Wow: Season 10 Starts On Monday
September 13, 2013

This Monday, September 16 at 7 pm, the first episode of the new season of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight hits the CBC airwaves.

The start of another year of the show is always exciting, but this one's a milestone: it's our 10th season. Way back in January 2005, the first episode of the show (then called The Hour) aired on CBC News Network (then called CBC Newsworld).

Some things have changed since then: the show's name, the network, the set, what time it's on the air. But the important things remain the same: every night, George connects Canadians to the people and ideas that matter.

Season 10 is already shaping up to be a great one: on Monday, Russell Peters is in the red chair, Ron James joins The Panel, and a few (okay, a lot) of very special guests will drop by to say congratulations.

From there, we've got an exceptional line-up of guests, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jason Jones, Ken Taylor, Colin Mochrie, Taylor Schilling, Paul Dano and Denis Villeneuve — and that's just the first week.

Here are a few of the other great people that will grace the red chair in the weeks to come: Keanu Reeves and Tiger Chen, Saoirse Ronan, Idris Elba, Isabella Rossellini, Daniel Radcliffe, Alan Cumming, Michael C. Hall.

And on Fridays, we will look back to some of the most fascinating guests from past seasons — people like June Callwood. Hillary Clinton, Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman and LeBron James.

It's going to be an excellent season. Please join us every weeknight at 7pm and 11:30pm on CBC TV to see our 10th year unfold.
