  1. I stopped watching BB as of the week before last. I mostly wanted to see the original housemates & seen enough, good to see Reggie & Dave etc. But i just cannot devote so many hours to reality tv, especially since i already watched the 2021 & parts of VIP which already took up too much of my time.

    I def agree with what others have said, the lack of live voting component would surely effect ratings, its just not the same. I think if they started doing that it would lift ratings for sure, On the other hand how many people under 30 are bothering to watch reality tv? more into video games & Youtube i think?

    1. Same with me, stopped a week or two ago, just so long the episodes and around 45-60 minutes is a challenge and eviction, we want to see the housemates living together not some superchallenge and drawn out eviction like Survivor lite. Agree too the live element is sorely missing, seems so polished or edited down, can tell in parts they’ve added extra big brother voiceovers later etc which is fair enough but looks strange when it’s noticeable and doesn’t seem natural.

      1. The fact it was recorded last year really doesn’t help things. It is edited within an inch of it’s life, whereas some of the best moments in the original Big Brother were live.

  2. Paul Barry mentioned in Media Watch he is away for a few weeks with Janine Perrett stepping in again to host. What’s that line about never taking a break in television?

    Hopefully it’s a sign of things to come.

    1. As a true crime fan i’m intrigued enough to watch but am finding it very slow going. It’s not as bad as the Ron Iddles show on 7 last year using the overdone slowmo flashback scenes though.

      I don’t think Deb Wallace has quite found her feet as a presenter yet but hopefully will improve with time.

  3. Big Brother viewers are abandoning it. Seven will need to consider renewal or maybe it could be a 7plus only show if viable.

    Million Dollar Murders is another flop.

    1. I think BB already has another season film. Or I read something wrong somewhere.

      The problem is the very narrow format of being pre-recorded. The joy of BB was the human experiment aspect. Not little clips of people around a task that favours upper body strength.
