CBS has scheduled a special episode of Big Brother 19 for this Friday, August 18th at 8/7c as we first reported early last week before the CBS announcement. A bonus show sounds good, right? Well not when it kills your Feeds fun.
So far CBS has offered no details as to the purpose or content of this week’s extra showing on Friday night, but Executive Producer did tell us in our weekly interview, “there will definitely be surprises and a special guest.” That’s all we’ve got to go on.
Per a confirmation from CBS, starting on Thursday evening the Big Brother 19 Live Feeds will be taken down before the live show, per the usual routine, but will then remain off until after the bonus Friday night episode airs out west.
That means when the Double Eviction is over instead of us running to watch the Live Feeds we’ll be stuck waiting about 28 hours until the Feeds return on Friday around 9PM PT (12AM ET). Awful.
Looking back at last year there was a useless clip show montage episode at this same point in August featuring Ziggy Marley who performed for the HGs in the backyard to a carnival setting. And of course Jessie was there too because why not.
That season the episode was filmed earlier in the week and then Paulie had to be carefully edited out of the scenes since he had been evicted the night before it aired. CBS apparently likes to pretend their viewers are fools and can’t understand when things are live or not.
Perhaps to avoid another out-of-timeline event this season they came up with a different plan. Film the content after the same week’s eviction. Well that’s a terrible idea.
Get ready to miss some important Feeds this week for what could end up being a painful, throw away clip show. What a waste. But hey, CBS is giving away a 1-Month Free Trial with a promo code (BB19SALE) that expires this Thursday night. Brilliant timing…
