This has yet to be confirmed by CBS, but with ratings through the roof who didn’t see it coming? New York Magazine’s TVMoJoe is reporting that CBS has renewed everyone’s favorite summer reality series for Big Brother 13! Joe Adalian tweeted the news earlier today but notes the news is still unofficial:
Meanwhile, #bigbrother renewed for S13. CBS just hasn’t told anyone… yet
So does this awesome news help soothe the wounds of a semi-deflating end to this season? I can’t wait for it to start all over next summer! What about you?
Thanks to I Hate Big Brother for the news tip!
Update: E!Online is running a poll for the best summer reality show and Big Brother is currently in 3rd place, ahead of The Bachelorette, but behind ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ and ‘Jersey Shore’! Come on, everyone, go here and vote for Big Brother as the best summer reality show evah!
Update 2: Big Brother is up to #2 in the poll now ahead of ‘Jersey Shore’ but still ~5% behind Kardashians so keep voting!
The Big Brother 12 HGs often wonder what America (and the rest of you out there!) thinks of them, but we don’t have to wonder any longer with our handy-dandy Big Brother popularity poll that’ll show us just where they stand.
Go ahead and pick your favorite Big Brother Houseguest for this week in the poll below. I’ll run this each week and we can keep track as HGs’ stock rises and falls. You can also check out where all the HGs ended up last week in the poll. Last week Lane barely eeked out Britney for the most popular at 29% while, once again, Hayden and Enzo came in last. What an exciting finale the two consistently least popular HGs will make. Hey Enzo, I’ve got a script for ya, it’s called “Damn You!”
Share your thoughts and tell us why you voted the way you did.
We’re almost to the Big Brother 12 finish line. The remaining four HGs watched the hours creep by on Monday with little game talk and mostly chit chat. The Veto Ceremony was skipped in lieu of making it part of the Wednesday episode where we’ll see the Veto comp, ceremony, eviction (of Britney), and the first round of the final HoH competition. The 3 rounds will complete on Thursday.
Big Brother 12 Live Feed Highlights – September 6, 2010:
No easy way to put this, live feeders. CBS calls the shots on when the live feed cameras are turned off and on in the Big Brother house every year and this season is no different. Due to what I believe to be the compressed television broadcast schedule of back to back Wednesday and Thursday episodes, CBS has ordered the live feeds to be blacked out until Wednesday night:
CBS production is blocking the live feeds, [but] SuperPass is providing special programming to subscribers during that time. The block will occur for an extended period of time starting tomorrow (Tuesday) morning Pacific Time.
Since there will be specially created and fun content featured on SuperPass, [viewers can] visit the Live Feeds and Live Shows pages for the most updated programming calendar.
I believe the feeds are being turned off so production can pre-record their Wednesday “live” episode which won’t really be live at all. They’ll be filming the Veto Ceremony, “live” eviction, and even possibly the first round of the 3-part final HoH competition. By keeping us out of the house via the feeds they’ll keep the suspense for finding out what happened and boosting their ratings.
Unfortunately I have no control over this situation, nor does RealNetworks, who delivers the live feeds. But what we can all do is register our complaints with CBS for their decision to block out their most dedicated Big Brother fans. Go here on CBS’ website for the feedback form and let them know your thoughts:
Thanks again for all your support this season and I’ll keep you posted on any updates to when we’ll have our live feeds back, but for now you can expect them to return Wednesday night following the east coast broadcast. Until then, we’ll always have the shower moments with Britney and Lane, separately of course!
Is it Big Brother 12 finale night yet? After the Brigade broke the news of their alliance to Britney over the weekend there was little to do other than wait for the inevitable and enjoy extended shower scenes with Britney. It’s like she’s competing for the Veto in there but instead we’re all the winners out here!
