This week’s podcast: Cup, CBC and Bitch blather

This week, CHML’s Scott Thompson wonders if no Leafs means ratings will take a hit during the Stanley Cup playoffs. Absolutely–Leafs are the biggest draw in Canadian team sports–but many fans now cheering for Pittsburgh or Philly may have already forgotten what it was like to have the Leafs in this mix.

We also talk about the CBC cuts and which shows are likely to be toast by the time the public broadcaster announces its schedule May 10. Connect with Mark Kelley has already been unplugged. I say InSecurity, Michael: Tuesdays & Thursdays and Cover Me Canada will join Being Erica and Little Mosque on the ash heap; other shows will air fewer episodes.
We also talk about the ABC’s bitchy new comedy Don’t Trust the B– in Apartment 23. It’s rude and raunchy and at least twice as funny as 2 Broke Girls and 23 times funnier than Whitney. Leads Krysten Ritter and good sport James Van Der Beek are to laff. Catch it locally Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. on City.
We also pay tribute to Mike Wallace, the uncompromising 60 Minutes spitfire who died earlier this month at 93. Would that there were a few young Mike Wallace’s around today to scare a lot of big shots.
