So what did happened to V&A Top 10? I haven't watched YTV in years...


lol, why don't some of you e-mail Janis Mackey Freyer and ask her if she was on YTV?

Yeah Phil was great. Looking back though, maybe better times ahead. Jen(ifer) went from YTV to host a horrible show at Baton, called something like Baton Master Control, anyway it was abysmal, she was solo and it didn't suit her at all, so maybe Phil's just killing time until something like Friends comes along.
haha i used to watch that! I rememer some ttc episode where they showed where the garbage goes from the subway. Pretty cool well 10 years ago it was.

PJ Jenn went on to host the Saturday morning block on CTV, lost track of her after that.

I don't know where the Aniston thing started up... :confused:

Saw him downtown once, he looked pissed.

I dug The Antigravity Room (but not the neurotic Gamerz), some of it was pointlessly eccentric but they gave some shine to indie books and interesting stories.

AGR was kind of cool... I don't think YTV does any original programming anymore though. Ah well. :lol:

And... yeah, I don't think PJ Jen was Jennifer Aniston... though, I could be wrong... but it just doesn't make sense to me. :p

It's kind of sad how a lot of these people just dropped out of existence.

Remember YTV News? Yikes.

I believe Gord was on a sci-fi show that aired on YTV before ending up on Andromeda.

BTW, what's a "PJ"?
What does it stand for?
From a "Family" reviewer: "We Cheer teaches coordination, enticement to lust, women being used as sex objects, and team work."

From Worthy Playing: "We Cheer is, then, for all intents and purposes, the F-Zero GX of music games. It asks for so much, yet forgives so little. It is actually so casual that it's hardcore."

The usual..Google, Wikipedia, imdb, personal awareness of old faces in new shows...

Rockin' Shan is up there with Ashna, Katie and Pat. :( I have seen her in something semi-recently & her full name is Shandra, but.. internets dry.

Remember the Show "Ready or not?" .. After it was cancelled, we saw the girl who played "Busy" working at a Roots Store @ Yorkdale. That was a long time ago though.

This thread sure brings back some memories.

PJ Jen is not PJ Katie nor PJ Jazzy Jan and definately not Jennifer Aniston LOL - those are four different people.

PJ Jen did go on to host some Saturday morning block on CTV after she left YTV. PJ Katie changed her on-air name to Jen afterwards. I remember she stated on tv once that when she came to YTV, there was already a PJ Jen so she used her middle name (Katie). Katie was also the one that did PJ Katie's Farm.

Liza who used to co-host V&A is now on Breakfast Television. This has been mentioned a couple of times on BT. I think they even showed a clip of her once LOL. Christa, the brunette, I think she hosted V&A before Liza, went on to broadcast the weather for the Weather Network then she disappeared. She was the co-host when I was on the show along with those two twin guys and Nick.
