STRIKE WATCH | O ‘Brother,’ where art thou: CBS pulls out ‘Big’ guns for strike

In Big Brother, CBS, Strike Watch, The Chenbot on November 7, 2007 at 8:39 pm

Could The Chenbot be back so soon? With the writers strike in full swing and both sides digging in for a long fight, CBS is gearing up for an earlier-than-usual Big Brother 9. Reality shows are likely to become ubiquitous as the strike goes on because they don’t rely on union writers.

Various reports this week have the show returning as early as January or as late as March; at any rate, it looks like a whole new pack of houseguests could be competing in time for February sweeps.

But what of a twist for season nine? Rumors are swirling that this upcoming season may be the long-awaited celebrity edition. No comment, of course, from CBS.

The shorter the strike, the better off everyone will be. With that said, if being happy about the early return of one of my favorite summer shows is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
