Is George off on Thursday? I'm sure Hurricane Carter was on a few weeks ago?

I am kind of apprehensive of the Suzanne Somers interview. Even though I still like Three's Company, I think that Miss Somers will still try and promote cancer therapy alternatives and George will just agree with her.

I think the De-brief will be current even if some of the interviews this week are re-aired. Some are fresh.

Joe said...

Thursday's episode WAS just a rebroadcast of the Hurricane Carter episode. I've just noticed that next week's episodes are all repeats. Is George working on a shortened schedule. I mean he just had a week off last week? He seems to be having less episodes than last series. Is this somethingto do with The CBC budget cuts? I've noticed that last season 22 Minutes was on all season long (with the Budget cuts) and now this season, they were only on in the Fall.

How come we're getting fewer episodes this season? It's a bit off putting.

He may not be taping studio shows next week but he is working. He will be filming out of the country. It will be both for GS Tonight and for other projects he is working on.

Did they ever announce the winners of the "experience of a lifetime" contest or have they aired any clips from that contest?

Just curious, it looked like a great contest.


Barbara said...

Erin I was wondering that myself. When the crew come back from March Break I will ask 'em.

Thanks Barbara for looking into it. I thought I missed the announcement.

...maybe this means I still have a chance of winning. :)

The contest winners were announced on last nights show. Erin... I don't think I heard your name mentioned. Sorry.
