After weeks of streaming their weekly episode and live eviction at 10PM ET followed by a midnight, yes midnight, Head of Household competition we’re now hearing from CBS that they’ll be repeating last week’s early 8PM ET airtime for the rest of the season.
Someone finally came to their senses that offering every HoH competition live on the Feeds isn’t too useful if it’s running at 2AM and now they’re preparing to shift everything up two hours. That new schedule puts the weekly episode at 8PM ET (5PM ET) with the live eviction around the 9PM ET mark followed by the Head of Household comp starting at 10PM ET. That time lines right up with the start time if we were watching a regular summer season endurance comp.
This change in the BBOTT schedule was confirmed by CBS to be the official time each Wednesday night for the rest of the season. Of course there’s not much of the season left, but it’s still a welcome change even with its unfortunate Survivor overlap.
Now if you’ve been missing this season of Big Brother OTT then you’ve really been missing it. This has been a fantastic season for the series and I’m sorry it didn’t line the summer’s larger audience but it’s still great to be reminded that Big Brother can still be awesome when the stars align.
It’s not too late to catch up on the season and see how it all works out. We started with 13 HGs and tonight we’ll be down to just 5 left as we head toward the December 1st season finale.
