The television series is currently in its second season and airs on Wednesday nights at 8:00 p.m. If you’ve never seen the show before, you’re missing out, but here’s a sneak peak at Mr. D’s impeccable grading process.
Dee has also made a name for himself in a segment of the popular Canadian sports channel, The Score, with his recurring segment Gerry Dee: Sports Reporter. Dee is hilarious in his interviews with the biggest figures in sports like Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky.
