  • Industryites push for Toronto studio
    Wednesday June 03rd 2009

    Industryites kick-started a campaign to reopen the Toronto Film Studios on Monday. The 16-soundstage facility, co-owned by Rose Corp. and Smart!Centres, has been shuttered since December. The result is a space crunch for small- to medium-size productions, already compromised by the 2007 closure of four Cinespace stages at Marine Terminal 28.

  • Conan O’Brien takes reins on ‘The Tonight Show’
    Tuesday June 02nd 2009

    The first joke of the first night of a brand new era on arguably TV’s most important and historic show (and, hey, not a bad joke at all): “Well,” said Conan O’Brien, the fifth host of ” The Tonight Show,” “I’ve timed this moment perfectly. I’m on a last place network, I moved to a state that’s bankrupt, and tonight’s show is sponsored by General Motors.” And so began the reign of the once and future king of “Tonight” who indeed joins a show whose network is long past “flagging” and which will soon deploy the last host of “Tonight” to fill the 10 p.m. hour.
