ET Canada is hosted by longtime Global Toronto entertainment host Cheryl Hickey. Reporters associated with the program include Roz Weston, Sangita Patel, Matte Babel, Paul McGuire, and Carlos Bustamante.
The show was nominated for a Gemini Award in the best general interest series category in 2006.
The show has also added three spin-off shows and an annual special. ET Canada: Behind the Scenes gives viewers a peek behind the curtain, showcasing the team behind the brand. There have been two installments to date, the first highlighting the Toronto International Film Festival, debuted in October 2011. The second brought fans to the Grammy Awards, and documented the last minute-changes to the live red carpet show, in the wake of Whitney Houston's shocking sudden death.
ET Canada: Conversations highlights major international stars in extended long form interviews. The premiere episode featured Michael Bublé and aired in December 2011. Since then, One Direction, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Nickelback, Kylie Minogue, and Carrie Underwood have all been subjects.
From 2008 through 2015, Global also produced coverage of New Year's Eve festivities from Queen Victoria Park and the Skylon Tower in Niagara Falls, Ontario, co-branded as the ET Canada New Year's Eve Bash. The special was previously a local broadcast on Hamilton's CHCH prior to its sale to Channel Zero, but was expanded and re-positioned as a nationally focused broadcast on Global with more prominent performers. The last telecast aired in 2015.
In June 2016, the show began infrequent additional live episodes on Facebook. On September 12, 2016 ET Canada Live began its daily broadcast online and on Global. Similar to Access Hollywood Live and TMZ Live, the show is shot during the afternoon in-studio and features viewer interaction.
