Big Brother 2 Hour Finale

Everyone who's been following us on twitter for the past several months knows we launched a campaign about 8 weeks before the show started to get everyone tweeting to CBS that we Big Brother fans wanted & deserved a longer finale this year.

Guess what? CBS listened!!!

The network has decided to double the show's Tuesday, Sept. 15 season finale, expanding it from one hour to two, insiders close to the production confirm. The grande-sized "Brother" will air live from 9-11 p.m., with Julie Chen set to host.

Look for the two-hour "Brother" to mix all the traditional elements of the final show -- specifically, the crowning of a winner-- with an extended reunion segment featuring return appearances by ejected houseguests. There will, of course, be a studio audience.

CBS's decision to double down on "Brother" is no surprise given the show's stellar ratings this season. Despite being in its 11th season, the show is up 5 percent in overall viewers-- an almost unheard of growth for such a veteran show.

In years past, producers have had to cram a whole bunch of elements into a one-hour finale, leaving limited time for reunion elements and cast interviews.

Caroline you are gonna end up with your own show girl friend!! Just got home to see the show, sad to see Nat still in the house. Storms are over in my part of MS. On a sad note.. I would ask all of you to keep the Simmons family in your prayers tonight, in a freak accident their 18 month old baby girl Shay Anne got ran over and she passed. This accident has effected my entire small town.So please send prayers of understanding peace to this family. You guys are great, Remember to hug the ones you love,never walk out the door mad,and tell the ones you love that you do.Sorry to be a drag, but life is but a second in time. So once again love and happiness to you all.Renee

So happy about the two hour finale. However I still have a gripe. The final week is always the dullest on the feeds. Couldn't they entertain us more by doing two hour show before?

I am from nyc, so I am always complaining! Also, I am now drunk! Nevermind!

This is my first post, but I have reading every day, with my job I do not get tine to watch much TV, I want to thank you all for your great posts and keeping me and other well informed.I not sure if anyone commented on when Chima was talking about her brutal rape. I have been a Corrections Officer for 34 years, so I know my way around the system. She stated the rape was 10 years ago, if you figure 1 to 2 years for the trial, that means that they gave him the needle in only 8 years, I have never heard of someone being executed that quick, the average time someone is on death row is 22.8 years. I'm not saying she is laying, but with everyone on that show I take what they say with a grain of salt.

I almost exploded when Jeff was chubby in his kid pictures and more self conscious than Jordan. I might still explode.
