REPORT: Canadians watching less TV

Canadians, particularly the young, are watching less homegrown programming these days, according to the government's statistics agency.

Statistics Canada (Statscan) said Friday that the 2004-05 National Hockey League lockout meant Canadian adults spent 37.2% percent of their viewing time on Canadian shows in fall 2004, the last period surveyed, down from 40.2 percent in 2003.

The decline in hockey telecasts due to the NHL labor dispute translated to less Canadian content overall, with indigenous programming on over-the-air TV channels dropping to 54.1 percent in 2004, compared to a year-earlier 56.5 percent. On pay and specialty TV channels, local content fell to 36.8 percent from 44 percent.

The Statscan report also noted that Canadians aged 12 to 17 spent 12.9 hours a week in front of the television in 2004, two ...

Corner Gas is about the lives of the people who live in Dog River and hang around the only gas station and restaurant in town. The cast of characters includes Brent LeRoy, the owner of Corner Gas and chronic comicbook reader; his assistant at the station, Wanda Dollard, who is just a little too well educated to be stuck where she is, but doesn't seem to mind it; Hank Yarbo, Brent's friend from his school days whose hobbies consist of hanging out at the gas station and drinking coffee; Lacey Burrows, a big-city girl who's a little out of place in small town Saskatchewan; Brent's parents, Oscar and Emma LeRoy, who bicker all the time, but when push comes to shove, they're there for each other; and the town constabulary, Davis Quinton and Karen Pelly, who seem to get into more trouble than they stop. The show has been a favourite in Canada since its inception, and has constantly hit high marks in the ratings, making it the number one comedy in Canada. It has garnered numerous award nods and wins, including the Canadian Comedy Awards, the Directors' Guild of Canada, Writers' Guild of Canada, Gemini Awards and an Emmy nomination. Opening Theme Not A Lot Goin' On, by Craig Northey and Jesse Valenzuela You can tell me that your dog ran away And then tell me that it took three days I've heard every joke, I've heard every one you're sayin' You think there's not a lot goin' on Well, look closer, baby, you're so wrong And that's why you can stay so long Where there's not a lot goin' on. Closing Theme My Happy Place, by Craig Northey I don't know the same things you don't know I don't know, I just don't know It's a great big place Full of nothin' but space And it's my happy place I don't know Yes you do You just won't admit it I don't know the same things you don't know I don't know I just don't know.
