Brat’s entertainment: New CTV reality series kicks butt

Times have been firmed up for a couple of summer entries on CTV. Brat Camp, a new show about recalcitrant teens getting a kick in the butt, is part of the summer reality onslaught (see MIC May 26/05). It's based on the award-winning British series of the same name and will have a special two-hour preem at 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 13 after Canadian Idol. The six-part show chronicles out-of-control youth sent to wilderness school in an effort to straighten them out. It will then settle into a regular one-hour timeslot on Wednesday July 27 at 9 p.m.

Also in the wing(tip)s is So You Think You Can Dance, a 12-week companion to the hit series Dancing With the Stars. This search for America's best dancer debuts on CTV with a two-hour ep on Wednesday, July 20 at 8 p.m., before setting into a regular one-hour timeslot at the same time on July 27. As usual, CTV is shooting for a mass aud 18+ with both these shows.
