celebrity Big Brother, Survivor now both unlikely after CBS fails to get stars.

celebrity Big Brother, Survivor now both unlikely after CBS fails to get stars.
A celebrity edition of Big Brother was possibly going to air last month, with plans for a celebrity Survivor in the works; CBS president Les Moonves said Ray Romano and others “[had] expressed interest” in the latter. Both shows probably won’t happen now, according to Moonves, who tells Entertainment Weekly in the Nov. 8 issue, “We weren’t able to land the talent we’d hoped for.” The magazine quotes Romano who says he “was never going to do Big Brother … and the only way I would have done Celebrity Survivor is if it took place at a Hooters.” Even Danny Bonaduce turned the network down, saying he’s “trying to break away” from such shows.
