On set at the Hour [03 Mar 2007|03:30pm]

Last week I made my way to The Hour for a class assignment. It was very cool. The set is much smaller than I thought it would be, but very pretty. George talked to the audience during the breaks. A lot of the show was played back to us, which sucked. All the interviews that day were shot earlier and one was live via satallite. That kind of sucked. But still a very cool experience. I am a TV student, and a few of us got to explore the control room with the floor director.Which was really cool... and I am so not ready for the real world! It is terrifying thinking that one day I'll be in control of so much information. They seem like a really well oiled machine there and all seem to love it. I tried to avoid a lot of technical details that would bore all of you non-TV students out there in this very brief  synopsis of my adventure.

The One. Cancelled. Thank God/ABC/people of the world.

Reached in Los Angeles on Friday, Stroumboulopoulos was philosophical about the show's demise, blaming it on "market saturation."

"I suspect that (TV viewers) had already invested themselves in Canada in Idol," he said, adding he had no regrets about doing the show.

He also defended CBC's decision to air it.

"It was the exact right decision ... Canadians have demonstrated an awesome appetite for programs from all over the world."

The Canadian version of The One is still "in early development," said Layfield, adding that the CBC has learned from the U.S. show and will make a decision on its future in the next few weeks.

For his part, Stroumboulopoulos reiterated that he will not be hosting a Canadian version of The One because of his commitment to his own CBC current affairs program, The Hour.

Any thoughts?

So I was poking around The Hour's website...
Radio ByeBye?
Jian Ghomeshi ponders the death of radio.
runs 8:05

Paper Trails the Web
Jian Ghomeshi ponders the end of print.
runs 6:34
Jian is pretty depressing, don't you think...?

A George article [11 Jul 2006|03:56pm]

Found this today, thoughts anyone?

Stroumboulopoulos to host U.S. showCollapse )

To me, the show sounds like a cross between Big Brother and AI. I wasn't sure when George moved from Much to CBC, but I liked it. I'll probably give the show a chance.

Syndicated Feed [08 Jun 2006|12:22am]

[ mood | mellow ]

Well aren't we a lively bunch.
Just to let you all know that the top 10 video list is a syndicated feed. You can get it here and have The Hour on your friends page! Woot! You can get it here thehour_rss.

Also any thoughts on the Al Gore interview. I know so many people who don't really care about global warming. They hear it, understand it, but refuse to change their habits. So you think a documentary and a book will do much to wake people up? Discuss.

[ mood | exhausted ]


So Robert Munsch is on The Hour today.

And I'm just on commercials, and before they aired a little piece of his interview or whatever.

I didn't even recognize him...

And this makes me feel old too... -_-

After George [20 Apr 2006|05:13pm]

Well, since it is so quiet anyways, I was just wondering... Why does Claire Martin (who broadcasts weather after The Hour) always try to imitate George? I think she just looks very silly.

Justin Trudeau [26 Mar 2006|10:20pm]

Ok, so I'm pretty sure this is a long shot but I was wondering if anyone had a video of Jstin Trudeau's interview about Katimavik. I am currently in the program and myslef and my group mates would love to see it.
