Trivia

Title is a play on This Hour Has Seven Days (1964), a controversial weekly news program on the CBC that lasted only 50 episodes and was cut by the moral elite in the government which funded the network. As "22 Minutes" is actually only a half-hour show, with the usual commercial breaks, there's only the 22 minutes in the show each week. See more »

Not Funny
23 November 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The last two or three seasons of this show have sealed the deal for me, I used to be a big fan of this show and it used to be the funniest show on Canadian television, but now it is just awful. The comedy on this show is tired and predictable. Now that Air Farce is off the air (and I am so glad that show is finally gone) CBC really needs to take a look at their other tired shows. This Hour Has 22 Minutes has just got to go, it has been on too long and it just isn't funny. It doesn't even look like the people on the show are enjoying their work any more. Really lacklustre performances and really bad writing have done this show in. CBC should also get rid of Rick Mercer's new show, it hasn't been on very long but that show just isn't funny either, it is just Rick Mercer going places and talking to people.... yawn! CBC needs to shape up and stop making comedy for just old people. It's a shame to see how far this show and Rick Mercer have fallen.
