Bowie sang about changes

Carlo Rota GS & Carlo


I went to a pretape today with guest Carlo Rota of Little Mosque and 24. I got to take his picture and shake his hand. He is very nice in person. He had some very interesting and amusing stories to tell. I can't say the audience turn out was large for a Sunday so getting personal time with the guest is not always possible. If you can't see The Hour taping at the regular time keep an eye out for the changes in the taping schedule to see George Stroumboulopoulos at work at odd hours. In this case Sunday morning.

The Hour has made a few changes to the set. They removed the entire section of set that held the shelves and table. They placed chairs in the empty area bringing the audience closer to the host's chair.


Those old chairs have been replaced by orange-red leather chairs that look firmer and cleaner.
New set Old Set The difference it makes A small but happy audience


The Studio's seating maximum capacity is now 110 seats. No view is obstructed by that table now. The long runway extention of the stage remains for practical reasons... the camera swings overhead in that area and would be a danger to anyone sitting below. It also brings George closer to the middle of the audience when he makes his closer... I am hoping at least they bring back the closer as a regular feature again.


Coming up on Tuesday September 11th The Hour will be broadcast at 9 PM on CBC for a one hour PrimeTime special focused on the news of the Toronto International Film Festival. I know George is very busy doing interview after interview with the Directors, Writers and Actors that are in town for this event.

Sweet! Totally enjoyed Carlo Rota in TV's La Femme Nakita, alongside Roy Dupuis. Extremely diversified actor & intelligent to boot! Looking forward to the interview.

Thanks, Barbara.
If Fall must come, at least there will be new episodes.
Love Carlo on 24 and Little Mosque...

What is THE CLOSER????

I asked George (back in the Spring) about the closer and bringing it back - his response was that it felt "forced" to have something every night so he dropped it. Now if he has something to say, he prefers just to work it into the show in other spots rather than being committed to having a closer.

Barbara said...

I still want the closer. Even if it's only once a week as a regular feature... common writers put your words where they count.

I remember Carlo Rota from a Food Network program entitled (I think) "The Great Canadian Food Show". I'm curious to watch his interview as I've always thought of him as someone with a pretty wicked sense of humour.

I am SO looking forward to the start of Season Four!
