HAPPY CORNER GAS DAY

I can't believe it's been a year already :( Too bad there wasn't a cast reunion or whatever. They probably would do one in a couple of years, though. But with Brent and his new show, who knows.

forgot to post this. didn't realize what day it was lol!

Hiccups distribution news [Apr. 11th, 2010|02:01 am]

I suppose this is good. I wonder what network would pick it up. I doubt Comedy Central. I don't think it would fit in. (maybe TBS..i dunno) An example of this would be Ugly Americans. looks like a show that belongs on Cartoon Network instead :P

Electus Distribution has secured the international and US rights to the new Canadian television series Hiccups, which Brent Butt (Corner Gas) produces for CTV, and Ready, Set, Dance!, created by Notional execs Cleve Keller and Dave Noll in partnership with Electus.

what about Dan For Mayor? I'd want that instead, tbh.

update from Brent about Hiccups ratings [Mar. 3rd, 2010|07:20 pm]

NOW THOSE ARE SOME NUMBERS!!!
Hello everybody. As you probably know by now, the world television premier of HICCUPS was this past Monday, March 1st on CTV. We were all waiting patiently Tuesday to get word from the network about our ratings. “How many people watched?” we wondered breathlessly. Well, I was breathless at least. Mind you, I had walked to the post office earlier in the day, which is about five blocks away. (Taking a moment to reach around and pat myself on the back. Uh-oh… I think I pulled something.)
Tuesday afternoon word came in. Are you ready for this? 1.9 MILLION VIEWERS tuned in to watch!!! Are you kidding me? 1.9 Million!!! To put that in perspective, that is almost 2 million. It’s more than 1.8 million people! Wrap your head around those apples my fine feathered friends. That is more than any of us expected, for sure.
All those viewers stayed to watch Dan For Mayor too, which follows our show at 8:30pm. So it looks like CTV’s Monday Comedy Block is off to a kick-A start. (“The Bachelor” which was up against us, only drew 1.3 million. Take THAT guy making out with a bunch of strange chicks he doesn’t really know!)
Big thanks to CTV for the fantastic promotion they did – especially during the Olympics. And the billboards and the bus shelter ads… they even stuck our faces on the side of some Skytrains out here in Vancouver. Imagine my giant head whipping past you at 70kmh before you’ve had your morning coffee. Not something you’re likely to forget, unless your psyche decides it’s disturbing enough to mentally block the image.
And finally, BIG THANKS to everyone of you who watched, and thanks for spreading the word and telling your friends and families and co-workers etc. It makes a big difference, and for that I am… as we say in mock Spanish… mui mui obligado. Mucho appreciado amigos.
- Brent

Olympic Games Launch Pad: New CTV Original Series HICCUPS, DAN FOR MAYOR, and THE BRIDGE Get Post-Olympic Games Premieres

Brent Butt, Nancy Robertson and Fred Ewanuick return in HICCUPS and DAN FOR MAYOR, March 1

CTV announced today it has strategically scheduled three new Original Canadian series to debut next month, immediately following the conclusion of the VANCOUVER 2010 OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES. The three series will benefit from weeks of promotion during what is to be one of the most-watched television events of the year.

First, CTV’s hit Monday night comedy block expands to two hours on March 1, the day following the close of Vancouver 2010. At 8 p.m. ET, Brent Butt is back in HICCUPS, starring CORNER GAS’ co-star Nancy Robertson as children’s author Millie Upton. Then, at 8:30 p.m. ET, CORNER GAS alumnus Fred Ewanuick stars as a hapless electoral candidate in DAN FOR MAYOR. Both comedies join Top 10, smash-hit, laugh-makers TWO AND A HALF MEN and THE BIG BANG THEORY, which follow at 9 p.m. ET and 9:30 p.m. ET, respectively.

Episodes of HICCUPS, DAN FOR MAYOR and THE BRIDGE will also be available on demand in HD on the CTV Video Player at CTV.ca following their television broadcast. HICCUPS and DAN FOR MAYOR also air Saturdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT and 8:30 p.m. ET/PT beginning March 6 on The Comedy Network and will also be available for purchase from popular download sites.

HICCUPS
Set in Vancouver, the hilarious Nancy Robertson (CORNER GAS) stars as Millie Upton, a children’s author with anger management issues and other emotional “hiccups”, who seeks guidance from less-than-qualified life coach Stan Dirko. Playing Dirko is the mastermind behind CTV’s hit comedy CORNER GAS, Brent Butt, who also acts as creator, writer, executive producer and director. It’s a case of the lost leading the lost, with the best of intentions and very little chance of success. HICCUPS series regulars include Laura Soltis (THE GUARD), David Ingram (SMALLVILLE), Emily Perkins (Ginger Snaps) and Paula Rivera (FLASHPOINT).

DAN FOR MAYOR
Dan’s (CORNER GAS star Fred Ewanuick) life has been fairly uneventful until he is faced with the unexpected career change of running for mayor of his hometown. He lives and works in the fictional city of Wessex, Ontario, has the same friends since grade school, his most prized possession is a vintage Ms. Pac-Man game, and his last serious relationship was with a girl who is now engaged to someone else. DAN FOR MAYOR follows Dan’s journey of self-discovery as he, his ex-girlfriend, Claire (Mary Ashton, DEGRASSI GOES HOLLYWOOD), and best friend, Jeff (Paul Bates, Welcome to Mooseport), figure out Dan’s new-found political career, deal with the unexpected and prove that experience isn’t everything. DAN FOR MAYOR also stars Ben Ayres (VAMPIRE DIARIES); Suzanne Coy (HEARTLAND); Agam Darshi (SANCTUARY); Laurie Murdoch (FLASHPOINT); David Ferry (THIS IS WONDERLAND); and Lara Jean Chorostecki (DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION).
