This half hour comedy series featured Greg Thomey as small-town talk show host Ernie Post. Along with his sidekick, Charles the Chef (Richard Donat), Ernie welcomed guests to explore a number of themes that affected people’s daily lives. He also dispensed useful tips in a collection of self-directed, dramatized, how-to vignettes. Salter Street Films produced the series in association with the CBC.

Thomey was a featured cast member on This Hour Has 22 Minutes and this was his first solo project. Most of the production team from This Hour, including the writers, worked on this show. Only six episodes were broadcast.
