noone can predict the future but from what i read it seems likely to return.

apparently it had really good numbers for the channel averaging something like 800k (which normally wouldn't be that great but it seems ok for that channel) and even remaining steady when the free period ended, so i can't see a reason for it not to.

I think it'll almost certainly return. I've even read rumours that it's coming back later this year once BBUS has finished. (Though I don't see that happening really..)

It's almost guaranteed. Apparently the ratings grew, even after the free preview for viewers!

800,000 is actually pretty good - even for a TV show on Canadian conventional TV. Looking at most weeks over the season, a 800k audience would put BBCA in the top 50 programs - impressive for a cable show on a pay to view station...

yeah, from the few articles i read on the topic the executives in charge seemed very happy with the numbers and the attention it was getting from social media and stuff.

i'm pretty sure that it's going to return for a season 2.

while i appreciate even having live feed and it being free i still hope they can do a better job with it overall, at the beginning it was great when they barely cut off the feeds from cursing and stuff but then they slowly started to block out every little thing and feeds were down for good stuff like the spin the bottle night, missing topaz go off on liza, the topaz twist instant eviction week, etc.

i don't like how they started to prioritize the main show and take the feeds off so there wasn't spoilers.

that being said, i'd definitely watch a second season.

If it does come back I hope they cut out most of the twists.

I heard from a blogger that they thinking about doing it twice a year now because the show was so successful. Slices only successful show ever. Rumour says they wanna do it after the BBUS 15 one.

Actually, Slice has another very successful original programme on its schedule: The Real Housewives of Vancouver.

Yay.
Though hopefully they'll be less desperate this time to make it eventful. I mean it was like they daren't let it progress naturally and risk it being boring.

I just saw this flash up on my fb wall. Sounds interesting, but we would need to find a vpn to watch or have a nice person that would stream for us like they did for BB.

Are you ready for this? The producers of Big Brother are bringing you, Summer Camp, a brand new reality series which sends 16 adults back to summer camp!

Tune in to the series premiere Friday July 19th at 9pm ET!

More info about Summer Camp on Slice starting on the 19th July. The Slice website has very little information about this show at the moment and I have no idea if they will offer any streaming. If anyone finds anything out, can you post it to me please.

This site has a fair bit of information about and who the contestants will be.
