This Hour Has 22 Minutes Premieres on CBC Television Tuesday, September 13 at 8:30 pm

HALIFAX, Sept. 12, 2011 /CNW/ - The long wait is over!  Canadian comedy institution This Hour Has 22 Minutes returns for its 19th season on Tuesday, September 13 at 8:30 pm on CBC Television.  Shaun Majumder rejoins cast members Mark Critch, Geri Hall and Cathy Jones to savagely satirize Canadian politics and daily events.  Politicians and celebrities make guest appearances, some willingly, some unwillingly.  No story is off-limits, and no personality is too big for the 22 Minutes team to tackle.

In the season premiere, Mark Critch helps recently retired news anchor Lloyd Robertson find a new job.  And we dig deep to investigate who's really behind the NDP/Liberal Party merger rumours, with Liberal Party Interim Leader Bob Rae, former NDP Leader Ed Broadbent, MPs Robert Chisholm, Pat Martin and Carolyn Bennett, and potential NDP leadership candidate Brian Topp.  We also take on Mother Nature, polygamy…and the Stanley Cup gets a concussion.

This Hour Has 22 Minutes is produced by DHX Media in association with CBC Television.  www.dhxmedia.com    www.facebook.com/22Minutes
