So apparently Big Brother 19 will be streamed on the internet only, starting around October 1st 2016, if the rumors are to be believed…. I won’t be watching, I’ll be watching all my favorite shows that are on vacation right now!
How on earth CBS thinks this is a good idea is beyond me, why would they deliberately put their summer staple against shows like NCIS and Bull is just insane! Then of course you have Criminal Minds and nobody gets between me and my CM cast (I literally cried when Shamar Moore quit)
Oh as an added bonus you will have to pay $5.99 a month for All Access….. So they are now trying to charge TV viewers to watch a show they watch for free during the summer? Also How will Canada be able to watch?? Since CBS blocked Canada from watching the feeds last year…… unless they literally go via the dark net to watch….. It’s all just totally weird!
The TV viewers that watch during the summer are NOT going to switch platforms and leave the comfort of their sofas to watch All Access when How to Get Away with Murder is on… They are not missing Blue Bloods or The Voice for this mess…. They are going to continue watching SHOWS and not the internet, I can tell you 2 people that don’t even know how to access the feeds and all they do is watch the show…. I am sure everyone reading knows 2 people in the same boat!
As for Julie Chen…. I can’t really believe that she would take a demotion to Internet Show Host… Come on she already has The Talk and summer BB would she really embarrass herself by doing an internet show? I think not, so I am guessing that Jeff will take over…. because he is an internet host!
What if they put Big Brother 19 on POP…… well that would be a demotion for the show also, suddenly you’re on a channel I don’t even know how to find! I literally have no idea if we even have the channel! Who would then host? Would they allow Jeff to go on a real TV show or would they find somebody else? Julie on POP, can’t see it!
So that is it…. I am not happy, I hope some of you are OK with these potential changes…. I am miserable about it, also will BB20 also be on the internet or air on CBS? If it’s All Stars and they cast BB19 people, half of us will not even know who the hell they are! Thoughts??????
