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 »

Quotes

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!

This show is so awful now. I give it a 2 out of 10 because of what it used to be. This used to be a very funny and also scathing and cutting look at what was going on in Canada. Now it's a series of awful, immature, poorly written and performed skits focusing on "funny" impressions and accents and stupid characters. It's like they just don't care any more. But seriously after 25 years or however long it's been why should they? They are probably even more bored with this crap than we are. The CBC needs to figure out that what they think is funny isn't what the rest of the country wants to see. The CBC executives are probably super old and into knock knock jokes or something. Who actually watches this crap if they have any choice of watching something else on TV at all? Why is our money being flushed into awful shows like this? Makes something new and good please, CBC!
