Michael: Tuesdays & Thursdays and The Debaters move to form Tuesday comedy block on CBC

CBC-TV makes the already laugh-filled Tuesdays even funnier with the addition of two of its outstanding new television comedies. Starting Tuesday, September 27, 2011, CBC-TV’s spotlight on Canadian comedy now includes MICHAEL: TUESDAYS & THURSDAYS and THE DEBATERS.

Next week, CBC-TV’s clever new gem, MICHAEL: TUESDAYS & THURSDAYS, the newest creation of acclaimed writer-producer-actor Bob Martin (Slings & Arrows, The Drowsy Chaperone) moves from Wednesdays to Tuesdays.

Martin stars as Dr. David Storper, an Ottawa psychiatrist specializing in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. He has been seeing his patient, Michael Dyer (Matt Watts) on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 15 years. Michael believes David is his key to happiness. David believes Michael is his key to a lucrative book deal. We’ll see.
