Marcellas hosting BB5 web talk show.
As if three episodes a week won’t be enough to satiate your appetite for scheming skanks and jackasses, Big Brother 5 is adding a daily half-hour talk show to its line-up every weekday. The talk show, however, won’t air on CBS, but on CBS.com. Starting Wednesday, Marcellas Reynolds and Gretchen Massey–both of whom appeared on Big Brother 3–will host the program, which will include “phone calls, fan e-mails, lengthy discussions of strategy and alliances and visits from former ‘Big Brother’ guests and recently evicted contestants,” Zap2it.com reports. The show is called House Calls, and CBS claims it “is the first live Internet talk show produced exclusively for a television network.”

+ also: the show will air at 1 p.m. ET every weekday; call 323.CBS.1000 to participate.
