Missed the end of Big Brother

August 13th, 2007 at 07:43 am

The mindless reality TV show Big Brother is one of my guilty pleasures. I always look forward to summer because Big Brother is on.

Unfortunately my DVR cut off the last 10 minutes because some other show on CBS ran long (I'm guessing a preseason football game, but I'm not sure.) This used to happen to me all the time when The Amazing Race was on Sunday nights. (TAR is another one of my favorite shows -- at least this one is not totally mindless, you learn geography. Smile ) I had to set my DVR to record an additional hour every week to make sure I didn't miss any of TAR.

So anyway I went to the Big Brother blogs to read what happened and I ended up getting the next episode's spoiler too, argh! (CBS offers a 24-hour feed -- for a charge -- that people watch and find out what happens well before the episodes air. Then some blog about it.)

I know... as far as world problems go, this probably ranks a bit down the list. But this is my blog, and I can vent if I want to.

    You can watch the show on CBS.Com without getting spoiled...

    Got to http://www.cbs.com/innertube that way you don't go to the Big Brother page first and find out what happened.

    I'm a huge fan too but I've been avoiding the message boards just for that reason. Smile

    It wasn't running late because of any football game. It ran over due to CBS' coverage of The PGA Championship. And you can bet that the last few weeks of Big Brother on Sunday will be running at least 15+ minutes behind because of a football game. At least BB starts at 8 PM Eastern, so even if it runs to 9:30, it's not too bad. I'd be really irked if it were on at 10 PM and ended up running to past 11:30, which has happened in the past with a made-for-tv movie or a special presentation. @@ Ugghhh, why can't they just pre-empt 60 Minutes????????????
