Tuesday’s episode of Big Brother is online, making network history; Michael gets evicted

CBS has made network history by posting an entire episode of a show online. Tragically, that show is perhaps the worst show on network television: Big Brother 6. The episode was Tuesday’s, which was preempted by the president.

Don’t expect this every week or from every show on CBS. Larry Kramer, CBS’ Digital Media president, tells Broadcasting & Cable, “A lot of permission issues are involved, and because it is a reality show that we own, we were able to do it. We have the right relationship with the producers and everything. If it were a sitcom we didn’t own, for instance, from music to everything, there would have been too many issues.”

On last night’s show, Michael was evicted by a vote of 9 to 1, and his partner Kaysar became Head of Household.

By the way, this show totally sucks: Michael’s eviction was the most undramatic event to air on television in a long time, and when Julie Chen revealed the big twist to Michael, he was like, and I paraphrase here, “Um, yeah, we know. Duh. You idiot. Are you really the host? Is this a joke?” Julie promised us she’d reveal the twist to everyone else next week; of course, they’ve already figured it out.

The episode was interrupted with updates from the Big Brother 5 crew, including Jase, Drew, and everyone’s favorite halfwit Cowboy, who told us that he hasn’t seen half-sister Nakomis since the show ended. Diane delivered the best line, although she fumbled the ending. She started, “I know all of America wants to know” — who the hell you are and why you’re interrupting our regular episode, since we totally don’t care who you are? Yes, that’s exactly what we were thinking.
