They just watch American TV stations because Canadian TV cameras are made of snow and ice and they melt under the studio lights.

Welcome to Canada. Yes it smells funny, you'll get used to it.

We can pretty much tell when something's a homegrown show within about 15 seconds of it starting. Our TV is so terrible our government had to pass laws forcing TV channels to play it.

Fortunately our TV channels have the good graces to air this stuff when hardly anyone is watching.

Welcome to Canada. Yes it smells funny, you'll get used to it.

So for all practical purposes our TV is exactly like American TV, only when you get commercial breaks for guns and ammo and American flags, we get commercials about Canadian Tire and our gargantuan banks.

Even during the Superbowl, when you guys get the awesome commercials

CRTC mandates that 40% of a channel's programming has to be Canadian. it sucks. except for kids in the hall and trailer park boys, tho.

Best canuck TV is either the Lumber Network (they really ramped up the production values since the softwood export fiasco and now Fir Real! is a hoot every ep) or that channel that is nonstop montages of wild dogs running through tall grass and Natives harvesting wild rice.

Link had high spirits, but lost his bottle of gin after drinking to the pint of no return. Dis-spirited over his ale-ment and at Lagerheads, he sought brew-prints for beer.

Hockey really is serious business, and woe be to the other channels, even if the nearest big team is a joke (LIKE THE MAPLE LEAFS).

We get to watch your commercials when our Canadian channels aren't simulcasting the same program at the same time, which they always do and the cable companies are required to change the feed to the Canadian channel.

Y'all air a LOT of ads, far more than we do, for pickup trucks, boner pills, lawyers (and class action notices), degree mills, and junk food.

Seriously; your junk food is second to none. And oftentimes the Big Yank chains will advertise stuff the Canadian McDonald's or whatever will never have. And no Jack in the Box, Sonic Drive-In, or Golden Corral/Old Country Buffet up here, at all. Hell, we finally got Carl's Jr just last year and very few across the country, at that.

But we got Tim Horton's (double-teamed with Wendy's, no less), so...

There's a reason PBS stations spend their money importing British TV and not our Canuck crap.

Of course I'm sure the Brits on these forums have plenty of poo poo to sling about some of their shows.

late 90's/early 00's had a whole lot of anime because canadians did like 80% of the voice acting for that poo poo back then and that somehow makes it count as TRUE CANADIAN TELEVISION enough that it fell under retarded laws where tv stations needed a specific amount of canadian-original content

UGHHH! CBC makes me livid. They're the most pointless, boring TV channel in Canada, and yet their treated like an institution. They're taxpayer funded, because their advertising budget doesn't even come close to covering their costs. Their willful ignorance is astounding as well, as they never shut up about how beloved by canadians they are, and how canadians demand to have CBC, despite the fact that CBC viewership is behind almost everything else on the dial.

Just gently caress off and die already, CBC. No one will miss you.

it always cracks me up that the american stations here are all from rochester. i sometimes wonder if those local news shows there realize like half of Canada is tuning in too.

Global and CTV audiences dwarf the CBC audience at all times that are not during hockey night in canada (which the CBC is losing). Unless you mean original programming, which is pretty much just the news and the occasional god-awful sci-fi or cop drama on the other channels

Also in Saskatchewan I think they have a "farm channel" or something like that

e: I should be clear that the reason nobody watches the CBC is because everything they produce is awful
