Big Brother 14 USA
« on: September 16, 2011, 11:24:21 AM »
CBS has officially announced that Big Brother USA will return next summer for a 14th season. CBS for a third year in a row has given Big Brother an early renewal because if the continued increase in ratings from the previous year.

Now some questions:

*Can BB14 continue to build upon the ratings like it has since BB10?
*With BB13 managing to average 8 million viewers this year can BB14 build upon that or match it?
*Will CBS invest money into their cash cow?
*Will CBS finally make Big Brother in HD?

Next year won't be a complete All-Stars season, producers are casting for BB14. When the producers did BB7 they did not open the casting process up. So we could potentially have a complete new group or a mix like this year.

And if anyone is wandering here is a reason the producers have said that BBUSA might not be in HD:

Quote from: Rich Meehan
There’s a reason why the show isn’t likely to be in high definition any time soon, and it has to do with the way Big Brother is produced. Rich Meehan explained, “We would love it, but it’s very difficult because of the amount of footage and tape that we have. And as fast as we have to turn it around, and the sheer space that it would require to have all that media in our Avids would be massive.”
- Source

---My retort is that the USA producers should take a look at other versions of BB around the world like the UK. If the UK producers can film their version in HD, post various clips online, make various clips available to their spin-off show and air 1 hour long episodes seven days a week then there is no excuse for BBUSA not to be in HD period. The USA producers have plenty of time to put two highlight episodes together plus 25 minutes of House footage on Thursday. I am thinking cheap and lazy on both the production and CBS. Because of the continued rating increases plus the fact CBS most likely isn't paying as much for BB as it did back in 2000 they should defiantly spend the cash and upgrade the program.

There is no excuse now not to be in HD now HD is standard in terms of TV production.   It's highly likely over the last few years they'd have had to replace all the cameras at some point - so the extra cost would be minimal if offset against the future cost of replacing cameras as and when required.    If they couldn't replace all cameras they could simply upscale to HD for those shots instead.

I think BB USA is safe now for at least another 3 years. Even if the ratings start to drop over the next couple of years, they will still likely be above or the same as they were 5 years ago, which were considered acceptable for renewal at the time.

Well, I think that it's time to open a topic for Big Brother...

Some people say that it's going to start at 5th July, but I'm not very sure.

Have you got any exact infos ?

CBS hasn't officially announced when the season will start except it will return in July. Typically most seasons have started in the first week of July. The Housemates usually enter before July 4th while the TV broadcast will usually air after July 4th. The Housemates are typically in the House around 3-6 days before the show officially premieres and the live feeds start. Most are saying July 5th because it falls into CBS' usual pattern to launch Big Brother during the first Thursday of July.

So far the only time the American version came close to cancellation was after Big Brother 1. CBS was disappointed in its modest ratings when compared to the numbers Survivor pulled in plus it lost half of the viewers from launch. If Big Brother 2 wasn't able to pull in viewers the American version would have been axed. The only factors that saved BB from the chopping block (and pushed into the re-tooling block) at the time were:

*All major networks wanted the format in 2000, as a consequence CBS overbid and paid $25 million for the rights.
*Compared to CBS' regular scheduled programming Big Brother managed to get the majority of its audience from the younger 18-49 demographic.

Big Brother premieres on July 12th @ 9:00 PM/8:00 PM CT

Straight from CBS the 14th season of Big Brother USA will start on Thursday, July 12 @ 9:00 PM and will air this year with the following schedule:

Sundays (nominations), starting July 15th @ 8:00 PM Eastern, taking over for The Amazing Race.

Wednesdays (Power of Veto), starting July 18th @ 8:00 PM Eastern, taking over for Survivor.

Thursdays (Live Eviction), starting July 19th @ 9:00 PM Eastern.

I am speculating the finale will be on Wednesday, September 19th and will be aired after Survivor. This is keeping up with the recent trend since the program has moved from Tuesdays to Wednesdays. If ratings can hold up CBS could have another 90 minute finale with Survivor having a 90 minute premiere. Duration should be around 70-75 days again.

I am also speculating a drop in ratings due to the Olympics this year. Big Brother should be able to provide modest ratings during this period but not the levels that Big Brother 13 pulled during the same time period.

^^^ If those four are the four huge surprises, I'm not watching.

The "most housemates ever" - so seventeen housemates? (Topping BB9). No Returnees, PLEASE. Survivor is killing us with that.

I definitely don't think these four will be the surprises, if indeed the surprises are even past houseguests.

- Chelsea Hart: She was the bitch of BB9 i want see her again.
- Keesha: i had with her a relationship with Love-hate, but never can deny that she was a good housemate.
-Porsche Brigg: I love her; i want see her again. #TeamPorsche, my fav from BB13

If there are ex housemates AGAIN! I'll doubt I watch. Why they don't finally do a 2nd All-Stars instead of bringing them back like this?
:) Live happy every day!!! <3

Well there is no news at all so far and I certainly doubt more ex-housemates will be brought back.

I don't think that the 4 "big surprises" will be ex-housemates, but twists to the game e.g. all of the evicted housemates this year will be a part of the jury.

I would actually like that twist. As long as the jurors are sequestered, not like BB3. I'm still upset Danielle lost to Lisa that way.
