Rick Mercer Report (HD)

Rick Mercer, Canada's number one political satirist, will return in the fall for a lucky 13th season of THE RICK MERCER REPORT. Rick's weekly helping of topical satire, funny takes on the week's top stories and Canada wide adventures have made a long running audience favourite. The 12th season of RMR was capped with the show garnering three Canadian Screen Awards including best programme and performance awards.

Season 12 took Rick all over the country as usual. His itinerary included swimming with sharks in Nova Scotia, cod-jigging in Newfoundland, and a lesson in the art of making ice cream in Ontario. In Ottawa he learned how to ring the Carillon bells in the Peace Tower and in BC he piloted a sea plane. Rick joined pal Jann Arden at a concert in Edmonton and he learned the art of making potato chips in New Brunswick. He joined Parapan Am athletes in training and spent a day with the Mayor of Calgary. In the season finale he visited the winning schools in the Mercer Report's annual Spread the Net Student Challenge. And that's just a sampling of the season's activities!

Rick will be back on the road for more cross-country exploits and challenges in the 2015-2016 season.

Returning again, is one of the most popular features in every show--- Rick's rant where he takes to graffiti backdrop alleys to expound on anything that might be on his mind. Those rants have been collected in two best-selling books.

Also back are regular segments that have made RMR a perennial hit, including the creative Photo Challenge, cheeky RMR parodies of TV commercials and political messages, and RMR's weekly target practice on newsmakers, The Front Page.

The new season of THE RICK MERCER REPORT is guaranteed once more to keep audiences delighted and laughing.
