OneXOne broadcast
  • The 2007 OneXOne event will be broadcast on Canadian television station CTV on Saturday night (29 December) - details here.

    One X One Gala: 8 p.m., CTV. Matt Damon hosts this fundraiser filmed in Toronto in September. The star-studded event honoured luminaries who have helped make the world a better place for children. This year's award recipients included Richard Gere, Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, supermodel Petra Nemcova, National Chief Phil Fontaine and entertainer Wyclef Jean. Jean also performed at the gala, along with Shakira, the African Children's Choir and prodigy Nikki Yanofsky. This was the second consecutive year Damon hosted the event in Toronto.

  • A photo of Matt and Lucy with Robert Downey Jr and his wife Susan in Miami is at EvilBeetGossip. More photos are available here or at Splash News Online.

    OneXOne

    I really hope it will air, because I checked the TV listings and it has football in that timeslot. And while I was watching the news, they said they're airing football in that timeslot with no mention of OneXOne.

    However, earlier in the week they showed commercials promoting the broadcast of the gala, so we'll see if they really keep their promise and air it.

    *Update* It didn't air... I hate CTV. They gave us false hope.

    Thanks for the information. They knew they were going to broadcast football (presumably), but still promoted the OneXOne event? Strange.

    That is so damn ridiculous because the CTV site has a page on the One x One Gala, stating it would indeed air on Saturday(http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/show/CTVShows/20071219/onexone_20071219/20071219). Perhaps we should all bombard CTV with angry emails (programming@ctv.ca), it's worked before (had an issue when they didn't air Alias on the regular time slot, they got back to me in a few days). If they don't air it on CTV maybe they'll air it on Star-TV.
