Whoo hoo!!! Finally a network pounces for gold.
In a stunning breath of sexism, TVO axed Studio 2 last summer to create an awfully similar The Agenda (except for its retina-burning sets) in order, in my opinion, to sideline Paula Todd into doing only Person2Person interviews, wasting her talent and depriving us viewers of her incisiveness and wit. Just because it was a woman who blew her into TV hinterland, doesn't make it any less sexist, and the most overt I've seen in a long time on television. A lot of people must've been as ticked as me because the biggest number of Google hits this site gets by far is for Paula Todd.
Now watching the Conrad Black piece on CTV Toronto News, who suddenly popped up on the screen but Paula Todd. I shot up and paid attention. There she is in Chicago in her debut as legal analyst for CTV News, and twice they told us her new show The Verdict will begin on CTV Newsnet tonight at 9:00 pm or on CTV's broadband network. I would've preferred that she appear on her own show on network television, as you don't need cable or satellite to tune it in, but this is huge vindication for Todd and her loyal fans like me.
