Executive producer David Eilenberg says the CBS reality show, premiering Tuesday, is not the kind of show you wait to binge-watch or watch on DVR -- it has to be viewed in real time. "What's interesting about Love Island, in relation to how it interfaces with the sheer volume of Peak TV, is that, especially in the U.K., it's spoken to that very evident desire to have mass experiences that people can have collective dialogue around," says Eilenberg. "It's funny: If you take the mass of Peak TV at face value, experiences like Love Island or Game of Thrones should not be able to exist because the notion is that audiences have become so niche and so segregated from one another that communal experiences almost become impossible to engender. But, actually, what shows like Love Island prove is that when you are able to gather people in that way, the experience is more potent than ever. So it's a very high bar for us to set for ourselves in the U.S. in a first season of a show. But that really is what it has become in the U.K. and part of what's made it an appealing format."
