Big Brother 3 debuts tonight.
The show that barely looked like it would survive its first season is back for a third round as CBS debuts Big Brother 3 tonight at 9 p.m. ET. The show will air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. and Thursdays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. ET, with Thursdays featuring the live eviction. In addition to the live feeds available for a fee, Canada’s Jam! Showbiz will be updating its Big Brother 3 site 24/7. What can we expect this year? NO one knows, but the Sacramento Bee thinks it will be “continued monotony” for the sake of ratings and USA TODAY expects the show, complete with “spectacularly incompetent” host Julie Chen, to be “reliably loathsome”. Let the fun begin!

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
