Monday October 15, 2012 Gord Downie
For nearly three decades, The Tragically Hip have made up the soundtrack to this country, earning their popularity the hard way, working their way out of the clubs of Kingston, Ontario to become one of this country's most-treasured bands. Their uniquely Canadian songs tell our story, but with The Hip's new album, 'Now For Plan A,' lead singer Gord Downie is digging even deeper than usual and completely re-thinking what he'd been doing as an artist. And then funnyman Seán Cullen take his place on the Three Things panel.
Tuesday October 16, 2012 Jim Treliving
He's gone from Mountie to building a billion-dollar empire with such recognizable national chains as Boston Pizza and Mr. Lube. From Virden, Manitoba to his first Boston Pizza restaurant in Penticton, B.C., Jim Treliving has been on the brink of financial ruin but his risks have paid off. He's also dishing out advice each week on 'Dragons' Den' and 'The Big Decision,' and he'll be here to talk about his new book, 'Decision: Making the Right Ones, Righting the Wrong Ones.' Plus, actor Jesse Camacho, star of the Canadian comedy series 'Less Than Kind,' joins the Three Things panel.
Wednesday October 17, 2012 Lloyd Robertson
Up until his retirement last year, Stratford, Ontario's Lloyd Robertson was a nightly fixture in many a Canadian home. First at the CBC, then at CTV, Robertson was one of the longest-serving anchors in North American television history. He calmly guided generations of Canadians through many of the biggest moments of the past half century, and, of course, he had that iconic sign-off: "And that's the kind of day it's been." Now, Robertson is sharing inside stories from the newsroom in his new memoir called, 'The Kind of Life It's Been.' Later, one of the stars of the hilarious BiteTV series, 'Comedy Bar,' Pat Thornton, joins our panelists.
Thursday October 18, 2012 George Hamilton
George Hamilton may have started out as an MGM golden boy, but he developed an amazing range as an actor, all the while enjoying the high life: dating Liz Taylor, stealing girlfriends (or, rather, "borrowing") from Sinatra, and befriending Hollywood royalty... a far cry from where he began in Blytheville, Arkansas. These days, George pays tribute to his late brother with his role in the North American tour of 'La Cage Aux Folles'. We've also got one of the members of the legendary Frantics comedy troupe, Dan Redican, on our panel.
