Don't know if this should go here or Telly Addicts, but they're cancelling Big Brother!

It's about time. I for one wish they'd never started the ridiculous show, but anyway. It's all over now.

Good, bloody stupid programme.
Annoys me that it dominates the schedule all summmer every bloody year.

What mid-series?

Or this is the last one ever?

whomovedmychocolate Wed 26-Aug-09 13:11:49

Oh thank god! I've never managed to watch it. Mind you what will Jeremy Kyle fans watch at night instead? grin

No they're doing one more series on Channel 4 next year.

Someone else may well do it after that eg Sky

Does that mean we'll also see less of the madly irritating, gurning Davina McColl?

It had its day.

First couple of series were interesting, felt genuine, and threw up a few really pleasant candidates.

Then it quickly deteriorated into a platform for boring, thick unattractive people to try to make a fast buck.

how nice to read some good news

they should stop this year 10 being a nice round number

Can't stand the programme, this won't please my sister though she loves it. grin

UnquietDad Wed 26-Aug-09 14:50:16

Hooray! About bloody time. I can't believe they are wringing one MORE series out of it!

There is very, very little in TV which can survive more than 5 years without some major changes in format. It's just been going nowhere since about Series 4.

noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo not another series next year!!???

GreensleevesFlouncedLikeAKnob Wed 26-Aug-09 14:53:47

best news I've had all day

it's like the fucking colosseum, should have been banned years ago

dread to think what they will think up next though...

UnquietDad Wed 26-Aug-09 14:54:22

We're about 10 years away from "The Running Man"...

Rindercella Wed 26-Aug-09 14:55:28

About fecking time. Only about 9 years too late.

GreensleevesFlouncedLikeAKnob Wed 26-Aug-09 14:58:34

I'd forgotten about The Running Man shock

scary film

Perhaps they could just leave them in there and not televise it?

UnquietDad Wed 26-Aug-09 15:01:13

Heh-heh... I wrote a short story with that very premise.

Squidmission Wed 26-Aug-09 15:29:17

Hooray! Its really rubbish.

Though I think they should keep the celebrity one.

flamingtoaster Wed 26-Aug-09 15:31:46

About time - the first couple were fine, but then it became the haunt of the untalented wanting to break into television, etc.

UnquietDad Wed 26-Aug-09 15:33:00

The first one was best, when they had no idea what was likely to be going on in the outside world, or whether anyone even cared.

Agree with violethill and flamingtoaster. First series was interesting, the contestants didn't have a clue whether everyone or no-one was watching & it felt more like a genuine social experiment. Now it's full of wannabes and it's just too contrived.
