Big Brother 2 finale will air opposite the season premiere of Friends.
The final episode of Big Brother 2 will air on Thursday, Sept. 20, opposite NBC’s season premiere of Friends. The previous two shows will be preempted, a request by the producers, according to Variety, so the second-to-last ep will air Sept. 13. A CBS executive says that once the network “saw the numbers growing and performing respectably,” it made sense to air the finale during premiere week.
