Tonight's (Not) Live Broadcast Preview

The rumors have been confirmed - tonight's show will be taped earlier in the afternoon, and the BB sites have been filled with complaints.

But I sort of get the reasoning behind it, as I don't believe it's just because of the fears of a few curses or racial epithets getting through. This is bound to be the most explosive episode in history, and tempers could lead things to get out of hand. CBS is just as afraid of hand gestures and violence as they are of the "seven words you can't say on TV". Flipping a person off can't be digitally blurred on the fly, and even the quickest control room can't guarantee that they'll make the camera changes on time.

It sucks, but is the reality of broadcast television.

You are all talking in code. I am at work and can't see. What happened? Did they evict Natalie?

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterZoot Mantis

2 years in a row. Third times a charm maybe? Allstars. Hahaha. Ahhhh. Good night tonight.

What's Chima babbling on about? She looks like she's about to melt.

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbish

She and the producers need to have a bit of a talk? Whilst Lydia freaks out, what the hell is going on?

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterale

Is Julie calling more people on their shit this year? I like it.

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbish

I wish I could see what's happening. Your vague comments are not too enlightening.

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterZoot Mantis

Jeff put up Natalie and Jesse, and by a vote of 3-2 Jesse was evicted from the house. Lydia broke down into tears, and Chima started babbling about needing to talk to production about something or other. Jesse acted he like knew it was coming.

Thank you Ale. It was very frustrating reading all the unclear comments.

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterZoot Mantis

@Ale

She said something along the lines of "So you knew about the wizard power all along. Looks like I'm going to have to have a talk with the producers."
And it seemed like it was directed at Jeff.
So, just throwing out ideas here, she either thinks Jeff new about the power since day one, or she doesn't understand the concept of him having the power for 2 weeks, and he somehow should not have found out about having the power until tonight (?). I don't know. She's clearly going to be miserable all week thought, which should be awesome.

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbish

She will spend the whole week in HOH with the Rumored winner!!! Trying to suck up and gripping about the men in the house and how Jeff shouldn't have got to use the power for some reason!

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSara

What the hell??? WHY IS KEVIN TAKING DIRECTIONS FROM CHIMA???

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbish

No prob, Zoot. I can imagine nothing we said made any sense to you...sorry :)

Bish, clearly she doesn't get it- regardless of her meaning. He obviously KNEW he had some power..blahblahblah

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterale

Whoa. Wait. hahaa i just realized Chima was playing in the HOH. uhh. UH OH.

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbish

Kevin is making it really hard to believe he has any backbone. WTH was that?

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterale

phhheeeewwwwwwwwwwww.

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbish

So...Jeffrey had the brains AND the balls to kick out Commander Meathead. Good for him.

BBAD will be a lot better to watch without his vain, narcissistic ass in the HOH bed. Natalie next...if there is a BB God.

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterReefer Jello

Is it just me, or did Jeff just not even try to buzz in? He just waited for Michelle to buzz in and looked over at her.

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterale

Man. Michelle is apperently for real.
Wow. I have no idea how this week is going to unfold now.
I'm gonna go ahead and just take a stab that it's going to be Jeff and Russell on the block.

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterbish

That is what I am afrais of.. I am worried that she will let the bugs get in her ears instead of sticking with the two people that have been with her... Only hope nat and chima or nat and lydia or lydia and chima.. or kevin I dont care just not jeff and jordan her so called alliance
