Perhaps Big Brother believed that a season of new twists and temptations was just the ticket to old and new viewers tuning in, maybe it would have been the case if the network/show producers had the slightest integrity. As this season has shown, CBS will do and allow anything for ratings, only they may have gone too far this time and may very well lose the majority of their loyal viewers, and surely no new viewers would want to tune in to see that train wreck!
The first (and certainly most detrimental) mistake that CBS/Big Brother execs. made was in fixing things so that conveniently the loser Paul was brought back into the game. He had his shot at playing Big Brother already and it makes the new players look as if they were duped straight out of the gate, not to mention it being an insult to viewers. Then they allow obviously unstable people into the game, all for ratings and attempt to make viewers believe that “it’s how the game is played”, many have used the word “bullying” in describing Josh’s behavior. It’s painfully clear that many of the so called competitions are tailored to certain players abilities (or lack of).
All Big Brother execs and CBS have done is to insult the viewers they do have, rather than make sincere attempts to hang onto them dearly. They need to be reminded that the viewers make or break any show, happy viewers, successful show. They must understand that while it’s a delicate balance, they can have a scrap of integrity and still have drama and satisfied viewers that will tune in each week.
Odd how things “played out” so that Paul was safe for so long (supposedly it was a choice viewers made), yet by allowing the consequence, twist and temptation, Cody and Jessica were guaranteed a ticket out the door pretty much. Funny how 1 (ONE) poll claims that Paul is a viewer favorite, however if you actually read many of the comments viewers post(ed), they want him gone as much as Josh, IF NOT MORE. Of course I just read a poll that stated that 78% of those polled want Josh gone based on his bullying alone! Most realize that he’s Paul’s puppet and that he’s the one sullying up the game.
Get a clue, please the viewers you do have before they’re gone too, by the look of it the network can’t afford that. Stop allowing players into the game that are unstable and abusive, all in the name of media negative attention. Stop beating dead horses and only allow return houseguests if it’s a special like Big Brother returning Losers! The cast this season was very boring, not in the least entertaining, and downright offensive! Sure I know that you want drama and trouble but try a different approach because personalities like Paul’s, Ales’s, Josh’s and Christmas’s while they can do the devious, two faced, sneaky, manipulative, assinine antics, they also drive viewers far and away.
