Is Big Brother 12 Going To Be The Last?

Scouting around the ‘net, in anticipation for yet another season of our glorious summer staple, Big Brother, I found this little tidbit for y’all to peruse. Keep in mind, nothing is confirmed with CBS/BB either, this is all speculation and as the source site states as well, the UK version of Big Brother will be concluding after this next season, so there may have been confusion with that. And as always, you can join us in our forum to discuss!

So, in a recent interview with BuddyTV, James Rhine has stated that there was a rumor circulating amongst BB veterans that the 12th season would be the last. The network hasn’t made any statement regarding this, and one would think it would obviously depend on the ratings for this upcoming season as to whether or not it would be renewed. Considering the aridness of television during the summer, I would think that something that’s been going on for as long as Big Brother has would be renewed. What would CBS fill in all those timeslots with?

Bret Michaels Rumored to replace Simon on American Idol

[singlepic id=248 w=120 h=200 float=right]Since performing on the finale of American Idol in May, Bret Michaels has now emerged as the new favorite to replace Simon Cowell as an American Idol judge, who has now left an open seat at the judges table after nine seasons. The show, and Simon himself, took note of the reception Bret Michaels received that night, and is now looking a bit closer at him, sources say.

Michaels had said that he ignored the advice of his MDs, and did the show anyway, performing a duet with 3rd place finalist Casey James. Michaels, who as you know has been in and out of the hospital recently is still recovering from his near fatal brain hemorrhage and recent stroke, received a standing ovation from the Idol crowd when he came out crooning “Every Rose has it’s Thorn.”
