Big Brother 11: Will There Be A Winter Season Again? TV Guide Thinks So

When Big Brother showed up last winter I was ecstatic. The WGA Strike was causing a heavy TV slump and the idea of my favorite summer show turning up during the coldest season was welcome news. Now with the conclusion of the tenth season, back to its summer appearance, the question is raised: will there be another winter BB event with Big Brother 11?

My first guess: no, there won’t be. I love Big Brother as much as the next loyal viewer, but even with all my biased optimism I have to admit that I just don’t see it happening. Stars aligned last winter to bring BB9 to the table and I don’t see it happening again. With television back in full swing there won’t be the gap of new programming to fill anymore. No vacancies means no winter Big Brother 11.

Even back before BB10 got started Allison Grodner, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, said that Big Brother was a summer event and we should not expect the chance to make snow angels as we await PoV news. Nuts. But wait! (Or is that, “but first” ?)

TV Guide is already listing Big Brother 11 as part of its “Fall Preview”. Oh yes, my friends, it’s there with Julie Chen’s smiling mugshot and all (see above). So what does that really mean? Nothing. It could be that TV Guide is simply being ready for anything and so likewise, all of us here at Big Brother Network (me), will be doing the same.

I’ll be keeping an eye out and my thumb on the Big Brother 11 pulse, listening for any news. Stay tuned to the site and I’ll keep you posted. Here’s to hoping for more BB sooner than later!

  1. I attempted to watch BB9, but after watching one and a half of the first two shows, I dropped it as not watchable.

  2. you have to get to know the people inside the house to really enjoy the show, the more you watch the more you will like it.

  3. I was so looking forward to seeing it this winter as well, but its not looking likely. I thank TV Guide for getting my hopes up…lol

  4. yeah, it does say on the after dark show see ya next summer, but, if you ever watched it before, it says that every year in the same tone, so my guess is that is was recorded previously and it is just aired at the end of the year, how much can really change on that. but once again, i can’t wait to see it.

  5. I recently just got cable & SATELLITE TV on my pc and set it up on my tv with RT cable from Radio Shack. Pretty amazing and now I dont need Comcast anymore. Just thought it would also be a good share and pass around to you guys.

  6. I also recently just got cable & satellite tv on my pc and set it up with RT cable from Radio Shack for $20. Pretty amazing and now I dont need Comcast anymore. Just thought it would also be a good share.


    PLEASE LET IT BE TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. I would like to see Big Brother on more than just once a year. I really love watching it and always look forward to it coming on.
