VIDEO: 22 Minutes Turns 20

Cathy Jones thinks she might not be working hard enough, because she's having a lot of fun. After twenty six years at CBC, we disagree Cathy. A mainstay on the 22 Minutes cast, she's the only remaining member from the first season - then This Hour Has 22 Minutes - that launched in 1993.

Tonight (September 18) sees the première of 22 Minutes' twentieth season. We sat down with current cast members Mark Critch and the aforementioned Cathy Jones to talk about what they love most when making one of the best comedy shows in Canada. We also spoke to another of the creators and original stars of the show, the illustrious Rick Mercer. After 22 Minutes and Made in Canada, Rick launched Rick Mercer Report, also returning for a new season on CBC tonight.

Check out what they had to say about the show over the years:

Rick Mercer Report airs every Tuesday at 8pm (8.30 NT) on CBC Television

22 Minutes airs every Tuesday at 8.30pm (9 NT) on CBC Television
