In this fast-paced pop culture world, industry respect and admiration is overrated! Bring on the robots and cleavage! TELETOON at Night‘s The Fannies returns as the ultimate awards season underdog, redefining “contender” for a lifetime. Hosted by “Fearless” Fred Kennedy (102.1 the Edge in Toronto), the show is taped in front of a live audience, and hands out awards for what really matters; robots, cleavage, man bums, hair and swords. The Fannies, now in its fourth edition, air on Thursday, February 27, starting at 9 p.m. ET/PT during TELETOON at Night’s Fred at Night programming block.
“There is a definite need for rewarding people who bring good man bums and robot drama to our screens. Thankfully, we recognize this and The Fannies are coming back to fill that void in your life. Three hours of cleavage chatter and hair scrutiny can’t go wrong, can it?” said Fred Kennedy, Host of The Fannies on TELETOON at Night.
