Presumably this Corrie cornucopia will end once the CBC lock-out ends, once the network has its regular programming back?

A couple of months ago we were informed that beginning this Fall, Coronation Street will be on CBC five nights a week. No further details at this time.

I missed an episode because of erratic CBC scheduling. Since Coronation Street is their only worthwhile program (obviously I'm not a hockey fan), what the dickens are those CBCers doing juggling the schedule all the time? In fact, why bother to put any other program on CBC? Coronation Street, all day, every day: now that's a national broadcaster worth my tax dollars!!!
