(Doing my best Julie Chen impersonation): But First....,


CBS leans on 'Brother' during strike

Reality show staffing up for early launch

By JOSEF ADALIAN (http://www.variety.com/index.asp?layout=bio&peopleID=1373)



CBS may rely on its "Big Brother" as a strike contingency.

Skein, usually a summer staple, has started staffing up for an in-season run that could be on the air as soon as February, people familiar with the situation said.
Indeed, in anticipation of a strike, Eye quietly began casting for the next edition of the show a few weeks ago.
Exec producer Allison Grodner is also said to be working on a new creative twist for the Julie Chen-hosted skein, in which a group of strangers live together in a house for three months.
There's been buzz that the next edition of "Big Brother" might actually use celebrities, as opposed to ordinary people. A long strike might work in favor of such a plan, since some celebs normally busy working on sitcoms and dramas might have some time on their hands.
Possibility of an early "Big Brother" popped up on Tuesday's edition of the Eye's "Early Show." Anchor Hanna Storm joked that the show might be back sooner than the summer, prompting a roll of the eyes from Chen. Chen then expressed her hope that the strike is settled soon.
"Big Brother" would be a perfect strike weapon for CBS because it airs three times a week, filling three key hours of primetime.
Eye execs declined to comment. Endemol USA and Allison Grodner Prods. produce "Big Brother."

Celebrities are yesterday's news. The fact that it's a bunch of average Joes is what makes reality TV fun.

Celebrity big brother just wouldn't be the same. If you think back to any reality show that was made for average joes, and then used celebrities...it failed. For example, the celebrity survivor...failed; Celebrity Mole...failed. It would be cool, though, if Big Brother aired twice a year instead of once.

The problem with the celebrity reality shows is that they never get actual celebrities :tape: Anyways I would be all for Big Brother airing this winter :yeah:

I was worried about Lost being one of the shows put on hiatus. It wasn't set to begin airing until February and I figured they don't have much filmed, if anything at this point. I hope it is settled quickly!!

Celebrity survivor?

Yeah it was several years back (3-4 years ago?). It had Joan Rivers and her daughter, Chris Judd (Jennifer Lopez' ex), Bruce Jenner and I don't remember the others. It wasn't actually "celebrity survivor" but it was based on survivor, with celebrities in a remote area like survivor. It stunk.


The problem with the celebrity reality shows is that they never get actual celebrities

Yeah true..
