    Why bother. Cbs has shown all season that they have favored Frankie and even now when he’s not going to win it’s announced that he will be on the talk on Thursday. Not the winner of the game but Frankie. I guess when u have a famous family member it gets u better ratings. Fan of big brother since day one but will not watch again or watch the talk. My money’s going to the view and even the reel. Just makes me sick that they’ve ruined it by giving that egomaniac more attention than the winner

      Worse things is they’ll think having someone like Frankie on boosted rankings when it was actually Zach, Nicole, and Donny that helped this season, not to mention last season controversies is what hurt last season.

  2. Mike R. says:

    Yay, I guess, but casting still needs a major overhaul, casting is excellent across the border on BBCan, and the same people cast that, so clearly CBS needs to give Kass more freedom. Hopefully next season is all stars, because this season sucked, and favoring Frankie one of the most unlikable house guess was unfortunate, and failing to show any of his gross comments was even worse. At least this season had a few gems in Nicole, Donny, and at time Zach.

    I hope they have better twists and better houseguests in these future seasons. The BOB and 1 alliance thing doesn’t make very interesting tv.

    Not surprising, the ratings were fantastic all summer, CBS must be happy with how the show was consistently hitting between a 2.0-2.4. Now how about giving us that Season 3 renewal for Under the Dome? :)

  5. A says:

    Woohoo! I spent a lot of time watching Zach and Frankie on the live feeds this summer. I wish they both stayed in the house together longer.

  6. Diz says:

    Awesome news! It is my number 1 show even though the past 2 seasons have been kind of duds.

  7. I wish CBS would cancel Big Brother!

  8. wrstlgirl says:

    Yeah and Frankie will say it’s because of him and his millions of beloved fans. Dude is delusional beyond belief.

  9. Tran says:

    Wish CBS should end long running reality competition series in the near future not only Big Brother but Survivor as well and they may keep The Amazing Race depending on how many more seasons it will take before it ends at some point in time.

    That’s unfortunate
