Unbelievably "Unique" by Expat
First, the CBC announced the cancellation of the most quintessential example of Canadian children's programming, Mr.Dressup.
Now, the announcement has come that Peter Mansbridge's The National has been bumped from its 10pm timeslot on Tuesday nights to make way for a new American reality program entitled, The One: Making a Music Star.
"We have a mandate to provide unique content that appeals to a broad Canadian audience, and I think this is certainly consistent with that. This provides an opportunity to develop an audience for the format. And if it draws in viewers, as we anticipate it will, it will allow us an opportunity to promote other CBC offerings."
