The little mosque on the prairie - new hit TV show
Record debut for CBC with Little Mosque [Excerpts] More than two million Canadians tuned [for the first episode of] Little Mosque on the Prairie, the new CBC Television comedy about a Muslim community in a rural town that has been the subject of worldwide attention. The figure -- 2.1 million -- is a huge one for a Canadian television show. Little Mosque drew one million more viewers than Rick Mercer Report, its lead-in. Corner Gas, CTV's big sitcom hit, routinely pulls in about 1.5 million viewers a week. The CBC says Little Mosque was its highest-rated debut of a series ever. Kirstine Layfield, director of network programming, says it appears that Little Mosque won its time slot, even besting a brand-new episode of the red-hot medical drama House. The network also says it is receiving considerable interest from U.S. broadcasters and agents. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20070111.MOSQUE11/TPStory/? query=little+mosque+on+the+prairie While Canadians were chuckling at the muslim show, Dispatches in Britain aired a horrific program showing the truth about what is really being said and done in the name of Islam in Britain. Cameras recorded muslim clerics stirring up hatred in mosques in Britain and recommending that Christians and Jews be killed. And one cleric said to forget gender equality because 'There is no such thing.' He was right about that. There certainly is no such thing when the Islamics gain total power in a country. There are not many Christians and Jews in such countries either.
