It’s been a banner year for black-hearted fear mongers who enter 2018 with momentum that would make Satan himself shed a bloody, disease-filled tear of joy before his daily snack of souls. But with every winner comes a loser; for the side of good 2017 was almost as bad as those years where everyone got sick and died.

The best way to remedy a bad year besides buying a horse and riding it out into the wild to find a suitable cave to live in is to laugh hard enough that you cry but not so hard that your stomach explodes. That’s why we commissioned the modern-day jesters at The Beaverton to craft a televised special that hilariously audits everything that happened over the past twelve months.  

An event like this is way too big for premium cable so we’ve decided to give the nation access via CTV, which will air The Beaverton’s Year In Review: 2017, The Year That Sadly Was on December 31 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The timing should give you plenty of time to add the last few gears to the clock you’ve been working on all year that makes a big sighing noise once midnight strikes. Those who are loyal to the Comedy Network can check out it out on January 1 at 10 p.m. ET/PT then on the website the following day.

So as not to confuse anyone, we elected to stick with the same Beaverton team you know and love including anchors Emma Hunter and Miguel Rivas alongside correspondents Aisha Alfa, Dave Barclay, Laura Cilevitz, Donavon Stinson, and Marilla Wex. The special will revisit the most talked about topics of the year with newly recorded segments, listicles, and field reports. Here’s a peek at what’s in store:


  • Hosts Emma Hunter and Miguel Rivas weigh in with the Top 17, explosive news stories which include plenty of ‘TNT’, a.k.a., Trudeau and Trump.
  • The Beaverton Sports Network checks out the Top 10 sports stories of the year.
  • Miguel and Emma face off in an epic battle of good points, in 2017’s final Count/Counterpoint segment.
  • Season 2 highlights.

The show will then return to complete its second season on The Comedy Network on Wednesday Jan. 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
