jPod Cancelled

This is not strictly Toronto news, especially as jPod is set in Vancouver, but I received a comment on my blog from “Kam Fong” that jPod is being cancelled, which I wanted to share with you all here. I have to say I’m really surprised at this news. I had found the show rather addictive and thought it was coming into its own.

With the dearth of Canadian programming, and with CBC launching an all-out assault in January to grab Canadian eyes for Canadian shows that employ Canadians, I would have thought they would at least give all the shows a decent time to build an audience. After all, don’t they say Seinfeld was so-so in the ratings the entire first year of its run?

Read what the actor has to say and if you want jPod back, give that phone number a ring or shoot off an e-mail to CBC. We really need an alternative to all that reality dreck and the drowning of our airwaves in foreign shows, that is, American programming.
