Pretty soon you won’t be able to spell “Crappy” without E!

CanWest to bring celebrity-focused E! Network to Canadians
The U.S. cable network that popularized “where are they now?” celebrity exposÈs and red carpet reporting by Joan Rivers is heading north of the border.
CanWest will bring E! Networks to Canada by rebranding its CH network E! as of Sept. 1, CanWest MediaWorks announced Tuesday.
In an agreement with the U.S. network, the upcoming Canadian version of the celebrity and entertainment-focused channel will feature a mix of E! programming as well as Canadian-produced content, CanWest said.
Current E! offerings include the popular celebrity documentary series E! True Hollywood Stories, the Playboy mansion-set reality show The Girls Next Door and a news show hosted by American Idol’s Ryan Seacrest.
CH stations will continue to have relaunched local news and information programming, CanWest said.
“We are very confident that the powerful combination of the E! brand and content, alongside our Canadian and local programming, will resonate strongly with Canadian audiences,” said Kathleen Dore, CanWest’s president of Canadian television.
