What If There Were No More Live Feeds?

I have a question for you.  If the live feeds for Big Brother here in the U.S.A. were no longer available, would you still watch the shows?

The reason I ask that is because of what will be happening to The UK's Big Brother this season.  Channel 5, which has taken over the handling of Big Brother from Channel 4, will no longer be offering live feeds for our fellow BB diehards across the pond.

Channel 5 has decided to forego live streaming of their Big Brother content for video highlights.  There will be a Facebook app that will provide "real-time news, extra video content and the ability to vote out housemates online." (Don't get your feathers ruffled my fellow BB USA watchers, BB UK fans have always had the ability to vote out their hamsters.)  I don't know if their fans will also be able to vote out their houseguests the old fashioned way or view highlights and news also on the channel's website but I think all of this really sucks for them.

Despite what Mark Zuckerberg and the media want you to believe, not everybody is on Facebook - myself included - but that's beside the point. So they would have to pay for their vote to eliminate a houseguest with Facebook Credits (their own currency which you have to pay real money for). So they have the ability to watch exclusive video. So the social aspect of Facebook combined with The UK's Big Brother Facebook page will take away traffic from their Big Brother sites created by their fans. I could go on and on but I won't because what really sucks is they won't get to watch live feeds anymore.

As the article in that link above mentions, their live feeds were cut in 2009 but brought back for what was believed to have been their last season last year. With the switch to Channel 5 this year, their fans were hoping the live feeds would stay with them. They are quite disappointed now.

What if that were to happen here? What if CBS and Allison Grodner told Real Networks (or any other company that had the ability to provide the live feeds) that their services were no longer needed? What if CBS told us that we'll just have to make do with the clips they put on their website and that they would create a Facebook page for us to follow the goings on in the house?

Would you continue to be a Big Brother fan? Would you continue to watch the shows aired three times a week? Would you believe even less the 'storyline' that was fed to us on the show? Or would you just stop watching altogether?

I'm curious to read about what you think and what you would do if this were to happen here. Let your thoughts rip in the comments below!

New Cast Picture. Lawon, seriously?

Just a quickie - not much 'new' to report today yet.  CBS release a picture of the eight new Hgs outside the house.  All I could do was look at Lawon and think...  WHY?   He may end up being my favorite for all I know but the outfit he wore into the house is not helping matters...  Remember the old Geek or Nerd posters (I am probably dating myself here but some will get it.  Lawon could fit right on it I tell ya!

Danielle didn't make it on Ragan's "Rumor Control" show today on Real - shocked? Not me.  Real said she was having Skype issues.  I'd say that's because they don't have Skype inside the Big Brother House!

As I said this was going to be a quickie - I will leave you with a picture of the full cast - well the eight anyways - and one of us will be sure to let you know if there are any amazing developments tonight (there won't be ;) ).

Day 3 in the Big Brother House - Happy 4th!

A late Happy Fourth to those of you in the USA - and to anyone else around the wourld that chooses to celebrate our special day and is a fan of Big Brother!

As most of you should know - even thought we didn't post it very officially, the 8 new HGs entered the house on Saturday as shown by this picture of Shelly, Porsche, Lawon and Dominic entering the house.

Now the way I expect things to have played out is the eight new HGs get to know each other a little, possibly even spending the first night without the Duos.  Then probably yesterday (Sunday) the Duos were introduced in some type of dramatic fasion.  Maybe they did a competition they thought was hosted by the Duos but at the end found out they were joining them after they said some mean things to them thinking they would only be there for that competition - the possibilities are endless.

By by now, late evening of the fourth, they have all settled in and whatever second twist is going on may have been introduced, or perhaps the second twist won't be revealed to them until Thursday - if we get a live peek at them, however most seasons we don't actually seem them LIVE until the second Thursday show, in this case July 14th.

And on the topic of the 'duos' there has been limited random tweeting from Danielle and Bredan but I am pretty sure it is just friends of theirs that they have entrusted their account to.

And with that I am off to bed - long day of a town festival and fireworks.   Have a great one Big Brother Fans - only three days to Big Brother 13!

Introducing The Big Brother Gossip Show

Tired of the nice, safe Big Brother online shows? Then The Big Brother Gossip Show is for you. Every Saturday night, the crew of this blog will be gathering to bitch, moan, and laugh about everything that happened in the previous week. Yes, there will be spoilers...and a dirty word or two.

The first show was recorded tonight, and besides introducing ourselves, we chatted about the house, the new cast, and the rumors surrounding the "dynamic duos" twist. This week's panel included Scott, Mike, HamsterDame, and our newest member Ash. You can also access the show via Scott's android/iPhone app, The Ledge.

Please tell us what you think of this new venture. There were certainly a few mistakes, but I'm real excited to get together with the rest of our writers every week.
