After the cancellation of the Gill Deacon Show in 2007, CBC programmers still wanted to feature a daytime lifestyle program targeted at women. The new show would feature two familiar faces, Steven Sabados and Chris Hyndman from The Designer Guys, a daytime show that had been popular on HGTV in Canada, and 17 countries worldwide. The series debuted in January 2008, and ran until August 2015, when Chris Hyndman's untimely death caused the show to be cancelled.
However, Steven Sabados's popularity prompted the CBC to develop a new show for him, which debuted on Monday October 3rd 2016 at 2 pm. The show was titled The Goods, and appearing on the series with Steven were comic and fashion expert Jessi Cruickshank, lifestyle expert Andrea Bain and chef Shahir Massoud.
Steven Sabados, Jessi Cruickshank, Andrea Bain and Shahir Massoud combined to host the series, which premiered in the fall of 2016. The seriess appeared modelled on Sabados's previous series with his late spouse and business partner Chris Hyndman, but was not as successful, and The Goods taped its final episode in April 2018.
