Coming this Fall to the CBC...

Yesterday the CBC announced its fall-winter line up yesterday, and we are happy to announce that The Hour is among the shows returning to the CBC next fall. This will be The Hour's sixth season on the CBC.

Other shows returning to CBC this fall include: The Mercer Report, This Hour Has 22 Minutes, The Tudors, The Border, Little Mosque on the Prairie, Dragon's Den, Heartland, Coronation Street and last season's breakout hit Being Erica. Four of these seires (Little Mosque, Being Erica, 22 Minutes and The Border) will return with shorter seasons.

The CBC also announced three new shows that will premiere in the fall:

The Ron James Show, which is set up as a showcase of the famous comedians observational humour.

Super Speller: a spelling competition hosted by CBC personality Evan Solomon.

Battle of the Blades: which teams up Canadian figure skaters with Canadian hockey players in an elimination style contest.

Two more shows will debut in the winter:

18 to Life: a comedy about a couple who marries at 18.

The Republic of Doyle: a dramatic comedy following a dysfunctional father-son private investigator team set in St. John's.

Show that are not returning to the CBC in the fall season include Wild Roses, Sophie, Fashion File and The Steven and Chris Show, which is currently on indefinite hiatus. CBC also reports that there are no plans for a third edition of The Week the Women Went or new editions of Test the Nation.
The CBC says that its summer schedule will not be change at this point and that further announcements are coming.

Say what you want about The Tudors, but I love that show and am glad it's coming back for season 3!

I had no doubt The Hour would be back.
Love Being Erica and I know lots of people that love the Tudors.So good to hear.
Sorry about the Steve and Chris show.
But a spelling bee show? really? I won't bee watching that one.

I am looking forward to season three of The Tudors. It's a bummer that they are only doing four seasons of the show. I am curious where they are taking Being Erica. The spelling show cracks me up, that should be weirdly interesting.

I'm so excited that they're bringing back Being Erica - it's such a great show that crosses generations and opens up talking with one another. I was worried that the CBC wouldn't realize the gem on their hands.
