A Coronation Street person, that is?

quote:
Cindy McKay, who works in CBC audience relations, says, "Of course people called to ask about the new start time, but I think they're just happy it's still on. We don't fool around with those people. We want to look after Coronation Street people."

Sorry, Eckler non-fans, but I got such a kick out of this article regarding the viewers' reaction to the CBC time change of Coronation Street on Sunday mornings. I had visions of Coronation Street conventions where, instead of Spock ears, people show up in hair curlers and patterned, shapeless, floral print house dresses. hee.

They tried copying Coronation Street. Remember Riverdale? Shudder.

I'm mad as hell about the timeslot change. I'm so mad, I'm not going to do anything about it! After all, I'm Canadian.

The American NBC show about the American White House. It's good, it's fictional, and the Prez is a Dem.

Well-written too.

It's a continuing saga where people talk in funny accents. Now pay attention, Arch!
