Entertainment Tonight Canada (ET Canada) is a Canadian entertainment news television series, using the same format as the American entertainment newsmagazine Entertainment Tonight. ET Canada airs back-to-back with the American version on most of Global's stations.

ET Canada is hosted by longtime Global Toronto entertainment reporter Cheryl Hickey and Rick Campanelli. Reporters associated with the program include Roz Weston, Erin Cebula, Natasha Gargiulo and Sangita Patel.[1]


The show was nominated for a Gemini Award in the best general interest series category in 2006.

The show has also added two spin-off type shows. "ET Canada: Behind the Scenes" gives viewers a peak behind the curtain, showcasing the team behind the brand. There have been two installments to date, the first highlighting the Toronto International Film Festival, debuted in October 2011. The second brought fans to the Grammy Awards, and documented the last minute-changes to the live red carpet show, in the wake of Whitney Houston's shocking sudden death.

"ET Canada: Conversations" highlights major international stars in extended long form interviews. The premiere episode featured Michael Bublé and aired in December 2011. Since then, One Direction, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Nickelback, and Carrie Underwood have all been subjects.

ET Canada has also co-branded Global's coverage of New Year's Eve festivities from Niagara Falls, Ontario.[2]
