  • Time to end the Betty White Series. Maybe an occasional one but typical NBC, overkill.

  • This seasons cast of Big Brother is barely watchable. I hate that they put Rachel’s sister in the group. It would be nice to have a season without having to listen to “Rachel, Rachel, Rachel” Ugh.

    • I really like Rachel’s sister… she is the only one I actually like ( and Helen)

      • Elissa seems to be among the nicer people in the house so far. Sure she could have been upfront about being Rachel’s sister, but I understood her intentions even though she should have realized how obvious it would be. She does have a little bit of Rachel’s annoying mannerisms but I genuinely felt bad for her when she was nice to McCrae and was open enough to confide in him and he would not even attempt to reassure her of her safety and when she was crying to Helen. I really don’t understand why people are so quick to judge her without really knowing her. I love my sisters but they are a little nuts and I wouldn’t want to initially be judged if I came on the show after them solely on the fact that we are related. Maybe she is coming across as unlikeable to some on the live feeds but I can’t keep up with them so my judgement is based merely on the live episodes

      • I probably should clarify. I don’t dislike Elissa. I’m just so sick of Rachel this, Rachel that, every season. I found her to be one of the most annoying house guests ever on BB so having to listen to every one talk about her every season since is grating.

  • Why would people of color or who are gay want to watch this round of Big Brother when several of the contestants are outright bigots? I’m ready to stop watching.

    • I’ve been hearing about some of the comments being made but I don’t watch the live feeds so I haven’t seen/heard them for myself. I’m not happy about it and I’m not a person of color or gay, that shouldn’t matter. Between that and the complete uninteresting group of housemates this season I’m not sure how long I’ll stick around.

    • Most stopped watching before the season started.

  • Perhaps it’s different here in Canada, but Betty White’s Off Their Rockers was repeats last night. There was ONE new episode last week and according to the my television guide there will be ONE new episode next week which will be the actual, actual, actual season finale with Ed Asner as guest star. I repeat “actual” because I thought the season finale was months ago. :)

  • I’ve even watching for 14 seasons, and was so excited, but after a week of feeds, I’m so sick of the ugliness and hate, and CBS is condoning it by nt replacing those idiots. Show the audience that this is NOT acceptable.

  • SYTYCD is toast, did they think that stupid change would really help them? Poor Carlos looked like he was going to cry.
