Big Brother has been a CBS summer staple for a long time, and although the network runs some scripted programming during the warmer months, it has decided to really beef up its reality TV series offerings. Enter the Love Island TV show which airs five nights a week. Is this a heaven-made match for the Tiffany Network audience? Will Love Island be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A CBS dating reality TV show, Love Island is based on the British series of the same name. Arielle Vandenberg hosts the matchmaking program, which unfolds on a tropical island, where single “Islanders” meet and romance each other, hoping to form a relationship. “Islanders” who don’t manage to become part of a couple are at risk for elimination. From time to time, the show introduces new people to the mix to shake things up. The two contestants who are still part of a couple at the season’s end win the game and the chance to leave with both love and a cash prize.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly on the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
8/8 update: You can see the latest night’s ratings in context.
Note: If you’re not seeing the updated chart, please try reloading the page or view it here.
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you like the Love Island TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season on CBS?
*8/1/19 update: CBS has renewed the Love Island TV show for a second season.
Please cancel Love Island. The program is next to porn. Bring back Hawaii 50 more Ncis or more family comedy.
Five days a week was, like, just, like, overkill. By the last week, like, I couldn’t even, like, watch anymore. And, like, at the end of the day, like, I have no idea of, like, the outcome and don’t, like, even care, at the end of the day. I, like, won’t be getting, like, sucked into this hot mess again, like, next season, at the end of the day.
I won’t watch again. Boring, and the announcer was so annoying!
No longer watch CBS sorry CBS. What a waste TV time good reason to learn how to play chess again
I agree with John. I’ve found other shows I want to watch – not Love Island. Now I don’t turn in to Big Brothers as I used to. CBS is usually better than this. Now you lost me.
Thank you CBS for forcing me to surf the channels. In doing that I found out that there are far better than this. I plan on staying with some of them. Thank you CBS
This show is going to get cancelled soooo very hard. It’s being beat consistently by reruns and hasn’t topped 0.5 in demo since it’s premiere. These numbers are atrocious and most definitely the last thing CBS expected when they acquired the show after it’s success abroad.
Who knew that taking something that is uncensored and free-spirited in the UK and applying America’s puritanical broadcasting standards to it would suck all the fun out of things, WHO KNEW!
I really enjoyed it and hope it is renewed
Not that great. Going to other channels for same time shows.
Cancel this pathetic mess.
Maybe there would be more interest if the prospective cast members were interviewed first to see if their vocabulary was large enough to speak a full sentence without using the word “like”
I tried to give it a chance. I call it “The like like like Love like like like Island like like like show.”
Was just about to post that. Where do they find these inarticulate people?Like, like like..ya know, like….literally….like. Screams running away.
More dating/relationship garbage, phony as a football bat. Hope it (and the whole genre) tanks soon !
Ridiculous soft-core porn.
What a great show. I hope CBS renews Love Island for a second season and beyond.
You’re trying to be funny ain’t ya Dave
