Ed the Sock Leaves CITY-TV

Ed the SockRogers Cable has told Ed the Sock creator Steven Kerzner that his last show on CITY-TV will air August 31. Ed the Sock joins Amber Mac, Silverman Helps and Speakers Corner in the Rogers CITY-TV graveyard.

My brothers and I used to watch Ed the Sock on Cable 10 before CITY-TV picked up the broadcast rights. At the time, it was co-hosted by Harland Williams and we thought he was pretty damn funny. A couple of hosts later, on CITY-TV, my good friend Humble Howard Glassman co-hosted with Ed.

In an interview I did with Humble Howard a couple of years ago I asked him about working with Ed the Sock. Here's what he had to say about Ed.

Q: I hear things didn't end well with you and the sock on Ed's Night Party? Care to dish the deets?

A: I don't want to say anything about ED or the midget that has his hand up his ass that hasn't already been said by just about everyone that's met him.

Karma can sometimes be a bitch.

I don’t know this guy personally but he was damn funny – especially with his worst videos of the year shows.

I missed the post about Speaker's Corner. Damn I liked that show. I was on it once a long time ago and I appeared in a commercial for it. I was smart and sang a song about Speaker's Corner with a friend. Remember the "Devil's Advocates" and the "Old Guy".

Oh, the sock. Ah, I didn't like him anyway. Although Conan did steal his schtick.

Conan stole his schtick and those Fromage shows were always fun.

OK, but doesn't he beat Leno and Letterman here? Just saying. Another boneheaded move by Rogers. Some poeple like Ed and Red

Eric Tunny and Humble Howard were the best hots.

I used to smile when a City truck passed by now I frown as I wonder how soon before they point the thing red and turn it into a Rogers cable truck, lol.

Don't hate the player, hate the game.

I will miss the show. I didn't watch it every week, but it was the kind of thing that I was glad to know it would always be there to give me a laugh when I needed it. I guess nothing is forever. I'm sure Ed will have another show pretty soon, he's a Canadian icon.

I was reading that comment by Humble Howard. It's funny, because a friend's cousin works at Muchmusic and apprently the guy that does Ed is the most-liked person in the f'in company. He was the only TV person in the place who used his influence to stand up to management on behalf of crew when they were being mistreated. And he and his wife get homeless people off the street and into jobs.

On the other hand, I have heard from people who worked with Humble Howard at 102.1 and the other FM station he worked at (shudder) that Howard was the most insecure, selfish and just mean person. Nobody -- nobody -- liked him and he always claimed everyone ELSE was an asshole. Sounds like the same thing here.

I mean, have you found any similar comments about Howard by the Sock guy? Who has more class?

Just my thots.
