The Canadian version
of The People's Couch
was bad, but at least it featured Rookie Blue
(which is a Shaw Media
[The People's Couch Canada S1 Episode 1 - free stream]
The American version expanded to an hour, but the Canadian version is only 30 minutes (including commercials).
Six shows (all reality-tv crap, other than Rookie Blue
) were covered in the first episode, but I only paid close attention to the Rookie Blue
and Keeping Up With the Kardashians
Since I don't find these Canadian couch families/friends to be that interesting or funny, I'm only curious to see what shows will be featured each week.
The American version's first season also had some boring couch families/friends, but the Canadian version seems to only
have boring couch participants. I'd replace them all (if there is a second season), and also fix the annoying editing (quick and jarring; though it could be because the couch folks have nothing original or funny to say).
Edit: Only Six (not 7) shows were featured ... I quickly checked the Bravo.ca stream.
