HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/10/12 --

Editor's Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

Whether you are head over heels, recently jilted or stubbornly single, romance breeds laughter this Valentine's Day on Canada's well-loved comedy show, This Hour Has 22 Minutes.

The 22 Minutes February 14 episode takes a light-hearted look at sappy sentiment with "Things We Hate About Valentine's Day" and with Shaun Majumder discovering how to express love at Hallmark's Canadian headquarters.

Watch Betty Hope (Cathy Jones) set fear into the hearts of significant exs in the Panic Room. And even impromptu Valentine's engagements take a hit when the Rock Block is revealed over a romantic dinner.

Also in the February 14 episode the ever-popular Rex Murphy (Mark Critch) shares his heartfelt sentiments around the Queen's proposed Diamond Jubilee celebration. And 22 Minutes parodies the new hit TV series "Smash", with Canada's equivalent, "Grant".

Dine out Monday the 13th and skip the Valentine's Day crowds so you can stay home on February 14 to share laughs with your sweetheart during this all-new 22 Minutes episode.

This Hour Has 22 Minutes airs Tuesdays, 8:30 pm (9:00 pm in Newfoundland) on CBC Television. Follow the show on or twitter @22_minutes.
