Oh Brother, More Big Brother Coming

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Renewals,

Big Brother logoDespite lackluster ratings this winter, CBS has opted to run another edition of this upcoming summer. Although a start date has not yet been announced, it’s quite possible we’ll be seeing back-to-back installments of the reality show.

The voyeuristic program has been a staple on the Eye network’s summer schedule since 2000.  Thanks to the writers’ strike, a special season was ordered and began airing on February 12th.  Although the show has seen moderate success during the less crowded television calendar, it has experienced a large ratings hit during the colder months.  A lot of that blame goes to .

Big Brother‘s first eight seasons have primarily aired between July and September.

Big Brother 9: Ryan Nominates Two For Eviction

Posted by Jacci Lewis Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Editorial, News,

Big Brother 9Mr. Nice Guy Ryan finds himself holding all the cards in the house, at least for a couple of days.

Last night, the 27-year-old college student from Ohio nominated first-timer Chelsia and previously evicted, then resurrected Sharon for eviction this coming Wednesday.

That was about the only interesting revelation in this particular episode. Again, I question why this show needs to be on three nights a week. Surely, with the writer’s strike over could come up with something better for their prime-time line-up?

Big Brother 9 Shocker: Allison Evicted, Ryan Now Head of Household

Posted by Jacci Lewis Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Showtime, Editorial, News,

BB9 Allison evicted Ryan HOHJust when it looked like this painful season of would dwindle away into ratings obscurity, the game got a major jolt of energy tonight: There will be no more couples.  It is now every man and woman for themselves.

The big headline of the night is that Allison was evicted and Ryan, her former partner, is now Head of Household. We were told yesterday that the house guests were to expect to hear a siren sometime today. When that siren went off, all of the house guests were to rush to the living room to hear the “important game-changing announcement.” Tonight, that siren went off just after Allison and Ryan were evicted as a couple. In the end, Allison, the drug company salesperson from Boston, went home and Ryan is now in charge of the house. We also learned that America gets to vote on which already evicted house guest (Jacob, Jen, Parker, Amanda, Alex or Allison) will get a second chance in the Big Brother house. You can vote for that as we speak on CBS.com.
