After the radio half-hour comedy series The Debaters had played on CBC Radio One for five years, several episodes broadcast during 2011 were also taped for television exposure during the hockey playoffs.  Then on June 8th 2011, the CBC announced that a Debaters television series would be scheduled on the network effective Wednesday September 14th.

 The Debaters’ format provided for two 15-minute segments, in each of which two comedians would debate a given subject, and the audience would be called on to declare a winner by their votes.

 In early 2012 the CBC announced that the series would not be in their Fall 2012 schedule.
