Best Show on Much Music!, 4 March 2006
Author: Elwood_Cooper from London, Ontario

I absolutely love watching Video on Trial because it's so horribly truthful! This is definitely one of the best shows actually on Much Music, because it will make you laugh so hard you cry! My dream episode or if I could have these people on every episode, they would be Trevor Boris, Debra DiGiovanni, Ron Sparks and the ever sexy Fraser Young! These four are the best at making artists look like asses!

For anyone who has never seen the show before, or even heard of it, the basic concept is 5 videos are show and commented on by the jury members, who are mostly comedians, or random people, like from bands or people in the general music industry. Then they give their verdict of the video, and at the very end of the show, all the videos are sentenced. For example: Jesse McCarthy was sentenced to putting "may cause drowsiness" labels on all future records.

Truly a Canadian Show that all should watch! In fact, I sentence you to watch Video on Trial and laugh madly!
