Ordinarily, I don’t cover regular programming notes — I usually just leave them for the Cheap Plugs category. But Coronation Street is different. Everyone at the Ceeb learns all too well that the two things you don’t mess with on CBC Television is hockey and Coronation Street.
Well, we’re messing with it. But do not freak out — fan(atic)s will get their full complement of episodes.Fortunately, we'll still get a full week of episodes.
On Monday, Jan. 22, we’ll telecast back-to-back episodes at 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The series will be pre-empted on Tuesday, Jan. 23 for the NHL All-Star Skills Competition and on Wednesday, Jan. 24 for the NHL All-Star Game.
”Corrie” will be seen at its regularly scheduled time on Thursday, Jan. 25 at 7 p.m., and on Friday, Jan. 26, when back-to-back episodes air at 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
And remember, don’t shoot the messenger.
