Big Brother season 25 gets late premiere date
Big Brother is a staple of reality TV. Really just a TV staple in general. With such a wonderfully simple concept that has been expanded on so many times, you could say that every reality show takes something from Big Brother.
In fact, it feels like the quintessential reality competition show, and this move shows no signs of stopping. The Big Brother 24 finale was one of the most moving episodes of the series viewers had ever seen.
After a successful 24th season, fans wanted more. Accounts of the season’s contestants continued after the finale, such as the relationship between season 24 contestants Taylor Hale and Joseph Abdin.
Big Brother 25 is already testing fans’ patience
Unfortunately, fans will have to wait a little longer for the next competitive show fix. CBS has announced that Big Brother 25 will not premiere until Wednesday, August 2nd. Fans of the show know that the show usually airs in the summer season, starting in either June or July. Although CBS didn’t give a reason for the move, the writers’ strike is likely the reason.
During the 2007-2008 writers’ strike, all television, even reality TV, suffered in part from saturation. Many may remember the ill-fated “Big Brother 9” winter season, which saw ratings plummet for previous seasons from February through April.
Then again, it’s not a bad idea to fill the fall time slot this way, considering Big Brother was the most-watched reality series in streaming last summer. The show will continue to air three times a week, airing on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays and premiered with a 90-minute episode. Survivor and The Amazing Race will also be extended to 90 minutes on Wednesday nights.
Tell us: Do you think it’s ill-advised to push back Big Brother 25? WILL CBS BE BETTER REPRESENTED FILLING THEIR FALL TIMES ON THIS FILLING OR IS THE BIG BROTHER NATURALLY BETTER IN THE SUMMER?
