Benmergui, Ralph

A few years ago, this man, together with terminally earnest Tina Srebotnjak, was CBC management’s idea of television intellectualism. He has since plummeted from the middlebrow haven of Midday to the ill-conceived and misnomered Ralph Benmergui Live all the way down to hosting an unresearched CBC Newsworld open mouth show from the corporation’s rotunda in Toronto, to hosting inspirational talk shows on Vision TV, Canada’s religious television channel. Benmergui still fancies himself a comedian, and commentators and critics across the country still stay up late at night trying to think of ways to convince him he’s not.
