attached to his finger in time for his new show.
It is well known that Stephen Colbert is set to take over from David Letterman as host of the Late Show on September 8th. Entertainment Tonight Canada now reports that Michael Coren will be taking over as host of CBC's soon-to-be revived The Hour, which had been hosted by George Stroumboulopoulos.
Coren is no stranger to television nor to Canadians.
The producer of the show, Diane Brown, tells us that "It will be funny, very Catholic and very interesting."
She then hastened to add, "If by funny and Catholic you mean Coren berating orthodox Catholics for sixty-minutes at a time for being homophobic, all the while attesting to his belief in the Creed, the Trinity and Mary, and while reassuring us that he is not himself gay but has been married for a number of years and has children."
"In other words, it will be kind of an uncomfortable, scarier version of what Colbert does."
"If you like stereotypes of traditional Catholic believers as angry and hate-filled, you will love The Hour with host, Michael Coren!"
