Aw congrats to the GST Team! I was happy to see The Rick Mercer Report was renewed as well!

I wish we could get a full hour of GST back! He just gets into the interview and it's time to move on that silly panel. I miss G reviewing headlines and teaching me about Canada.

Ah well. I keep watching it. ;)

They always come up with new ideas for the new season. I don't know if they will keep the panel. Ali Hassan just got a CBC Radio One gig hosting Laugh Out Loud.
