MUST-WATCH FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 24
CTV: In the two-hour season premiere of LOVE ISLAND, airing Monday, Aug. 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, host Arielle Vandenberg and narrator Matthew Hoffman return with an all-new cast of quarantined sexy singles shooting in a sequestered “bubble” at the Cromwell, a Caesars Entertainment boutique hotel in Las Vegas. A group of single “Islanders” will come together in a stunning setting, ready to embark on a summer of love, friendships and, ultimately, relationships. Every few days, the Islanders must couple up – those who fail to find a partner to couple up with risk being dumped from the “island.” In addition to choosing their partners wisely, Islanders must also win the hearts of viewers who have the opportunity to shape events on screen and ultimately crown one lucky couple the winner, who will then have the chance to walk away with both love and the cash prize. Following the premiere, episodes will air this week on Tuesday, Aug. 25; Thursday, Aug. 27; Friday, Aug. 28; and Sunday, Aug. 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV.
