Corner Gas: The Movie, CTV and CTV Two
Ten years after the debut of one of Canadian television’s most beloved comedy series, CORNER GAS returns to CTV and makes its super-simulcast network premiere just in time for the holidays. In the not-to-be-missed two-hour film, it’s been five years and there’s still not a lot going on 40 kilometers from nowhere. But that’s all about to change as the fine folks of Dog River, Saskatchewan face their biggest crisis ever. Brent (Brent Butt) and the gang discover that the town’s been badly mismanaged, leaving residents with little choice but to pack up and leave. As residents make one last rally to save Dog River as they know it, they discover a devious plan by a corporate giant that would change life for Dog Riverites forever. An encore presentation of CORNER GAS: THE MOVIE airs Saturday, Dec. 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CTV.
Saving Hope, CTV – “Days of Heaven”
In a must-watch cliff-hanger of SAVING HOPE, Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance), Dr. Maggie Lin (Julia Taylor Ross), and Dr. Dana Kinney (Wendy Crewson) spend the morning hearing celebrated surgeon Thor MacLeod (Currie Graham, DALLAS) talk about his near-death experience. When a fellow fan loses control and nearly dies, Alex finds herself in the hospital alongside Thor in an effort to save the man’s life. But when Thor’s connection to the patient is revealed, Alex can’t help but wonder if the doctor is truly who he appears to be. Meanwhile, Dr. Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks) avoids Thor’s “insights” and tries to bounce an idea off Dr. Shahir Hamza (Huse Madhavji) that could help solve the medical mystery of the patient’s spirit. Feeling less like himself than ever, Dr. Joel Goran (Daniel Gillies) escapes Hope Zion Hospital by immersing himself at the street clinic – only to face a day of bad news and heavy consequences. Plus, Maggie must find the courage to confront Dana on an issue involving her daughter, Molly Kinney (Eliana Jones, HEMLOCK GROVE).
