Johnovision was one of those shows that most teens have seen but seldom remember its existence. I was lucky enough to go to a taping of 2 episodes with some friends back in high school; during the show's final season. I even won the "Reach for the Pop" contest because it drew its contestants from the audience. The whole trip was a high light for a small town Canadian kid. Johnovision was one of those Canadian obsessions, just like the old school Degrassi episodes and Street Cents. Of course most people don't remember the time when CBC actually created original series that were aimed at Canadian youth and proved to be innovators (in particular, how cutting edge Degrassi was at the time, because it dealt with Aids, teen pregnancies, abortions, and other taboo subjects). Of most CBC programs, the one that still lingers on is Degrassi, thanks to the new incarnation and the fact that their is an American fan base.
