In case you aren’t watching Schitt’s Creek, Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara showed up to the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to clue you in on the fact that they have a show, and you can actually watch it – on Pop TV in most of America, and CBC if you’re cool enough to live in Maine.
Now, if you’re watching it on Pop TV, I’m afraid you’re behind, but the good news is that the second season is hitting on Wednesdays.
Well, the Canadian Screen Awards were a few days ago, and Schitt’s Creek won nine awards, which I suspect is just about everything the show could have possibly won. The awards even managed to put Eugene Levy in the awkward position of being nominated for the same award as his son, Dan, who also stars and is a co-creator of the show. Eugene talks about being in that unique position in the clip below.
The show is hilarious, but getting the stars to play Pictionary with Jimmy and Shailene Woodley is up there as well. Possibly the best part is that Woodley really seems like she just wants out, and Levy is out of his element when it comes to phrases. Maybe they just don’t say that in Canada.
If you aren’t hip yet, make sure you seek out the show, because it’s just too funny, and if a network has bothered to get some of Canada’s best programming into your home, that’s behavior that ought to be encouraged.
Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara talk to Jimmy about their Pop TV comedy, Schitt’s Creek, and Eugene’s Canadian Screen Award win over his son on the show and in real life.
