    I have to agree with you, David. We need to have our own versions here.
    Who Wants to Be a Millionaire: Canadian Edition only ran for 1 season, 2 episodes on CTV back in 2000. CTV was going to bring it back in February 2002, build a set in Toronto, the whole nine yards, put it up against the Salt Lake City Olympics, but by then the US primetime version wasn’t getting the ratings anymore, would soon be cancelled, and besides, CTV wasn’t willing to pay the licensing fee from the North American rights holders (Disney Corp). I think it’s time for CTV to make a Canadian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire next year with someone else taking Pamela Wallin’s place.
    If the the set still exists. Because they haven’t had any contestants winning up to $1,000,000.
    CTV should bring Canadian Idol back for a 7th season as revived series and make
    The X Factor Canada.
    The Price Is Right Canada should be made by either Omni Television, or City.
    Wheel of Fortune Canada should be made by either CTV, or CBC.
    And finally, Family Feud Canada should be made by either NTV, or GameTV, or CTS.
