Big Brother renewed for season 16; summer of bigotry a ratings success
Big Brother has been renewed for a 16th season less than a week before its 15th-season finale. This season has been a hit for CBS, as the parade of bigotry and bad behavior, which has continued, gave the show increased ratings and a final four that includes two of the biggest offenders (GinaMarie and Spencer).
Here’s what CBS said in a press release about the ratings, not about the awful behavior by the people that helped them rake in cash this summer:
“This summer, Big Brother is averaging 7.29 million viewers, 2.6 in adults 18-49 and 3.1 in adults 25-54. Compared to last year, BIG BROTHER is up +11% in viewers, +8% in adults 18-49 and +7% in adults 25-54.”
