That was fast. Just one day after the debut of Rob Ford’s tv show, in a move that the government of Toronto is surely envious of, Sun News Network announced on Tuesday it’s cancelling the mayor’s “Ford Nation” show. Kory Teneycke, vice president of Sun News Network, told CNN that the time and production needed to air the show meant it wasn’t going to last, even though, according to Teneycke, "it beat our record of 100,000 viewers." There’s also the fact that Rob Ford doesn’t exactly need his own reality show to reach viewers since he's been a one-man reality show for weeks now.
Did Sun News make the right call? Give "Ford Nation" a watch and you be the judge.
