Bullard premieres on Global next month


TORONTO - Global Television Network made official today that The Mike Bullard Show will premiere on the full Global network on Monday night, November 24th, 2003.

Bullard's highly publicized move from CTV to the Global Television Network was announced in early August of this year. "His multi-year deal will see him play an active role in CanWest's newspaper and online properties, as well as in features on Global's entertainment and news properties, in addition to hosting his late night talk-variety show," says the Global press release.

Six years ago, while still working at his day job as a Bell Canada auditor, Bullard's burgeoning comedic reputation landed him a plum offer from the then-fledgling Comedy Network: to host a new flagship program, Open Mike with Mike Bullard.

Bullard quit his day job. Open Mike was soon added to the main CTV network.

Beginning November 24th, The Mike Bullard Show will be seen five nights a week at midnight on the Global Television Network. The show will be taped nightly, in front of a studio audience, at the new Global Theatre on the Esplanade in Toronto.
