It was confirmed by the head honchos at CTV that Charlie Sheen's new sitcom, Anger Management, will be broadcasting in Canada on CTV. As production on the show doesn't start until next year, there were no further details to share on scheduling or the networks plan for the strategic multi-platform roll-out.
The official announcement came after a taped message from Charlie himself, speaking directly to all of Canada about joining the fold. He said:

This is a sight we thought we'd never see: Pamela Anderson holding the baby Jesus.
After the controversial decision to cast Pammy as the Virgin Mary in A Russell Peters Christmas Special was made, we weren't exactly sure what to expect.
Well, here it is.
Canadians got to watch the (above) special starring the former Baywatch star.
We think we see Courtney Stodden's future.

We love to see celebrities giving back to the world which has given them so much!
Pop star Nelly Furtado recently joined a non-profit volunteer arts organization, Artbound, on their first assignment to build Free The Children’s first all girls secondary school in the Maasai Mara region of Kenya.
High tuition costs in the region mean that less than 5% of girls will be able to attend high school and only 1 girl a year moves on to a college education.
You can watch Nelly's journey unfold on Saturday, September 10 at 7 p.m. on CTV in the documentary Nelly Furtado: The Road To Kisaruni. Apparently, the experience really had an effect on her too, as she said:
"It was just extraordinary to be in Kenya and to meet all the people and to share music and celebrate art. I’m completely changed and really excited about the future. It’s made me want to try harder as a woman, as a person, as a mother and as a citizen of the world.”
Aww! Tune in and check out more information on this wonderful initiative here!
