$#*! My Dad Says

Canadian actor William Shatner isn’t letting the recent cancellation of $#*! My Dad Says get him down, saying its will free up time to do other things he wants to do.

“It’s really disappointing because I thought it was funny … and it was on its way to being better,” Shatner said yesterday.

“The thing I’ll miss most is that they were wonderful people that I became associated with. I just loved them – the cast, the crew and the management .

“On the other hand, it frees me up to do many of these other things I want to do.”

The actor has a lot on his plate at the moment, with a Star Trek-themed documentary out soon as well as a new album and a book called Shatner Rules.

Next month, Shatner will be making an appearance at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, which runs from 17 -19 June.

William Shatner is set to be honoured by Canada’s governor general with a lifetime achievement award in May.

The Montreal-born actor and Oscar-winning composer Howard Shore will both receive the awards at the 2011 Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards for Lifetime Artistic Achievement.

Shatner will be honoured for his career in the arts which has spanned six decades, with his highest achievement undoubtedly being his portrayal of Captain Kirk on the Star Trek TV series.

The GG honours will be awards on May 14 in Ottawa.

MY DAD SAYS is also the most-watched new Fall program on Canadian television since CSI: NEW YORK premiered in 2004. Landing at #9 on the list of the Top 10 highest-rated programs on Canadian television this Fall for A25-54, the series led CTV to claim six of the Top 7 new programs of the season.

A ratings report card of the past 12 weeks shows that CTV ends the Fall Season firmly at the top of the charts and leading in all genres, including Canada’s #1 series and #1 comedy, THE BIG BANG THEORY, the only program to average more than 3 million viewers.

Averaging 1.78 million viewers in primetime, CTV’s strong Fall lineup saw the network increase its lead significantly over Global, and now leads its nearest rival by 83%, compared to a 58% difference last Fall. Indeed, CTV saw its overall primetime audience increase slightly by 2% versus Fall 2009, while Global dropped 12%.
