It’s a quieter week for new and returning series, as both Canadians and Americans celebrate their countries. There are TV moments to discover, though, from CBC’s web series, Save Me, getting a television tryout to CBS burning off a couple of its failed sitcoms on Saturday night. There’s also the return of The Amazing Race Canada. Happy viewing!

Save Me – 9 to 10pm (two episodes) on CBC – Series Premiere
This irreverent CBC web series that seeks to find the funny in 911 callers now seeks a broader audience on the network. It follows Toronto paramedics through their days of call after call, but through the eyes of the people who make those sometimes absurd calls. It makes sense that there would also be moments of drama and even romance, but Save Me mines the dark humour that occasionally finds its way into our world’s darker corners.
