Toronto Sun entertainment columnist Bill Brioux has a great column today on the CBC.
He notes that CBC may soon lose its most popular progam -- Hockey Night in Canada -- to its archrival CTV.
Because says Brioux Canadians simply aren't watching the CBC.
"It's that so many Canadians have stopped watching CBC that the NHL almost has no alternative. After all, you wouldn't play hockey in a dark rink."
Brioux also notes that many of the CBC's other heavily hyped programs -- Hockey: A People's History, the Rene Levesque mini-series, The One -- have all been disastrous duds.
So how is the CBC reacting to all this bad news?
Like they always do: they want the government to give them more money.
I say it's time to put the CBC out of its misery: sell it.
