    D*mn it. Crossing lines is an awesome show. Stupid reality TV has made brains mush.

  • rgxx

    I’m tired of this BB crap…for crying out loud…are these peoples lives really that interesting?!

  • andy

    it’s fun silly entertainment :)

  • bob

    I absolutely love Big Brother and so glad that it is doing so well. CBS is a best in the Fall, Spring and Summer now. The people this season are beginning to become interesting. I just wonder who America will pick for the third houseguest on the block. And what will CBS do if the person that America choses is already on the block??????

  • Rob3008


    They announced on the live show last week that if the person voted by the public to be the third nominee is already on the block that they will just pick the person with the next highest votes.

  • Why Watch

    I can’t fathom why big Brother pulls in the ratings. Is it because their own lives are so miserable they need to watch other people with miserable lives to feel good about themselves. Wake up people, you are more real than reality TV people.

    Since when has Big Brother been about people’s lives? It’s a game, a very exciting and interesting game in fact.

  • joethehobo

    All of these people pissed at Big Brother’s ratings need to understand what they’re pissed about. The American Big Brother is a competition show in which ~15 houseguests enter a house for the summer with 1 person being voted out by their fellow competitors each week until the last 2 remain in which the evicted houseguests vote on which player played the better game, winning $500,000. It’s an incredibly cerebral and exciting premise and its 15 years on the air speaks for itself. Just please know the difference between the American version and the other versions, because the show for America is TOTALLY different. It’s like comparing American football to European football.

  • dman

    bb is a waste

  • Phil

    Axe Cop and High School USA will not last long!

  • Rick

    Crossing Lines is a great show and I think its so much better than Under the Dome in terms of acting and story .NBC should movie out of the Sunday Night Death time slot which is 10pm.

  • Rick

    And don’t compare Big Brothers ratings to True blood tv_viewer. Everyone in America has CBS. I bet only a quarter of the population has HBO
