Power & Politics (or Power & Politics with Evan Solomon) is a Canadian television news program focused on national politics that debuted October 26, 2009 on CBC News Network. Hosted by Evan Solomon Mondays to Thursdays and Rosemary Barton on Fridays, the show airs from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays.[1] Other CBC political journalists also occasionally host the show when Solomon or Barton is unavailable.

Since fall 2011, Barton or other CBC political correspondents have hosted on Fridays, as CBC Radio One's The House, now also hosted by Solomon, is recorded on Fridays (although Solomon also appears briefly on the Friday edition to plug that week's The House).
