CBC's The Hour

I'm not exactly sure when this happened, but George Stroumboulopoulos's The Hour (CBC) is now available as a daily streaming video. Even though it started after I left Canada, I've watched it a number of times when I've been home. It's refreshingly good television- smart, hip, direct and honest. George S. presents a great mix of commentary, news, entertainment, and interviews. And unlike the Daily Show's John Stewart (I still don't understand why a news satire show has guests in the first place), George is a great interviewer. In addition to the full show, the site also has a bunch of other video highlights. Check it out.
