    First and GO MASTERCHEF

  • chris

    BB should do better on eviction night…

  • Rebecca

    Really enjoyed HTL’s whole run….wish it could come back with more episodes. Some were better than others, but on the whole I liked it. I hope Elizabeth Perkins can be cast in another comedy some time soon.

  • HalCapone

    Can someone just nudge Gordon Ramsey into the Fryer—he is so obnoxious and omnipresent.

  • Steve

    Big Brother continues to dominate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    CBS got it right with their reality programming: Survivor, Amazing Race and Big Brother all still going strong.

  • Joel

    I love Big Brother!!! Too bad I wont be able to watch it that much since I’ll be working nights :(
    I can always watch it on demand or online thought but it wont be the same…

  • Michael

    Not great for Big Brother, but decent. Hopefully, it won’t decline from here on out. I liked the new MVP twist.

  • platypus Perry

    Master Chef doing good as usual for FOX.

    Criminal Minds does much better at 10 then it Does at 9 in repeats. Big Brother still doing good.

    Surprised Arrow didn’t maintain it’s 0.4. Nice total viewers though. Both are still solud for the CW as usual!

    Watched Master Chef for the first time last night-not looking to watch it -just came across it-not bad-but like all reality TV they have to have that one obnoxious contestant-and sure enough the big girl is it (can’t remember her name). I won’t be watching again I don’t think.

  • Nick

    If Big Brother continues to get ratings like this (and for the last 15 years, it has), it will continue to be a summer staple for many, many years to come.

    Kudos to CBS for keeping it fresh. With no returning contestants and a fantastic twist in the game, this season is looking to be one of the best of the series.

  • Alan M.

    People moaning about Big Brother’s ratings are delusional.

    First of all, those ratings are just FINE for a summer show in its 14th season. Not only that, but can you imagine how cheap that show is to produce?

    It also started at least a week earlier than usual. Lots of people don’t even look out for it to be on until after the July 4 weekend.

    BB may be getting old and saggy but it’s a safe investment for several more summers to come.

  • Dan

    Fo MasterChef!!!

  • K


    Her name is Krissy. She readily admitted on an episode she is there for her child and could care less if the other contestants like her.

  • Michael

    Masterchef fans,

    Is it just me or the contestant Savannah on the show has never been seen, before yesterday’s episode? O.o

  • beached

    You can tell easily who’s going to be there at the end of Masterchef. Always one fat unlikeable chick in the cast who’ll be there just because people hate her.

  • Rob R

    It’s just not summer without Big Brother.

  • CBSviewer

    I watched Big Brother for the first time last night and I think I will never watch it again. All the candidate look so snooty (except McCrae and Spencer). I know it’s been on for 15 years and it gets good ratings but it’s not the kind of Show I like !

  • Josh


    %100 agreed!

  • Derek

    Big Brother is one of my favorite things of the year. It makes my summer. This year, I’m hoping Candice, Kaitlin and Nick do well.

  • Ted Craig


    She’s been seen, but not heard. That seems like an attempt by the producers to make us care about her when she either gets booted or makes it into the top five.

    I’m not a HTLWYP fan, but Super Fun Night better be damn good or ABC made a mistake. A little retooling (i.e. dump the ex-husband) and this might have had a wider audience.
