Big Brother 13: Now It's Official - CBS Picks Up Big Brother for a 13th Edition

What better news could we ask for on the day of the Big Brother 12 Finale than Official Word that Big Brother has been picked up for the Summer 2011 Season?!

Our policy at BBDish is very Field of Dreams when it comes to BB: If they build it, we will come. :) And so they are, and so we shall.

Here's the press release from the fine folks at CBS publicity:


BIG BROTHER, the perennial summer reality hit, will return for its 13th edition next summer on the CBS Television Network.

This summer's 12th edition of BIG BROTHER is posting year-to-year increases, up +5% in viewers (7.64m vs. 7.26m), +4% in adults 18-49 (2.7/09 vs. 2.6/08), +10% in adults 18-34 (2.3/08 vs. 2.1/07) and +3% in adults 25-54 (3.2/09 vs. 3.1/09).

"Big Brother is our summer hero," said Jennifer Bresnan, executive vice president, alternative programming, CBS Entertainment. "Every year, our producers deliver innovative twists and turns, consistently evolving this proven franchise and engaging one of the most loyal and interactive fan bases on television and online."

Online, BIG BROTHER continues to grow with CBS.com seeing a +15% increase in full-episode views compared to a similar period last summer.

The special two-hour finale of this summer's edition of BIG BROTHER, when Lane, Enzo and Hayden will compete for the $500,000 prize, will be broadcast tonight (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) following the premiere of "Survivor: Nicaragua."

BIG BROTHER, hosted by Julie Chen, follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with over 52 cameras and 95 microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, the Houseguests vote someone out of the house. Tonight, the last remaining Houseguest will receive the grand prize of $500,000.

BIG BROTHER 12 is executive produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol U.S.A.

That is all. Except to say... We'll be here for it!

Hey everyone,

Great news about Season 13...good thing since we have started planning the Vegas trip.

Also I feel bad for Brit it stinks to loose all of your stuff pictures are the worst. I'm willing to bet they didn't have renters insurance. The home owner does not have to pay them anything.

I have a few errands to run before the fun starts tonight! I have to go pick up a bigger monitor for the other computer that I just got online just for tonight! Pogo be damned!! Going to the liquor store, anyone have any requests? I will be here with bells on!!! Happy finale Day my friends!!!!!

September 15, 2010 at 11:44 AM

My guess for tonight:

Hayden is going to win it all!!

Britney is going to win America's fave.

And either Lane or Enzo will win second place. (hehehehehehe)*still scratching my head on that one*

Hi Caro :)

Thanks guys :)

Poor Brit! At least she'll have $25,000 to put towards the damage after tonight!

As for the three stooges... Do we think Hayden and Lane will both take Enzo to final 2?

Hi Carolyn and all the other dishers (too numerous to name unless you're Carolyn :))

My guess is Natalie BB9.

Great news for next year. Looking forward to new critters!!

Who's hanging out for Survivor tonight??

HEHE! I didn't get got. I'm sure it will happen tonight though.

Did anyone ever walk the Blue dog? If not, it's up to you to clean it up. I wasn't here when he was scratching at the door.

I'm not giving him a bath either. No telling what he may have rolled in last night during his night on the town.

Since I didn't see Carolyn call a winner on the Item from eBay that someone carried into the house I'm having to guess there was no winner yet. I'm ready to post another guess but I don't know where to stick it.

I know I left that wide open for all of you so just go for it! :-p~

I'm going to run to the market and by some prosciutto to make a meat loin cloth for the BBDish! viewing parties tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was surprised to find out that tonight will be the final 3 instead of final 2. It makes choosing a winner that much tougher. If I don't comment again this season, I'll see everyone next summer!

You're making my brain hurt, making me try and think to answer questions!

I knew that. I've known it for how many seasons now?

And I see I missed the last of Caro for the day. Typical of me to miss the party. Only reason I get in is I have keys to the gate.

Well actually, it's not a key. I pick the lock with a GaYToR tooth.

I'm really anxious to see what Rachel will be wearing tonight!

I'm guessing something glittery, revealing, form fitting, and flashy and showy!!!!!!!! Vegas style!!!!

The odds are in my favor.

Oh, and extensions from hell again!

Hey Caro, Genie and fellow dishers!

I just read on TMZ that Britney's house burned down in a fire, police are saying it was probably caused by their grill. It was the house her and her fiance lived in.

Apparently he was inside when this happened but escaped unharmed. I shouldn't have said TMZ, her local newspaper is also reporting it.

I really think that 25G's is gonna come in handy now...

Hey Hey Hey...

Carolyn.. TMZ's article was 6:45 and yours was 5:45... you scooped them by an hour :))

September 15, 2010 at 2:04 PM  
Blogger Kristin - GettingItTogether said...

Umm totally forgot to mention how EXCITED yet totally bummed I am that tonight is the final night!

However, gotta give props to CBS for bringing Survivor on again. It definitely makes the blow a less powerful one.

Speaking of blows, last night at the Jay-z/Eminem concert at Yankee Stadium, I saw TWO fights in a matter of minutes. Grown men...pay all that money for floor seats and then decide to ruin it. Ohwell! Made a better view for me!

Michelle In Indiana....

THANK YOU!!! I realize that after I spent like 30 mins writing it and reliving those harrowing hours that Genie went to sleep and signed off and there'd be a new top post :(

Appreciate your sentiments!

Caro, glad to hear your mom is doing well. Better that she is a little upset with you for telling us all to pray for her than have her not here. I am sure you will take her yelling and be happy about it. :)

I can not get rid of the feeling in the pit of my stomach that I have for Britney and Nick. I feel terrible! I hope they are both able to enjoy this time together and worry about the petty stuff after.

I voted for Matt, but would not be disappointed if Britney won before or after the house fire. I loved Matt and Britney, but chose Matt b/c Britney won the 10K in the luxury comp.

Sorry to hear you are having to read and deal with negative comments. I hope tonight goes smoothly for ya's and no one gets angry with any results. :)

September 15, 2010 at 2:15 PM  
Blogger Toni said...

Oh and I am not sure what post I asked this question in last night or I would go back and see if anyone answered so here it goes again. :)

Why does BB have red squares on the sliding glass door? Could it really be so the HGs know it's a door? I thought it was kind of obvious that it was a door.

Carolyn, I was just on the phone with my mother, chatting about the finale tonight, and letting her know about Brit's home burning down, and other BB stuff (she's a t.v. only, but loves the juicy inside info I give her from you and your site heheheeh)

and she said to give your mom a big hug from her, too!!!! Told her about your mom taking a fall, and she said to tell you she will say a prayer for your mom and for you!!!!

The time is here to say goodbye,
for another season has come to an end.

We thank our Goddess, Miss Carolyn, and her minions of delicious sin.

Genie, Lessa, they saved our skins, with delightful posts, and puns intend.

The family is real, the time too quick, but the love is true, and shall forever stick.

Next summer shall we all return, with joyous triumph, genuine concern,

for each other, and one and all, because we are family, and have a ball.

No other site than the Dish!, can offer the entertainment Chicks! And the posters, every one, who provide us all with so much fun!

To BB13 we look ahead, and Vegas Bash, Carolyn has lead, the call forward up and beyond, to meet next year to lose our heads!

It's been fun, it's been a blast, to each and everyone at last, I pray you peace, next year come fast, and if you don't, may you kiss my azz!!!! hehehehehe
