CTV’s The Social Celebrates its 1000th Episode

Congratulations to our speakers Marci Ien and Lainey Lui, co-hosts of TV talk show The Social, for celebrating their milestone 1000th episode this Friday, March 9! (A special nod goes to Jann Arden who brings her irreverent humour as the occasional “fifth chair” on the show.) The Social is a talk show focused on buzzworthy round-table chats about the latest news, pop culture, and lifestyle topics. Its differentiator is that it incorporates interaction with its audience via social media before, during, and after the show. The Social is Canada’s most-watched lifestyle program and averages a weekly reach of 3 million views on CTV, CTV Two, and E!.

“Every day on the show, I feel like we’re talking to our friends across Canada. Going forward, that’s what I hope for more of: friendship, conversation, understanding, and fun,” says prominent gossip columnist, Lainey.

Veteran journalist, Marci Ien, encourages the continuation of the conversation. “What I love the most about The Social is that it’s a safe place to share our opinions and we aren’t afraid of tackling real topics that resonate with our viewers. I hope the next 1,000 episodes bring honest discussions about what Canadians are facing in their everyday lives and we will continue to share our stories – in my case, overshare!”

To mark the occasion, fans can interact with the show in real time through a simultaneous Facebook Live 360 degree broadcast and vote on various topics of discussion. Clips of memorable moments are also being showcased on the show’s social media platforms. Don’t miss the big episode, which airs at 1 p.m. EST on March 9.
