They are talking about the new season now.
CBC celebrated it's new fall lineup on the same evening The Hour taped it's last show for season six.
"We're going into the fall 2010 season with some of the strongest, highest-rated, most celebrated shows," Kirstine Stewart, general manager of CBC Television, said.
I was at that taping to wish George a good summer and say goodbye to the old set.
The Hour is now getting ready for Season Seven
They are not only going to change the set (maybe even the studio), they are going to make changes to The Hour's format.
What those changes are they don't know yet. The Hour wants to add more online content, and be more available using new technologies. What stays on the show is the interview and the look at current issues... everything else is up for discussion. My hope is that they consult the viewers. It's our show too!
In this last taping they tried something new. They have been experimenting with live musical acts presented at the end of the show, tonight a comedian, Frank Spadone, stepped upon The Hour's stage to do a very funny stand up routine. Be sure to tune in, or watch online... let them know how you liked it.
There will be more new content on The Hour until it's preempted by The World Cup. In August there will be more of The Hour specials.
