Goodbye Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune
The CBC is dropping Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy.
Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy were originally brought in as lead-ins to Canadian shows and at the time, that move was attacked by some critics who said it would water down CBC's mandate.
The chop comes as CBC copes with hefty budget cuts that it says has also forced them to shelve Battle of the Blades, Redemption Inc., Michael: Tuesdays & Thursdays and Being Erica.
The last episodes of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy will air Sept. 14 on CBC.
They'll announce replacement series for Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy at their fall launch next week.
I'm going to miss both shows on CBC for reasons like this
