Check out the photo used to illustrate the “Canadians don’t watch Canadian TV” article on Canada.com: here and here, so it’s not just a glitch. How did they know how appropriate it was to use a House photo in a story where I’m quoted?
The real reason? Canada.com is the website for CanWest, Global’s parent. House is a Global show mentioned by both the reporter and me for kicking Canadian TV’s butt. And, oh yeah, they don’t have any Canadian dramas on right now, so their Canadian shows weren’t mentioned in the article. Way to prove you’re part of the problem, Global!
Lots of comments on the TV, Eh? post linking to the story, which also prove the “Canadian TV sucks” mindset is alive and well.
