'Big Brother' Renewed - BB17 & BB18 Are A Go!


Right before the Big Brother 16 Finale, CBS announced it had renewed 'Big Brother' for 2 more additional seasons, that means Big Brother 17 & Big Brother 18 are a go! 



PRESS RELEASE:
CBS.com - CBS has renewed the summer reality hit BIG BROTHER for its 17th and 18th editions for broadcast in summer 2015 and 2016. The series is hosted by Julie Chen. 
Since premiering on CBS in the summer of 2000, BIG BROTHER has consistently finished among the summer’s top-rated series in young demographics. This summer’s edition is up +2% in viewers (7.56m from 7.39m) and +4% in adults 18-49 (2.7/09 from 2.6/08), while averaging 3.1/09 in adults 25-54 and 1.9/08 in adults 18-34. All three weekly broadcasts of BIG BROTHER rank among the top 10 programs of the summer in adults 18-49. 

“BIG BROTHER continues to be the one of the summer’s most dominant programs, and with each season, Allison and Rich produce the most twisted ways to evolve the series creatively,” said Chris Castallo, CBS Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming. “With its one-of-a-kind format, coupled with its passionate, socially engaged fan base, no other show comes close to duplicating it.” 

“Big Brother After Dark,” the ultimate fan after-show for BIG BROTHER with a live late-night look inside the House, has also been renewed for next summer. “Big Brother After Dark” will air exclusively on POP, a new cable network (currently known as TVGN) launching in 2015. 

In addition to its popularity on broadcast and cable, BIG BROTHER is one of television’s most socially engaged series. According to Nielsen’s SocialGuide, BIG BROTHER is the #1 social broadcast reality show of the summer. 

The special 90-minute season finale of this summer’s edition of BIG BROTHER will be broadcast tonight (9:30-11:00 PM, ET/PT) following the 90-minute season premiere of SURVIVOR (8:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT). Derrick, Cody and Victoria are the final three Houseguests who will compete for the $500,000 prize. 

BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 76 HD cameras and more than 100 microphones recording their every move, 24 hours a day. Each week, the Houseguests vote someone out of the house. The last remaining Houseguest will receive the grand prize of $500,000. 

BIG BROTHER is executive produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol U.S.A.

Nick's Corner: Sparkle Down!


Welcome to "Nick’s Corner" which is a new weekly article I, Nick Avellino, will be posting. So what is “Nick’s Corner” you ask? Well every week I will be posting an opinion based article where I will express my opinion and be analyzing the game, the players, the comps, stuff like that.

I’m 100% looking to hear what you, the readers, have to say! I want to make this as interactive as possible, so don’t be afraid to comment with your opinion.  Expect to see pretty much anything here!


"Sparkle Down!"


Sunday (September 14th)


So yeah last week that whole BBRewind button happened! Well it carried over this week like AT&T roll over minutes. They played the same stupid shovel seed comp and Caleb took the win. I was absolutely thrilled when I found out he won, I finally felt like there was somewhat of a power shift. Frankie knew right then and there that his game was OVER! As I watched his game crumble my grin on my face grew bigger and bigger. (side note , I really like the kid out side of the house, he’s an awesome competitor but I can’t stand him in the house. Can we just take a minute to appreciate the Jurors trashing the BB house, what a wonderful monumental moment in BB history… so far! Oh yeah Victoria won the Luxury comp WTG Vic “sarcasms fully intended”. America watched the glorious moment of Caleb putting Frankie on the block “was I the only one hearing the heavenly angles above singing?”



Tuesday (September 16th)


Tuesday was a PreTapped Eviction episode of Big Brother. I as others loved having the Live Feeds down for over 24 hours, THANKS BIG BROTHER! Cody pulls off the Veto win to send Frankie packing. Just watching how Frankie constantly digging his grave by trying to save his ass made me laugh so hard this week. Does Frankie really think that he alone will decide who wins this game? As I watched Caleb and Cody shoot him down made the entire episode. I can’t believe Frankie’s head is filled with that much air, let’s be real America the Jurors have already decided who they are going to vote for in the finale two, they don’t need Frankie’s help what so ever! Let’s move on to one of the greatest times of this season, Frankie Grande being EVICTED from the Big Brother House. As this wonderful event took place I could hear all of America cheering, but at the same time all the little fourteen year olds crying (That’s a joke, lighten up would ya? ^_^). Lastly Derrick pull out another HOH win, he’s not doing too bad with comp wins.


Wednesday (September 17th)


Our lovely final four consist of Caleb, Cody, Derrick, & Victoria. During the Live Show we saw the house recover from Frankie’s eviction (that didn't take long, Thank the BB Gods). Moving on to POV that was shown that night, our boy Cody pulls off another Veto win guaranteeing that Beast Mode Cowboy will be evicted. Did anyone use the #BlindSide? No? Me either lol. Rumor has it that production told Cody and Derrick not to say anything to Caleb that he was going to get evicted because they haven’t had a “good” eviction yet, so production wanted them to #BlindSide him. I really want to talk about how respectful Caleb was when he was blind-sided. Yes you can tell he was shock and angry when he was evicted in the house, but he still hugged the guys who evicted him. Caleb’s loyalty landed him his seat in the Jury House, but it shows that BB is a cut throat game. When Caleb was talking to Julie he had the utmost respect for the “Hit Men” and he was very very disappointed with Frankie's game. Caleb explained Frankie's character to Julie and revealed that hes not as stand up as people think he is. . Even though I rag on Caleb he really is a stand up guy “Hey Amber you really missed out!”


Wednesday (September 17th)




Then there was THREE! Fridays episode consisted of the HG flashing back and going through the highlights of the season. They showed Devin numerous times and he still gets under my skin. It was nice to flashback and see what happened this season. I cant believe this season is almost over, it makes me sad thinking about it. I know there are people out there that can't wait for it to end, but I don't want it to. seeing the past HG really made me miss some of them. I would love to see what they are capable of  this far in the game, but they missed their chance. Lastly they showed us the start of Part 1 of 3 final HOH comps.

Final Thought!

For a long time I felt that Cody, Derrick, & Victoria would make it to the final three. All season Derrick called the shots and it’s pretty impressive. If you don’t think so, well you need to accept that he will win this game for his outstanding and flawless game play. I’m not saying you have to like him but give the man some credit. Now my only thought is will Derrick burn Cody in the end?


Nick's Rankings:

Houseguests Ranked (Based on Personal Level):
1. Derrick: Great social game, likable guy, very influential, and thinks through every plan.
2. Cody: I didn't know if he would pull off the good player card but he did and he pulled through on wins to secure F3/F2 spot.
3. Victoria: Kick ass partner to Derrick, butt needs to win a final HOH comp if she wants to win money.

Houseguests Ranked (Based on game play):
1. Derrick: Great social game and can pretty much controls anyone / any situation, doesn't have to win comps to stay safe because of his social skill. Game Winner!
2. Cody: He pulled thriugh on wins and proved himself to sit in the F2.
3. Victoria: At least she made F3.


Comment down below and let me know your thoughts about the comps, houseguest, and just the craziness in the house! Can't wait to read what you have to say! 

See you next week for another "Nick's Corner"!
