Big Brother 9 may air in March, feature celebrities

One of the most visible effects of the film and TV writers’ strike may involve CBS’ summer reality staple, Big Brother.

The series “could easily return as soon as March,” Variety reports. Every other season of the show has aired in the summer, debuting in July and concluding about three months later.

Even more surprisingly, Big Brother 9 may be “a long-rumored celebrity edition.” Almost two years ago, TMZ incorrectly reported that CBS was announcing a celebrity edition of the show.

Exactly which celebrities would subject themselves to Allison Gordner’s self-serving whims isn’t clear. Heck, Dancing with the Stars can’t draw A-list talent, and it doesn’t have ridiculous challenges or a camera in the bathroom.
