Big Brother 2 debuts tonight.
Executive producer Arnold Shapiro’s reputation goes on the line tonight when the new Big Brother 2 debuts at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. A flurry of late-hour news–including the revelation that the house guests had already moved in and that CBS would charge for the live feeds–has already annoyed some fans. And just over 24 hours before the show debuted, Variety reported that the show still didn’t have a partner to stream the live video from the house–video they plan to charge for–although they were expected to finalize a deal with Real Networks soon. Thoughts and reactions from before the new show debuts:
- “Big Brother tries again”
- “If a civil war erupts, the Southerners outnumber those from the North and West eight to four.”
- Julie Chen: “I’m hoping to get through this next show unscathed”
- “Who’s watching?”
