If you missed the premiere of one of the most controversial reality TV shows in years,
then you have another chance to catch the first episode of Kid Nation. CBS will be
broadcasting an encore presentation of Kid Nation on Saturday, Sept. 22
at 8:00 PM ET/PT.
Kid Nation met with mixed reaction from television critics. The Arizona Daily Star gave the show a gold star for “its light entertainment value and inventiveness.” On the other hand, the Detroit Free Press called Kid Nation “the Mini-Me of Survivor, minus the fun.”
In the ratings, Kid Nation actually did fairly well. The series premiered to an audience of 9.4 million viewers on Wednesday, winning its time period in Adults 18-49, children 2-11 and children 6-11. Kid Nation’s regular time period is Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS.
