“CityNews” Gord Martineau took top honours at the final night of The Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television’s “22nd Annual Gemini Awards”, winning Best News Anchor.

“CityNews at Six” Anchor Gord Martineau took home the Gemini for Best News Anchor at last night’s ceremony in Regina. The annual celebration of excellence in Canada’s English-language television industry unites people from both sides of the camera to honour the past year’s most prominent productions in 91 program, craft and performance categories.

“Gord Martineau is the center of all things CityNews,” said Stephen Hurlbut, Vice-President, News Programming, Citytv and Vice-President and General Manager, CP24. “It has been our privilege to work with Gord and we are absolutely thrilled for our friend and colleague.”

Gord had led the “CityNews” team since 1977, covering elections, international news and local stories, while also lending his name and donating his time to great causes such as Citytv’s Herbie Day. Gord was also honoured earlier this year with an RTNDA Lifetime Achievement Award for his 30 years of dedication to the Canadian television industry.

In every episode, the students of Degrassi: The Next Generation tackle tough issues – but for the first time ever, they’re fighting a different kind of demon … the Undead!

An all-new homage to horror movies, “Degrassi of the Dead” goes live at 3:30 p.m. ET as darkness begins to fall Halloween night on The CTV Broadband Network at CTV.ca.

Directed by original Degrassi cast member Stefan Brogen, the half-hour “Zombisode” also includes behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the special, hosted by three Degrassi cast members.

Degrassi fans can get an early Halloween treat when the 30 minute “Degrassi of the Dead” airs Wednesday, Oct. 31 at 1 p.m. ET on CTV (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times). The special will also be available on demand on MTV Overdrive at MTV.ca.

In “Degrassi of the Dead,” horror hits Degrassi Community School when genetically modified food turns most of the students into Zombies. As The Undead walk the earth seeking fresh flesh, only a few survivors are left to fight against Zombie domination: how will Manny and Paige survive? In the second half of the Zombisode, Degrassi stars Cassie Steele (Manny Santos), Lauren Collins (Paige Michalchuk) and Aubrey Graham (Jimmy Brooks) go behind-the-scenes and share their thoughts on filming Degrassi’s first-ever “Zombisode.”

“The idea of doing a project that was a little dark and scary but still within the Degrassi universe really appealed to me,” said Brogren (Archie ‘Snake’ Simpson), director, producer and writer of “Degrassi of the Dead.” “I was also encouraged by the enthusiasm of the entire production team to push the envelope and do something completely different. I was amazed at how many actors came to me and asked to die a zombie death. Everyone involved really came to play!”

Degrassi of the Dead!

This week on Survivor: China

At Zhan Hu, James is up early carrying water while the others sleep. He knows that he’ll have to work hard so they win the next immunity challenge or he’ll be gone.

At Fei Long, Jean-Robert is snoring loudly. Todd is up talking to Amanda about the Immunity Idol. She had no idea but today they know they will have to find it or if they lose in the immunity challenge then one of them will be going home.

At the reward challenge, the tribes must race one at a time through an old Chinese village and find a puzzle piece which when placed inside a grid will reveal a phrase from Confucious which reads “The Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins With A Single Step”.

The winners will be taken to a nearby island where they will enjoy time at a tea house with some tea, a bath, and a western toilet.

Peigh Gee tells Sherea that they’re still in it with them and to tell Todd.

Fei Long cleans up brings James home for a night and the reward. He’s most happy about that. Jeff hands James the bamboo pipe which has the next Immunity Idol clue in it.

The Tea House has a spectacular view and while their hosts bring out some snacks, they bath and shower and clean up a little. It’s a real treat. James stips off and Amanda and Courtney comment on his nice butt.

Back at Zhan Hu, they’re talking about how they have to win immunity because Sherea and Frosti were a little cold towards them during the challenge.

Todd talks to James and tells him to give him what is inside the scoll and he will help save his life. James has no idea what is inside the scroll until he opens it and is relieved and hopeful that it will help his situation.

James hands Todd the scroll which reads “There are four that surround it and four much the same. The etched finer could salvage the game”.

With that clue, Todd figures out where it is. Todd and Amanda start trying to knock it off the top of the entrance and Amanda starts knocking off tiles so it doesn’t look too obvious what they’re doing. Frosti comes over to help and almost spoils the party but they get it just in time.

Todd gives the idol to James and tells him to throw the next challenge at Zhan Hu and vote for Jamie.

Todd tells Courtney and Denise that he found the Immunity Idol and that they need to fight to win as James is going to throw the Immunity Challenge.

The task is a food challenge eating Chinese dishes. Courtney, Denise and Amanda sat out the last challenge which means they have to play in this one along with Frosti. It’s a game to four. Frosti takes the first challenge over Peigh Gee with Chicken Hearts. Jamie beats Courtney with Eel. Erik beats Amanda with baby turtles and then James beats Denise with unhatched chickens after Denise quits and James had given her a head start. Next up is a thousand year old egg between Erik and Frosti which Jeffs tells them will rival anything they’ve ever eaten before. Erik wins giving Zhan Hu the win. Denise fells as though she’s really let her team down.

Todd is annoyed that his perfect plan has failed. Todd talks to Denise and Amanda and they decide it’s Sherea’s time to go. However, Courtney still has an axe to grind against Jean-Robert and talks to Sherea about getting rid of him. Courtney talks to Amanda and Todd about how much she hates Jean-Robert.

Jean-Robert is feeling a little uneasy. Todd talks to Amanda and feels as though they need to get rid of Jean-Robert as they’re setting themselves up as power players and if they don’t do something now then they will get turned on at some point.

At Tribal Council, the votes fall against Sherea and Jean-Robert breathes easy again for a moment.

Made: Kickboxer

Will she give up her partying ways to focus on her training?

How will Allyshia’s friends react to her desire to toughen up? Will she win her final fight?

Tila is a model, singer and the most popular girl in the history of MySpace and she’s finally ready to get serious about finding someone to get serious with.

The only catch is that Tila is bisexual — so she isn’t sure if she should settle down with a man or a woman.

MTV found sixteen straight guys and sixteen lesbians to vie for her love and attention.

The finalists move into her mansion and live together while each week, Tila narrows down her suitors from the group of 32 paramours.

Will the best man or woman win Tila Tequila’s heart? Is there more chemistry with the men or the women?

Catch-up on the first five steamy episodes of “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila.”

Sunday, November 25 from 1 – 6 p.m. ET on MTV

Made: Wakeboarder

In this all new episode of “Made” viewers will meet Choker.

He’s a goofy computer dude from the heart of Canada’s cottage country – Bracebridge, ON. He’s buddies with binary numbers and his blogs, but lacks friends in the flesh.

“Made” hooks him up with Muscoda’s finest coach and attempts to take him from wimp to wakeboarding wonder; but is six weeks enough to prove to his small town that Choker has skills on the water and with the women?
