to give The Big Smoke a chance.

Guest cast: Christian Potenza (Riverdale), Deb McGrath (Little Mosque on the Prairie).
