Who'd have thought a show about investing would attract millions of viewers each week? Ratings for 'Dragons' Den' hit the two million mark this season, which puts it right up there with 'Hockey Night in Canada'. Season 4 wraps up in December, but the Dragons aren't wasting any time launching the next round: season 5 kicks off in early January.

The Olympics: Day 11

Three nights of ice dancing? No wonder ratings are down for the Olympics. Tonight promises to be the final night of ice dancing, with the free skate. Americans Tanith Belbin and and Ben Agosto are in second place, thanks to some falls by the top teams yesterday. Big-mouthed Bode Miller is back on the slopes, this time in the Giant Slalom. The real talent here, still flying under the radar even after winning a gold medal, is Park City's Ted Ligety. And a cool spectacle tonight will be the men's aerials ski competition. And, after all these days of hockey, the women of Canada and Sweden will play each other for the gold. Here's the schedule on all of NBC's networks:...

Happy Canada Day! TV's Sexiest Canadians

When you think of Canada, what's the first thing that pops into your mind? Hockey, poutine, lumberjacks, Celine Dion or these attractive people: Contrary to popular belief, Canadians can be sexy. REALLY sexy. Case in point: the vampiness of Nina Dobrev in her dual roles on 'The Vampire Diaries'; the long-but-not-too-long hair and aloof-but-still-caring nature of Taylor Kitsch's Tim Riggins on 'Friday Night Lights;' the everything of Nathan Fillion on 'Castle.' In hono(u)r of Canada Day (and in honor of posting pictures of hot actors on our site), check out AOL TV's list of the sexiest Canadians on TV. It's a holiday weekend, you're not doing any real work anyway ......

SoapNet mixes drama with hockey in new series

The success of last summer's General Hospital: Night Shift was the harbinger of things to come. And now they have. SoapNet announced a new 10-episode drama series called MVP: The Secret Lives of Hockey Wives. It makes sense that SoapNet would take another stab at creating its own dramas. Last year's Night Shift, the channel's first attempt at that kind of original programming, proved more popular than the reruns of daytime soaps it had been running at 11 o'clock at night. But the difference between this new offering -- about the ladies in the lives of professional hockey players...hockey and soap? -- is that Night Shift was based on General Hospital and used popular stars from the daytime show for the spin-off. If Steve Burton (Jason), Kimberly McCullough (Robin) and Jason Thompson (Patrick) were not in Nightshift, would SoapNet viewers have tuned in?...

Jimmy Fallon Challenges Cory Monteith to a Jelly Donut Shootout (VIDEO)

Followers of 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC) know how much Jimmy Fallon loves to play games with guests. He debuted a new one tonight that involved elements of hockey, and he was playing against Canadian Cory Monteith. Sounds like Fallon should be at a disadvantage, but Monteith did not do his hockey-representing Canadians proud at all in the first ever Jelly Donut Shootout. First, he was even more stiff and awkward in front of a hockey net trying to play goalie than Finn is at dancing on 'Glee.' Even though he hit a piece of the set way up high, Fallon still managed to score twice on Monteith. When it was Monteith's turn to shoot, Fallon eventually just laid down as his shots weren't even coming close to the net. In the end, it was Fallon winning 2-0. At least Canada can be proud of Monteith's abilities on the small screen....

Great Moments in Canadian TV 2000-2009

10. CBC Gives 'The Tudors' Royal Treatment By 2007, long-form historical dramas like 'Rome' and 'Elizabeth I' were established award winners, but incredibly expensive to produce. By joining a multi-national production alliance that includes Showtime in the US, CBC managed to get its claws into a Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning show, which in the US, has set some ratings records. Granted, 'The Tudors' has had a mixed critical reception, but it continues to do well with viewers. 9. Ron Rescued In 2001, Ron MacLean was ready to leave his job at 'Hockey Night in Canada' and the CBC. When word leaked that the Ceeb wasn't willing to fulfill Ron's contract demands, Canadians revolted. Who else, they figured, would be able to contain Don Cherry to his allotted minutes on 'HNIC'? Public pressure resulted in a quick about-face from the broadcaster, and Ron is still safely ensconced to this day. And really, it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy....
