    I hate sumner broadcast TV.

    Anyway, looks like TBBT is staying put at 8pm this new season.

  • John

    So excited for Big Brother!

    Interesting that the start date is about a week later that usual.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Like a bad penny, shows like “Big Brother” keep coming back…coming back…etc.

    Oh…I caught an episode of TBBT. Surely, no one over the age of 16 watches this…am I right? They should rename it “Nerd Central.”

  • Rod

    BB is a good show as long as the producers do not try to manipulate end results. They should also stop bringing back Losers who were not popular i.e. Jessie, etc., this does absolutely nothing for the show unless they intend to bring it to a screeching halt and feed the bloggers.

  • Melanie

    Looking forward to another season of Big Brother. Should be fun.

  • edward

    BB is back ready for this season have been watching this show since I was 13 years old love it!!

  • Avery

    In the Summertime, The Address is CBS!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @edward: How old are you now?

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Avery: Here at the REAL Jersey Shore (NOT the TV shows), “In The Summertime, The Address is The Beach!”

  • The Mike Factor

    Looking forward to Big Brother! They can keep their show about dogs, and the one with the four-legged creatures in the city too (see what I did there?)

  • joethehobo

    Big Brother!! I wonder why they’re starting a week later this year.

  • carole

    After the train wreck of BB last year. I won’t be watching again. The show was rigged for Rachel to win. I don’t even watch AR because she’s in the show. I can’t believe people can’t see how this is rigged for the one they want to win.
    Watch it close. Little foam on the lane w/their favorite. Little slime on the poles of the one they want to win. Shame Julie and husband.

  • Melanie

    @carole, I never thought about it that way, I was just glad Rachel won. I didn’t like any of the newbies because they all came in there butt-kissing the vets, but then turned on them and they couldn’t really play the game on their own I felt. They were very weak IMO and rode of the vets coattails for the majority of their time on the show. I wasn’t Rachel’s biggest fan though, couldn’t stand her the season before, however I was really wanting Jeff to win, but of course he got voted out by one of the newbies that turned on him.

  • RyanCanada

    i love Big Brother and Rookie Blue

  • Bob

    Big Brother is a great show….try and watch every episode. Sometimes that show gets wild. Thank God for CBS….Best network in the Fall, Spring and Summer. Can’t get better than CBS that is for sure.

  • RG-X


  • RG-X

    Obviously “BOB” works for CBS

  • boogke

    Love Big Brother and love Rachael! Go on Amazing Race!

    Maybe BB starts later because July 4th is on a Wednesday therefore the July 4th holiday weekend will include the Thursday the 5th that BB would normally start and they don’t want to start on a holiday Wednesday when viewership is low.

  • nadia

    CBS Is lot beter in the summertime! TBH!

  • Same old bb personalities

    It may get good ratings but do such terrible casting for houseguests especially for blacks and gays — its always the angry black person and the girly gay guy.
