GLOBAL Project Runway Canada
FOX America's Most Wanted: America Fights Back
BBC AMERICA Robin Hood
CBS 48 Hours Mystery

(How come I didn't hear about this before?? This is essentially The Frozen North's answer to Dancing with the Stars: pairing male hockey stars with the female half of champion figure skating pairs in an ice dancing competition featuring the likes of Claude Lemieux and Shae-Lynn Bourne, and Craig Simpson and Jamie Sale. Unreal. It's like a dream.)
FOX / GLOBAL The Cleveland Show
FOX / GLOBAL Family Guy

Battle of the Blade. Um, YES.
Hockey "stars" isn't exactly accurate. :P Several brawlers, a couple 3rd and 4th-liners, and only one legitimate star (Hall of Famer Glenn Anderson). The figure skaters ARE stars (Brasseur, Salé, Bourne, and Underhill), but the hockey players are less famous to the average population than even Aaron Carter and other D-list Dancing with the Stars contestants.
SNL was good last night, though.
You shut your mouth, Craig Simpson is a STAH.
