Season 1 of Bravo’s original drama series ‘Carter’, starring Jerry O’Connell, is set to join CTV’s summer schedule, Tuesdays at 9pm ET, beginning July 24th.

Final Numeris data indicated a combined audience of nearly 700,000 viewers for its series premiere on Bravo. The one-hour series drew an initial audience of 211,300 total viewers for its series premiere on Tuesday, May 15 on Bravo, with an additional 261,200 total viewers tuning in for the Saturday night repeat airing on Saturday, May 19 at 8 p.m. ET.

With five airings of the premiere episode on Bravo, ‘Carter’ reached more than 1.1 million viewers in its initial week and currently ranks as a Top 5 series with total viewers this broadcast year on Bravo. ‘Carter’ will stream exclusively on CraveTV following its broadcast run on Bravo

‘Carter’ is currently airing on Sony Pictures Television Networks platforms in Latin America, Central Europe, and Russia and has become a key utility player driving video starts in on-demand environments and impressive ratings growth on linear channels. For example, on Sony’s AXN networks in Central Europe, the series has reached over 3.5 million viewers and has been a big success in Poland.



‘Carter’ will debut on UKTV’s Alibi on June 13 and on SPT Networks in Spain and Portugal later this summer.

In an all-new episode, “Harley’s Got a Gun” (tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo), ‘Carter’ wants to learn how to use a gun and makes his housekeeper, Dot, give him shooting lessons. When they discover the body of a partner in a tech startup that was about to be sold for millions, everyone at the company becomes a suspect. Harley learns there’s still a big difference between himself and a trained police officer.

‘Carter’ follows Harley Carter the star of America’s top procedural TV show. When the years in the limelight and an endless blur of parties, premieres, and 16-hour workdays lead to a public humiliation on a red carpet, Harley returns to his small hometown in Canada to recharge. But a real-life murder case forces Harley to prove to the world – and himself – that he doesn’t just play a detective on television. ‘Carter’ also stars Sydney Poitier Heartsong as no-nonsense police veteran Sam Shaw and as street-wise, coffee truck owner Dave Leigh, Harley’s childhood friends.
