Pet Peeves

Broadcast Run: 
1986 to 1987
Broadcast Medium: 
Television

Intended to provide an outlet for all those people who wanted to say “What bugs me most is……….”, Pet Peeves was a good idea in a vain search for a viable format. Despite the earnest efforts of comedic actor Harvey Atkin as host, Pet Peeves peeved more people than it placated, and was yanked after only one season.

Peeves was produced in the studios of CFTO-TV Toronto, and the half-hour ran in the 7:30pm time period on Wednesdays during the 1986-87 season.
