Call for Canada

The-New-Call-for-HelpersI‘m very happy to report that I’ve agreed to host a daily show for G4/TechTV Canada starting later this summer. We’ll produce the show here in Toronto. I’ll fly up one week a month to shoot. It looks like the format will be very similar to Call for Help, and, yes, we’ll be taking calls. Once we get the web site up and running there will be a place for you to submit your questions as before.
Pictured at left, my co-hosts (and actual Canadians) the lovely Jelena Mihajlovic and the geeky Andy Walker.

More details to come. Stay tuned. Now we’re off to see the Jays and the Dodgers. I’ll post pictures.

  1. Okay, what enterprising Canadian with a Tivo or All-in-Wonder is going to capture all of the shows and let the rest of us download them? (Even for a fee.)

  2. You don’t seem very happy in the picture, Leo. Hopefully your new show will be great. I was disappointed when i heard that Call For Help was gone from Techtv. I enjoyed it very much. Good luck on your new show though, and have fun!

  3. American CFH fans, start making noise. Lots and lots of noise.
    G4TechTV USA may not want to bankroll CFH themselves, but if there’s enough demand, they might be willing to buy rights to broadcast the programming.

  4. That’s great news! Now if we could only get TechLive back on. And, as long as we’re at it, MuchMusicUSA along with Electric Circus and host Monica D.(and back to good dance music!) But, I guess we can’t be too greedy.

  5. Hey Chuck – when you send that letter don’t forget to send it with insufficient postage, no return address and payment enclosed written on the envelope

  6. I’m so pleased that you’re back but you’re in the wrong country! We need you here! I just switched to a Mac two months ago and I need guidance….

    But I’m from Israel although I used to live in canada
    a while back when I was a kid
    soo how can I get TechTV “CANADA” if at all ?
    what about us the international viewers ?

  8. I miss you already Leo; “The Screen Savers” is (are?) not the same without your witty remarks, Patrick seems lost in a sea of young kids barely out of high school. I still watch but not as enthusiastically. Good luck and God bless you!

  9. Hi Leo,
    That’s so awesome to hear you’re doing Call For Help again. I’m hoping we can somehow watch it here even though you’re doing it in Canada. Have a great time!

  10. Now I’m really ticked off………..who do we have to kill to get you back on in the united states……..I think we should all write letters to G4 and complain……….I know I am

  11. Good luck Leo nice to see you back on TV, Unfortunately we here in New Zealand wont be getting Tech TV or your old show the Screen Savers anymore thanks to Comcast being a bunch of *******.

  12. Yes!!! THe second best thing after Euro 2004! lol In Canada that happeened this week.
    Leo!! U DA MAN now come here and we will pour you with questions!

  13. Its cool Leo’s back on tv, but it sucks its for canada,and its not going to have the cfh crew on it.

  14. Leo, great news for you, and tech tv Canada. I as well as many of my friends were ready to cancel our subscription… tech tv has lost it’s ummm umph since “Uncle Paul” sold the station.
    Looking forward to seeing you on the small screen once again!

  15. Woohoo! This is why Canadians rock! Because we have Leo and we’re not giving him back! 😉

  16. The lovely Jelena Mihajlovic and the geeky Andy Walker are smiling and you aren’t Leo. Could it be that this is a mistake? Could it be that they should be signing with you? Could it be that you can do much better?


  18. Congrats Leo! Hope you will still be on KFI! Just wish we can watch you here in the USA! Come on G4TechTV!!! What about us in the states? We need Leo’s advice!

  19. I miss the old techtv, I still look at the old google cached pages and remember the good times. Good luck leo.

  20. I have missed watching you on screen savers very much so this news is most welcome. I hope you have a studio audience because I will certainly come and see the show!

  21. Amazing. You’re not good enough for the US G4/TechTV, but you are PERFECT for G4/TechTV Canada. Go Figure. Anyway, good luck Leo.

  22. Terrific news!
    I cancelled my TTV subscription after the takeover – G4 splatted almost endless drivel over the schedules.
    Two worthwhile shows and Leo… I’ll be opening my wallet again.

  23. I live 3 hours from Windsor. Canada has everything I need: healthcare, HOCKEY!, Lacrosse, Curling and hockey hall of fame and now Leo bags are packed and ready to go. Wait I am 17 and mom says no. Oh well good luck Leo.

  24. Thank the Lord. Maybe they can take off some of those game shows and fill them with quality Leo.

  25. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is SO EXCELLENT, Leo!!!! you belong on tv!
    now if i can get the show…….

  26. Congratulations Leo! I’m sad I won’t see it, but at least there’s some hope that you’ll come back to U.S. airwaves when comcast realizes the folly of their ways (I know, I know …)

  27. With any luck we’ll be able to sell the finished product back into the US. We’ll also be offering it worldwide and to cable video-on-demand outlets. I’m sure you’ll be able to see it in the States by this Fall.

  28. Congrats Leo on getting the show here in Canada.
    I was at the game last night also….Why didn’t you beat up “the Big Show” and you could have thrown out the first pitch!!

  29. GREAT NEWS, Hopefully g4techtv (USA) will see this new show with higher ratings then any of the g4 game shows and bring you back so we Canadians don’t get all of the computer education. THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY!!!!!

  30. The only way to get G4TechTV from Canada is to purchase a Canadian satellite system (Bell ExpressVu or Starchoice) and have it activated from Canada.

  31. LOL @ The Censor. Its worth a try. Its pretty easy to get a Bell expressview or star choice sateligt from canada to US but now u need someone to program the cards.

  32. Hey thats great Leo….Im up in Canada too!
    will i be able to come see the show live ‘cuz i never got to see yoy live on TSS or CFH

  33. Major congratulations to you Leo. I hope your new show takes off up in Canada. It just makes me wish I lived up there so I could watch. 🙂

  34. Robert . . . yeah, it’s a tradeoff . . . for Michaela Pereira. Quality for quality, you see. 🙂
    Leo, congratulations and welcome.

  35. Leo,
    I knew techtv could not survive without you. Too bad I cannot pick you up stateside. I would much rather learn from you than watch people play video games.
    -Neil E.

  36. Congrats!!!
    I hope this is what you want. Sorry I might not be able to see the show.
    AH heck, I’ll bring the pancakes and syrup.
