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 »

J.B. Dixon: At this time, we need to look to Canada's poets for inspiration. And when we think Canada, when we think poets, we all think... Trooper!

Awful

I'm told this show actually used to be good but I have never seen anything that would support that belief. I've tried watching this show and I would love nothing more than to be a huge fan of it because it is a Canadian show but it's just so bad. The jokes are so simple and nothing on this show is ever funny. It's about the same as the sketches they used to have on Comedy Inc and that show was easily the worst sketch comedy show I've ever seen in my entire life, way worse than This Hour Has 22 Minutes but still This Hour Has 22 Minutes is a very bad show. I don't miss Royal Canadian Air Farce at all but at least they had the excuse that they were old, I don't know how people less than 50 can be performing crap like this on TV without dying right in front of my eyes from the horrible shame of it all.
