Been reading the blogs and the consensus seems to be that CTV is being disingenuous in blaming the cancellation of Canadian Idol's 2009 season on the economy.
It's because the show is slumping, that's why it's getting the boot! Bill Brioux over at TV Feeds My Family said as much in his blog. In the Toronto Star, Joel Rubinoff point-blank blasts the show for being lousy and says that's the reason it got the boot. "Economic downturn, my butt," he said.
