CBC’s new shows

A look at CBC's new shows for fall - and what they're up against.

Men with Brooms
Mondays 8:30-9 p.m.
Based on the movie of the same name, this Paul Gross-produced comedy follows a group of small-town friends and their follies at the local curling rink. This show has potential Corner Gas appeal – and curling is more popular here than in any other country in the world – but it will have a tough time in its Monday timeslot, going up against House on Global and Dancing with the Stars on CTV.

All For One with Debbie Travis
Sundays  9-10 p.m.
Once one of HGTV’s DIY queens, Debbie Travis has found a new home on CBC prime time. Leaving her decorating roots behind, Travis’s new show will profile average Canadians who have led inspiring or extraordinary lives. The twist?
Crowd-sourced content: Canadians were invited to submit their nominations for the “unsung heroes” they think are worthy of recognition. With only eight episodes, a demographically uncompetitive timeslot and a boost from CBC’s Battle of the Blades at 8 p.m., this show should fare well for the network.
