CTV’s Super Sunday: Nip/Tuck Sews Up Coveted Post Super Bowl Broadcast, Feb. 3
–Season 5 of audience favourite moves to Friday night timeslot from February 8th —

It’s a new season in a new area code. CTV announced today that Season 5 of the “cutting-edge” drama series Nip/Tuck will get the MVP treatment when it premieres immediately following CTV’s broadcast of Super Bowl XLII on Sunday, Feb. 3 (at approximately 10:15 ET; west of Ontario at 10 p.m.). It all adds up to a Super Sunday on CTV, which concludes its record-breaking, inaugural broadcast of the NFL on CTV with Super Bowl XLII, live from Phoenix, Arizona. CTV’s Super Sunday begins with pre-game coverage starting at 12 noon ET and ends with the conclusion of the Nip/Tuck season premiere, in which Doctors McNamara and Troy relocate to Hollywood. Nip/Tuck then moves into its regular Fridays at 10 p.m. ET time-slot beginning Feb. 8. Visit CTV.ca to confirm local listings.

CTV also announced today that, once again, Nip/Tuck will be available for free, on demand, on The CTV Broadband Network at CTV.ca. New episodes will become available the morning following their broadcast premiere.

Nip/Tuck is one of the most-watched, original scripted series on basic cable in the United States. Last October, Nip/Tuck’s Season 5 premiere in the U.S. outpaced its broadcast competition to become the most-watched program of the night overall among A18-34 and No. 2 among total viewers, just behind House. Season 5 on F/X continues to deliver younger viewers, rivaling conventional broadcasters as the #2 series in its timeslot for viewers, women and men aged 18-34. The series’ minor surgery involving its change of locale in Season 5 has also resulted in critical acclaim. “Could this possibly be the greatest season of Nip/Tuck?” asked Entertainment Weekly, while TV Guide declared that “Nip/Tuck has returned to its twisted, graphic glory.”

Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and Christian Troy (Julian McMahon), two plastic surgeons, close friends and business partners who own an overwhelmingly successful plastic surgery practice, attempt to bring inner peace and visceral contentment to their patients through external cosmetic procedures.

Although their clients aspire to cover up their pain, it is the surgeons who truly wear the masks of anguish and unhappiness, sadness and disillusionment. At midlife, the doctors question the prosperity that has brought them so much – and has offered so little. Having relocated their business to Los Angeles, Sean and Christian struggle for success in a city where they are professionally unknown, and where residents yearn to become someone else.

In Season 5, following his divorce from Julia (Joely Richardson), Sean sells his half of McNamara/Troy and departs for Los Angeles. Having ended his engagement, Christian soon follows, thus relocating McNamara/Troy to the West Coast. Dr. Liz Cruz (Roma Maffia) also joins the new McNamara/Troy practice, looking for a fresh start as she recovers physically and emotionally from past loves. Now living in New York with daughter Annie (recurring guest star Kelsey Lynn Batelaan) and baby Conor, Julia visits Sean and Christian in Los Angeles, bringing a new female love with her. Matt McNamara (John Hensley) and Kimber Henry (Kelly Carlson), who wed last season, also descend on Los Angeles, shrouded in the anguish of addiction and with a baby daughter in tow.

Season 5 of Nip/Tuck features an exceptional line-up of guest stars including Oliver Platt, Lauren Hutton, Bradley Cooper, Paula Marshall, Portia de Rossi, Jennifer Coolidge, Craig Bierko, Daphne Zuniga, Tia Carrere and John Schneider. Rosie O’Donnell also guest stars, reprising her Season 4 role as lottery winner Dawn Budge, along with Leslie Grossman, who reprises her Season 1 role as former patient Bliss Berger.

Winner of the 2005 Golden Globe Award for Best Television Drama, Nip/Tuck was created by Ryan Murphy (Popular, Running with Scissors), who executive produces the series with Michael M. Robin (The Closer, Popular, NYPD Blue, L.A. Law), Lyn Greene and Richard Levine. Nip/Tuck is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company in association with Warner Bros. Television.
