CBS Says Big Brother 16 In Summer 2014

Julie Chen - Big BrotherCBS will premiere Big Brother 16 next year starting in the summer of 2014. Despite controversy the long-running reality TV series delivered on its promise of drama for viewers and strong ratings for the network.

As is typical of Big Brother renewals, the announcement was not made official until near the end of the previous season. According to insiders, the news was revealed internally during the series’ 500th episode milestone celebration.

An uptick in past Houseguests’ strong public support of the show on Twitter became apparent late in the season and was rumored to have been part of a campaign to put a positive spin on a sour season. Whether CBS had any actual concerns or doubts about the series returning have been put to rest now with the series’ renewal for BB16.

While no specific date has been confirmed for the Big Brother 16 premiere, I wouldn’t be surprised to see another attempt of the extended season like we had this year with a June launch. The extra two weeks were definitely noticed as things seemed to drag on, but with the right cast and action on the Feeds it’d be a great opportunity.

Casting has opened its online application process with in-person casting events expected again in the spring. Most seasons have seen those events run from April to May. We’ll keep an eye out for dates and locations to be announced in early 2014.

While we wait for the new season next summer we can enjoy the return of Big Brother Canada starting early next year. BBCAN’s first season was excellent, so let’s hope for a repeat success from our friends to the north.

  1. Watching BBAustralia, UK and even BB Canada BB USA is poop. BB USA just seems so fake. The evictions of BB USA are so not exciting, our tv shows sucked and are to scripted.

  2. I am with David Hinsdale, and will repeat exactly what he said on Facebook, “They had better find someone new to screen and choose the participants. This year was the worst cast and worst BB ever!” David is exactly right, the quality and character of this last season was questionable and don’t tell me this was the best you could do. To hell with the dramatics, because as we saw this year, the dramatics were vicious, mean, cruel and not typical of the age groups represented, just the people who were cast were of questionable character. And some got away with it because Julie chose not to let vicious Amanda know how disliked she was by America. And the cowardly McCrae caving to Amanda in-house was disgusting; poor quality male behavior. Unfortunately, the good people were eliminated and the “less-than-stellar” people remained and won–too bad! Nothing for young adults to be watching, and CBS did a horrible job with BB last season. I will watch with trepidation next season to see if they continue to lower their standards! It is rather easy to change channels.

  3. Save All Stars for season 20, but bring back some of the more memorable personalities for this season. Maybe the most popular to not make jury or something.

    And no stupid twists that can lead to the game seeming unfair. May the best win

  4. I not only would like to see America do the voting again, but would like to see them do away with the HOH which goes straight to their heads. Watch BBAU they survive without the HOH. Define yourselves as yourself. Being HOH does not do that.

  5. Interview with Nick and GM:

    • Capt, I watched the interview and thought it was quite sad. I hope Nick and GM learned a valuable lesson from this……not all attention is worth having. The interviewer sat them up. He was trying to get GM to say more racist stuff and was trying to (he actually did) show that Nick is just a good looking loser who might even be gay. I’m not surprised that GM continued with the interview and continued to buy what he was selling. However, I am shocked that Nick participated (even though someone had muted his voice) for as long as he did. Anyway, this is what happens when you have two fame whores, trying to become famous by any means necessary. It is my opinion that Nick is with GM to make money and that’s about it. Somebody needs to tell both of them that their 90 days of fame is over and that they both need to go find real jobs.

  6. BB15 was a joke hope they do well in 16. Now BBCAN is airing 3 months the first season was amazing. There’s a whole new house for this season not just dressed different it’s a hole new one.

  7. Recently I was REALLY low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this!!! – 460h
