George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight this week

This is the last week of tapings for season seven of GST. You are in luck because there are features taped but not yet aired so there will be a good number of  fresh shows continuing on all summer. Some shows will be the extended interviews of guests you may have seen in a shorter format interview including guests like Cory Hart. You can enjoy your summer then look forward to season eight going back to an hour long format this fall. I don't believe the show's name will be changing back to The Hour but you can secretly call it that if you like.
