I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment.. the cheaper, the better
This site is about the Big Brother feeds and contains spoilers! It isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me. It also isn't necessarily about who will win, who should win, who's cute or who's horrid. It's about watching hamsters: who's doing what and why, who's fun and who's dull. If they aren't entertaining, get rid of 'em! Thanks for encouraging my behavior.
Julie won't be on 'The Late Show' to hype the show this week: he's on reruns. So is Craig Ferguson.. maybe next week?
BB9 FEEDS REPLAY
It's started over - again! Catch the early days & stuff you missed while we wait for BB10 - only on SuperPass
Sunday, July 13 at 8pm: Introductions and first HOH comp. Feeds will begin when it's over.
Once again, overnight ratings will be posted the day after each air show, along with which shows had more viewers (if any? At least they don't have to go up against 'American Idol' this time.)
Cast intros scheduled for 'The Early Show' Tuesday, July 8
BB10 premieres Sunday, July 13
Eviction shows will have a live audience - the first one is July 16
The winner will once again receive $500k. Second place will probably be $50k again, and the weekly stipend for the others will probably remain at $750, including sequester weeks.
Finale is scheduled for September 17 so it'll be a slightly shorter season than usual, by about 10 days.

It's almost that time again
Didn't we just finish this thing? It seems like only last week we sent Adam off to whatever glory his $500k (pre-tax) is going to buy him and we sent Julie back to "The Early Show", and here we are ready to start all over again with "Big Brother 10" already
Not much is known yet and won't be for another week or so.. what we do know is only per Allison Grodner's pre-show PR plants as usual, namely that there will be 13 of them this time, and supposedly they'll be all ages and "wild" - we'll see about that
Update: Check the Line of the Day on the right: Ms. Grodner promises a diverse cast of strangers! She also threatened a twist though: "The game starts before these people even enter the house".. (I guess they'll never meet all our demands)
The premiere is July 13 at 8pm.. CBS shows will be the same as BB9's air schedule: Sundays at 8pm, Tuesdays at 9pm, and evictions on Wednesdays at 8pm, meaning the air shows will be wildly out of date from the feeds again.. eviction shows will once again be live and hosted by Julie Chen, and this time they'll have a live audience.. Showtime "After Dark" and "Housecalls" will both return also
Much ado and speculation is being made about the current "together again" ad campaign, but if you listen carefully, it just seems to refer to "Big Brother" being back in its usual summer spot
Change is good
Just ask our favorite hostess
This site has always focused on the live feeds and this time I'm hoping to take it a step further by avoiding the CBS show as much as possible, other than eviction shows.. it's too tedious trying to keep up with the real storylines on the feeds as well as the fictionalized version made up for CBS, and they never show any worthwhile Diaries anymore, so I'm just not going to bother much with the air version this time.. let them figure out their own mistakes (or not)
Also, since there are now at least 1,000,000 Big Brother sites, I'm not going to do as much in the way of full recaps of each day's happenings as I have in the past.. there are plenty of other sites doing that now and in far more detail, and Hamsterwatchers are feedsters for the most part and will have seen it all unfold anyway.. I'll give a brief overview of anything unusual, important or spectacular on a daily basis, and I will of course continue my daily ratings for each hamster - that's the fun part, after all - and I'll be dishing out my usual snarky remarks and pokes at them in the chatroom most evenings and some daytimes along with the rest of the chatters.. join us for some feedster fun!
If you still haven't registered for the chatroom and/or forum, now's a good time to do so before it all starts.. you need to register for each separately
Observant Hamsterwatchers will note a wider page and a 2nd sidebar this time to take advantage of your new wide monitors, along with some new navigation tabs to get around the site.. otherwise it's business as usual around here - check back for updates as they happen!
