Because of the popularity of the show Big Brother, CBS has just recently ordered an eighth installment of the show that will premiere in July 2007.

The much-awaited Big Brother season 8 will continue to have the same format just like previous installments of the show. In addition, the show will continue to be hosted by Julie Chen, wife of CBS Corporation president Les Moonves.

Big Brother, a reality series that showcases strangers who live under one roof equipped with loads of cameras and microphones to document their every move 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The goal of each housemate is to utilize his or her wit, charm, brains and brawns to ultimately win the cash prize. The reality show premiered in 2000 and has aired every summer following its initial run.

Thanks for posting that, DreamAngel!

Too bad we didn't get to see our aBBaholic in the clip, though.

(I think they showed a quick glimpse of #5, however.)

That link to the video didn't want to work for me, but I got there using the other link you provided.

Maybe this one will work better: Big Brother Auditions Live at Midway Mall

(Might take a while to load, and it starts with a 10-second commercial.)

Part of an article in Variety

...

In addition to "Pirate Master," Mark Burnett Prods. is producer "On the Lot" for Fox (premiering May 22), as well as a "Shrek"-themed online skein for AOL and DreamWorks.

The Eye's summer sked kicks off May 31 at 8 p.m. with the premiere of "Pirate Master." The skein inherits "Survivor's" regular season timeslot, bowing seven years to the day that "Survivor" first premiered on CBS.

Net ordered 13 episodes of the unscripted adventure last year (Daily Variety, Nov. 6).

For the past couple of years, CBS has aired the "Big Brother" results show on Thursday nights. With "Pirate Master" now slated for the night, it's possible the net could be mulling a change in the "Brother" air pattern.

Eye did confirm another bit of scheduling, saying that "Creature Comforts" -- the long-in-the-works project from Aardman Animations -- will premiere June 4 at 8 p.m.

"Creature Comforts" -- which combines stop-motion animated animals with audio from interviews with average Americans -- inherits the timeslot normally occupied by "How I Met Your Mother." No word on where that skein will air over the summer.
