America’s Choice returns Thursday

CBS is once again giving Big Brother 6 viewers a chance to affect the show, as America’s Choice returns this Thursday. However, we won’t be able to vote Kaysar back into the house once again, as a press release makes clear:

This week’s America’s Choice vote does not involve a house guest returning to the “Big Brother” House.

So what could it be? Can we vote to put a muzzle on Ivette, Howie, and Beau? Or will be able to vote for one of the houseguests to have a walk-on role on Two and a Half Men? Julie Chen will let us know Thursday, probably at the exact same moment that she finds out by reading the cue card.

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.
