So I don’t know if you know but Michael Jackson died.
Seriously. I’m not joking. Â
Well if you didn’t know, you soon will.
Later today will be the memorial for the King of Pop and CTV will be giving it’s viewers over 60 HOURS of coverage of the proceedings over it’s 10 different stations.
How is that possible you ask? Â Well here is the rundown.
Traci Melchor, who isÂ some-sortÂ of Michael Jackson expert, Â will be live directly from the Staples Center while ETALKâ€™S Tanya Kim will continue to be forced to share screen time with Ben Mulroney and MuchMusicâ€™s Leah Miller from CTVâ€™s Queen Street headquarters in Toronto.
This (probable) overÂ saturationÂ will continue on CTV properties such as MuchMusic, CTV News Channel, CP24, CTV.ca and muchmusic.com!
Shockingly TSN will not be participating.
I don’t know if CTV is expecting you to flip through their stations and give them all ratings or what. Â To me, it would make more sense for one station to have all the exclusive footage and have their ratings go through the roof. Â But what the hell do I know.
Some of the acts expected to appear at the memorial include:Â Kobe Bryant; Mariah Carey; Andrae Crouch Choir; Berry Gordy; Jennifer Hudson; Shaheen Jafargholi (finalist on Britainâ€™s Got Talent); Magic Johnson; Martin Luther King III; Bernice A. King; John Mayer; Lionel Richie; Smokey Robinson; Rev. Al Sharpton; Brooke Shields; Pastor Lucious Smith (family friend); Usher; and Stevie Wonder.
Macauley Culkin isÂ apparentlyÂ busy…working at Baskin Robins.
Today’s question: What does it take to be a Michael Jackson expert?
