Once Great, Now Awful
20 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This Hour Has 22 Minutes used to be one of the best Canadian-made comedy shows on the CBC network. As a Brit expat (long long ago I declared myself Canadian first) I was proud to have such sharp political comedy on the air. Now it is the states that has good poli-comedy though, led by Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report. Royal Canadian Air Farce was terrible for years and years before CBC finally put it down and now This Hour Has 22 Minutes is suffering the same drawn-out, sad fate. If anyone had any mercy they would have pulled the plug on this show several years ago. The last three years in particular have been just awful, with recurring bad sketches, by-the-numbers performances, and some of the worst writing I've seen on Canadian TV (well, again, Royal Canadian Air Farce was walking dead for several years as well). Rick Mercer has also lost my attention completely with no reason (political or comedy) to watch him. I hope CBC wakes up and cancels these shows and replaces them with something fresh by different people, perhaps boredom after so many years on the air is responsible for these terrible shows. While they're at it they should cancel Little Mosque on the Prairie and a few other perennial losers.
