New Monday: Amazing Race Canada series premiere, Satisfaction, The Next Star


Satisfaction, CTV – “The Pot and the Pirate”
Wanting to keep up appearances as the young, hip couple, Jason (Luke MacFarlane) and Maggie (Leah Renee) agree to score pot for their suburbanite friends. After exhausting all routes to pot, Maggie and Jason hit the local park with hopes of finding a dealer. By the end of the night they’ve got no pot and had a close call with the cops. Luckily, a visit to Mark’s (Ryan Belleville) doctor (played by guest star Gordon Pinsent), results in a stash of medical marijuana. But can they hang on to it long enough for their suburbanite friends to come over and partake in it? This episode also features special appearances by Tommy Chong (as himself) and comedian Andy Kindler.
