SAVE NETWORK TV

Schlock Week continues at the CAIRNS BLOG as I post another video from YouTube about the good old days of CTV, home of the great schlock shows of Canadian TV.

Found a video that has promos for both the Alan Hamel Show and Stars on Ice, two cheap CTV shows that aired in the late Seventies. This clip is apparently from 1980 and features promos for the two shows. Stars on Ice was actually hosted by a pre-Jeopardy Alex Trebek, believe it or not. During the time he hosted this one, he also hosted High Rollers which was on NBC.

Interesting about Alan Hamel -- he left the Alan Hamel Show around 1980 so he could manage the career of his famous sitcom-star wife. You may have heard of her -- Suzanne Somers.


And for those of you who want to know how that movie piece of schock Land of the Lost did this weekend with Will Ferrell, my movie column is up.
