When you think about it, BB is the perfect show to fill a slot for CBS, when a strike happens. They don't have to have a huge budget. They don't even have to have expensive extra prizes, if they don't want to have them. They usually don't buy expensive groceries or anything like that. They pay the stipends and the grand prize and 2nd place, and that's about it. And they could even recycle some of the contest sets, if they needed to do so.

I hope they have two BB's this year!

This is great news. Not too sure if having a bunch of former hollywood stars is a good idea of they decide to do that.

'Big Brother 9': The Hunt Is On

New season will air at some point in 2008... Maybe soon!

November 15, 2007

'Big Brother' host Julie Chen

While not confirming those pesky rumors that a new season of "Big Brother" could start as soon as February, CBS has opened up casting for the reality favorite.

CBS announced Thursday (Nov. 15) that "Big Brother 9" will have organized casting calls in 17 cities (some very close to each other) between Saturday, Nov. 17 (in Los Angeles and Columbia, South Carolina) and Saturday, Dec. 8.

Additional information is available through the CBS website.

CBS also announced the return of Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan as executive producers and Julie Chen as host.

While there had been rumors of a celebrity season, the show's format appears to be unchanged: A group of strangers will share a house bedecked in cameras for three months, voting people out every week. The last houseguest wins a prize.

The one thing that isn't revealed is when "Big Brother 9" will premiere. The CBS release only says that it "will be broadcast in 2008 on dates to be announced."

CBS didn't announce the eighth season pick-up for "Big Brother" until this past February, before premiering the show in July. The early start means that at the very least CBS will be ready to start "Big Brother 9" early in the spring should the writers' strike continue and should the network have an emergency need for adult 18-49-friendly programming possibly filling three primetime hours per week.

Your casting call opportunities:

Nov. 17 -- Los Angeles -- Exclusive Casting Studios, 7700 Sunset Blvd., (12 Noon-3 PM)

That's great news!

Could this early schedule be caused by the writers' strike? CBS trying to fill in slots?

Justa wondering...

I agree Jen. I don't like seeing HG who have a different agenda than playing the game, i.e. Jen was there for camera time, Zach wanted his name out there, etc. I want to see a house full of people who want to play the game.

If the writers strike away - BB9 will play

I almost couldn't believe it, but now after reading through the posts I'm getting this exciting feeling! AH! I got so wrapped up in BB8 I had to back off a little. Like all-knowing zack states....just watch and see man.

Had a sneaky suspicion when I saw a commercial for the casting call on CBS. I figure it is due to the writer's strike. They have to put something on TV. Reality TV is the easiest I guess.

I am so psyched, but I hope they still have the summer one cuz there is nothing on TV then. I get a little too involved, but oh well, everyone at work is too. Jessica and Eric came here (Odessa, TX) for a hockey game appearance--a couple girls at work got their pics taken. We have even gotten in trouble at work for discussing it--sure our bosses are as psyched as I am--lmao

Has anyone read anything as to whether or not they would have both the winter AND summer edition? I don't want to give up the summer one for a winter one. Having both would be fine with me though.

It sounds to me like BB is being told to get ready and be on alert, in case they need them. I doubt they would have two BB's, one right after another, but I guess anything is possible. Thanks for posting the article, Dade!
