From Canada's IQ to Little House on the Prairie... it's a busy week!

First off I have to send a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to all Canadians who donated to the Canada For Haiti telethon over the weekend. As I write this, over 13.5 million dollars have been raised to help the people of Haiti! With the government matching donations dollar for dollar, the 9 organizations benefitting from the telethon will be able to do a lot of good work in the coming weeks and months as they help to rebuild Haiti.
If you haven't had the chance to donate yet, the phone lines and the website will continue to take donations until February 12th. Call 1-877-51HAITI (42484) or check out to donate. If you missed the telethon, check out the Canada For Haiti YouTube Channel. Don't forget to follow them on Twitter and Facebook.


It's a busy night for George.
On the main CBC network, tune into Test the Nation: IQ. Hosted by George and Carol McNeil, this is the second time that Canadians will be able to participate in an interactive, real-time IQ test. While Canadians can take the test from the comfort of their own homes, 6 in studio teams will also participate to win the highly coveted Test the Nation trophy. Tune into the main network at 8pm (8:30 in Newfoundland).

Don't forget that the Strombo show is on tonight as well, on CBC Radio 2. As always George will have a complex playlist of some of the best music.

As we enter the last week of January, there's a lot going on The Hour.
