George Stroumboulopoulos and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who?).

This morning I read some hot news in the Toronto Star: George Stroumboulopoulos and his show George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight are back on the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation). This past Monday was this season's premiere. I'm sorry I missed it.

My best Alvy Singer voice: "Ten years?! It's been on for ten years?!"

CNN gave Strombo a try on their network this past summer. Ratings were anemic, at best. No word from the network as to the status of Stroumboulopoulos.

As weak as I think George is as a host, there is some hope for George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight. As stated in the Toronto Star piece by reporter Tony Wong...

"One positive addition is the hiring of Steven Kerzner (also known as Ed the Sock) as producer of comedy content for the show. Strombo was no standup comedian and it showed during his monologues."
