Whether you've watched Love Island USA for years, or you just decided to tune in to Season 6 because Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix joined as the new host, the show is a wild ride. Unlike other dating shows on streaming platforms and on television, Love Island USA airs multiple days per week on Peacock. It's a lot to keep up with, and if you're new around here, you're going to need to remember how to watch Love Island USA and keep up with the drama.

How can you watch 'Love Island USA'?

Love Island USA airs nearly exclusively on Peacock. You can watch new episodes on the streaming platform on Thursdays through Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST. However, the season premiere is also available to watch on Bravo. Since Bravo and Peacock both fall under the NBC Universal umbrella, it makes sense for Love Island USA to have a home on both the streaming platform and the television cable network.

What days does 'Love Island USA' air on Peacock and Bravo?

You can watch new episodes on Peacock six days per week after its initial premiere week. There's even an after-show called Love Island Aftersun, which premieres on Peacock on Saturdays. What better way to get an extra dose of the drama than to tune in to dive into the season's juiciest moments and whatever tea was spilled in the episodes that aired each week?

The first episode of Love Island USA airs on Bravo each season too. However, because the series airs multiple days per week on Peacock, it's not realistic for Bravo to also air every new episode. Though you can watch previous Love Island USA episodes on Peacock after they are, so that's something.

Viewers get to vote for their favorite couples at the 'Love Island USA' villa.

Unlike other reality dating shows, Love Island USA happens in real time. Well, sort of. Viewers get to vote for their favorite couples throughout each season as the episodes progress. The couples with the least amount of fan votes are forced to leave the villa. But couples often change, since "bombshells" are also introduced throughout each season as new singles arrive on the scene.

In some ways, Love Island USA is similar to other dating shows filmed in tropical locations with sexy singles. But, from the audience participation to the amount of days per week it airs, the series sets itself apart from many dating shows.

Watch Love Island USA on Thursdays through Tuesdays on Peacock at 9 p.m. EST.
