As amazing as it sounds, Big Brother has been around for 14 seasons now. Fourteen!
And 15 is right around the corner, as CBS announced that it was bringing the summer reality staple back.
The official announcement was made Wednesday afternoon, hours before the season finale airs. Big Brother has been a summer staple for the network, always finishing near the top in the young demographics. This season, it has pulled down 6.8 million viewers and a 2.5 rating in the adult 18-49 demo.
Big Brother airs three nights a week, but gives viewers full access to its houseguests. The show has 24-hour live feeds and Big Brother: After Dark, a special show that airs on Showtime 2.
Big Brother airs its 90-minute season finale tonight at 9 p.m. EST, when it crowns the $500,000 winner of season 14 (Dan, Danielle or Ian) and names America's Player, at 9:30 p.m. following the premiere of Survivor: Philippines.
Casting for the new season has already started.
Reality TV is never going away. Big Brother isn't a show I ever see, as I genuinely am not home to watch TV during the summer, but it sounds like an interesting concept. Some of my friends are fans and they really enjoy it.
