New tonight: The Ron James Show on CBC

In this week’s episode of THE RON JAMES SHOW, comedian Ron James puts the subject of Money where his mouth is. Two co-workers find out the office pool lottery numbers have finally come in and hatch an elaborate plot to cut out the others; not even a brutal bear attack will get a Canadian camping in the US to pay for cross-border health care; L’il Ronnie hits a wrong note with his scary piano teacher and Ron pays tribute to The Peg, birthplace of another Canadian rebel, Louis Riel.

THE RON JAMES SHOW airs weekly on Friday nights at 8:00 p.m. (8:30 NT) on CBC-TV, culminating in a one-hour special on New Year’s Day.

Special Guests: Sheila McCarthy, Patrick McKenna, Christian Potenza.
