Sun News cancels Rob Ford and Doug Ford program after one broadcast

That did not last long.

"The Globe and Mail is reporting that Ford Nation was a huge ratings success, pulling in about 155,000 viewers—that counts as a success for Sun News, which reaches only 40 per cent of Canadian homes—but is being binned anyhow because of “the Fords’ relative inexperience with the medium.” Apparently, yesterday’s episode took whopping five hours to shoot and another eight hours to edit. That’s a huge amount of resources for the fledgling Sun News Network. The economics just couldn’t support keeping the show on the air."
