Big Brother renewed for its 14th season

CBS has renewed Big Brother for its 14th season. Although the renewal comes earlier than usual and before season 13 even concludes later tonight, this is no surprise at all.

As the network revealed, the show had its best ratings since 2004. The renewal press release repeats those ratings numbers, including its growth online and in social media.
