That’s A Wrap

In light of more recent developments regarding CBS CEO Les Moonves and today’s decision by the network NOT to suspend him, I’ve decided to suspend coverage of the Big Brother series on this blog, at least temporarily. It is mind-boggling to me how the network execs can deny allegations that Mr. Moonves himself doesn’t deny […]

BB20, Part VI: A Point Of No Return

(State Of Play: After the end of Day 38, Kaitlyn was the fourth houseguest evicted in a 9-1 vote AND having failed the “power app” challenge that would have re-entered her into the house.

BB20, Part II: Let Them Play!

(State Of Play: at the end of Day 10 – Tyler is HOH, Sam and Steve are nominated, Faysal won the veto. Faysal was also the loser of the popularity poll, which Sam won and gets some sort of “App Store” immunity power yet to be fully explained.) As evidenced on Wednesday and Thursday night […]

BB20, Part I: Going Vetless
