If they use the words full of color that says "Big Brother" as a logo it might be the best BBUS logo so far.

Starting in the late 2000s CBS' promotional department has used different logos to fit the adverts instead of the generic one the actual show uses. The one I liked was for BB11 where the adverts were a graffiti style with a modified version of the main logo. Allison Grodner has stated the promo department has no clue what is being planned for the show until CBS releases what details they want known about it. The promo department never consults the producers and that is why the BB promos use previous season footage for the most part.

It'll be interested to see who will win, considering all of BB's twists:

- We've had a showmance couple make it to the final two (Mike & Erika)
- We've had a pair make it to the final (Dick & Daniele)
- We've had the repetitive use of a blonde waitress (Janelle, Daniele, Keesha, Jordan, Britney) win (Jordan)
- We've had an alpha male alliance (like the Horseman) make it to the end (Bra-Gade)


And I wonder who will be our next porn star be - we've had James (BB9), Steven BB10), Michele (BB11), & you just might as well count Brendon.

I do like the promo logo CBS have used for the last couple of years (last year it was the same style, but yellow on black).    Indeed now they've dropped the numbers the actual logo doesn't look as good, so replacing it wouldn't be a bad idea.

Promos though are the same as always - and always promise much more than BB plan to deliver.   As usual though I suspect I'll watch it for the first few episodes then give up - BBUSA is long overdue a twist which actually does shake up the season, not just the first week.

Yeah, I agree. They've got it times right, adding in something during the middle of the game when alliance are more solid and evicted housemates start to form a jury.

Honestly giving the program a makeover wouldn't hurt a bit. We are now on the 13th season and with the current format they are exhausting all the twists, the Housemates and the viewers can tell you how it will go each week, when a double eviction will happen, etc.

I am expecting:
- This season will return to the casting twists (a few Housemates knowing one another) and again just like in BB4-9 viewership will stop going up and start going down again. When they did casting twists from BB4-BB9 the viewership declined year on year. When they switched back over to strangers for BB10 viewership went up year on year.

- An evicted Housemate will return and be eligible to win. (We are long overdue for this twist)

- The opening titles to be colored orange (what they seem to change color now)

What I would like to see:
- The marketing department and the producers work together on adverts that actually represent the season not the ones we have now. Sometimes I think CBS' marketing department should produce the show.
- A completely new logo/opening/music. Even copying the UK's would be better right now or adopt the Australian eight season opening/music that would fit the American version.
- A small twist would be adopting the Secret Story format like BB11 Germany. This could lessen the talk of strategies 24/7.
- Give the viewing public one vote a week and a vote in the final. If there is a tie refer back to the public vote and see the percentages.
- Or switch back to public votes only and have the Housemates nominate a third person to face the public vote along with the HoH nominations. Still have the PoV.

But nothing I would like to see would happen unless BB moved networks and they put in a new creative team.

Some news:

- This season is still in SD 4:3 ratio making Big Brother the only main popular primetime show to still air in this format. This is entirely CBS' decision, the company that manages the live feeds (RealNetworks) and the fans want the program to air in HD widescreen. Real actually has the capabilities to stream HD feeds it just CBS isn't wanting to make the switch. My thoughts is that CBS is going to see if Big Brother can maintain its current level of ratings and/or build upon them or they are just cheap.

- Julie is now in promos standing in front of the newly re-designed old House. We so are overdue for a completely new House.

O.M.G. I just saw the bathroom and "other room" in the #BB13 house!! SO FREAKING SWEET! #SuperPass


Have no clue as to what the "other room" is but I am guessing either the Have/Have Not bedroom or Pandora's Box. There could be another room located on that lot but I am not getting expectations high.

I think the obvious speculation is they'll play on the unlucky idea with it being BB13 - but I doubt they'll pull it off as well as we did in BB6.   Would be great though to see someone going in with the mission to get evicted in week 1 - and obviously if they get evicted they get to stay, if they don't, they're evicted.

Thankgodfully, I'm able to watch the Early Show live on cable so any info I'll give to you if both rain and electricity allow me to watch the show. But HOUSE PICS WILL BE RELEASED TODAY @ MIDNIGHT Pacific US Time.

Are you all kidding me?  You're not serious about the house right? It could be the set from this Tim-Allen series of the early 90s (Home Improvement). it looks god awful  :-X

That makes sense, since it's one week before the season starts.  ;D
