Canadian-themed eps to mark Wheel‘s move

To mark its shift from CTV to the CBC, Wheel of Fortune will kick off with fun elements featuring the Great White North.

CBC is the new home of Wheel of Fortune starting in October, and the show will celebrate its migration from CTV with Canadian-themed shows.

Explains longtime Wheel host Pat Sajak, ‘It gave us a chance to spend the week sort of officially welcoming the CBC aboard.’

The north-of-the-border eps will air October 13-17 in the 5:30 pm time slot and feature Canuck-related puzzles, plus prizes that include trips to Canadian destinations like Vancouver, Ottawa and Toronto.

Sajak says the kick-off shows on the Ceeb will include ‘some Canadian fun facts, because a lot of Americans are not necessarily well-versed in what goes on north of their border. We had fun with that.’
