Power Play is a Canadian public affairs television show which airs weekdays on CTV News Channel. Interviews are conducted with important Canadian political figures as well as political journalists and strategists, and includes a regular segment with CTV's Craig Oliver. The show broadcasts from Parliament Hill and was hosted on a week-by-week basis by various Bell Media journalists, including Jane Taber and Roger Smith, as temporary replacements for the original host Tom Clark upon his departure in September 2010.

On November 30, 2010, CTV announced that Don Martin, a newspaper columnist, would become the new host of Power Play starting in mid-December 2010.[1]

Power Play is the permanent successor to Mike Duffy Live, which aired until December 2008 when Mike Duffy, the host, was appointed to the Senate of Canada. Following the departure of Duffy, a program called On the Hill, hosted by Graham Richardson, ran for one month until Power Play premiered.
