CHML's Scott Thompson can't believe that last Sunday's Grey Cup broadcast was by far the No. 1 draw in all of Canadian TV this year, topping six million viewers on TSN and RDI. He also can't believe that the Grey Cup always kicks The Super Bowl's butt in the Canadian ratings race. Seeing is believing, Scott, especially if you compare Thursday night's Bills/Jets NFL snoozefest with Sunday's Montreal/Saskatchewan CFL thriller.
He also wanted the dirt on Eric Braeden, the German-born actor who has played Victor Newman on the Young and the Restless for 30 years--and will continue to play him for at least another three after signing a new contract at the last minute in late October. I spoke with gentlemen Braeden for last Saturday's Starweek cover and give Scott the scoop. You can listen in here.
