CUPID STRIKES “22 MINUTES”

Valentine’s Day romance blossoms into comedy in all-new episode

Halifax, NS – 10 February 2012 – Whether you are head over heels, recently jilted or stubbornly single, romance breeds laughter this Valentineʼs Day on Canadaʼs well-loved comedy show, This Hour Has 22 Minutes.

The 22 Minutes February 14 episode takes a lighthearted look at sappy sentiment with “Things We Hate About Valentineʼs Day” and with Shaun Majumder discovering how to express love at Hallmarkʼs Canadian headquarters. Watch Betty Hope (Cathy Jones) set fear into the hearts of significant exes in the Panic Room. And even impromptu Valentineʼs engagements take a hit when the Rock Block is revealed over a romantic dinner.

Also in the February 14 episode, the ever-popular Rex Murphy (Mark Critch) shares his heartfelt sentiments around the Queenʼs proposed Diamond Jubilee celebration. And 22 Minutes parodies the new hit TV series “Smash”, with Canadaʼs equivalent, “Grant”.

Dine out Monday the 13th and skip the Valentineʼs Day crowds so you can stay home on February 14 to share laughs with your sweetheart during this all-new 22 Minutes episode.
