It’s Hump Day yet again … You know what that means Yakksters? *NO* the word hump has nothing to do with this. Minds out of the gutter please. It’s time for the next edition of Yak’s Reality Check! We’ve got a full lineup ahead of us, so click below and let’s get started. More updates to come! Don’t forget to come discuss in our forums!Details
Afternoon Yakksters! It’s an uproar in the BB world today. CBS has made last-minute changes in a scramble to avoid the wrath of Chima. She has been threatening production that she will wreck havoc on the live show tonight if the “mystery” power is used to overthrow her nominations! So CBS’s solution? Tape the “live” show…or at least, that’s what we think. Earlier this morning, we noticed a message on the CBS website saying the live feeds will be down all day until 6PM PST/9PM EST. That leads us to believe BB has scrambled to tape tonight’s show to have the chance to edit out anything that Chima (or any other houseguest) would have done that might have gotten CBS in trouble if shown live. On top of that, we’re being told that CBS has turned away nearly 100 ticket holders for tonight’s live audience … So what do you think? Does this ruin the chance of what could have been one of the best Big Brother episodes of all-time? Does this ruin the chance of those who paid for the live feeds to not be able to see the aftermath of the Coup being used if there’s a lapse between the show’s taping & airing? What about the “VIPs” that will watch the show be taped? Come talk about it with us in our forums and our live feed updates and be sure to join us after the show for up-to-the minute updates & discussion!! Don’t forget to join Ahrean’s Show threads to keep up with the action as it happens with all of us!

Okay Yakksters, as you all know, I always do the show thread, every night it airs, I type it up for you as it happens. I had a VERY hard time doing so on Tuesday, August 11th’s episdoe though as my hands were shaking from anger.
I don’t work for CBS productions, so I have no idea how hard it would have to be to wittle down 24/7 feeds into 42 minutes of aired showtime, 3 times a week. That being said, if you’re going to show the fights, and the controversies, you would THINK you’d also show it in a way that it doesn’t seem slanted, unless you want to avoid bad publicity…….which is just what CBS did tonight.
So, you ask, what happened?Details
Julie Chen the host of the CBS reality show Big Brother 11 due to start Thursday July 9 was a guest on Craig Ferguson’s late night talk show. Wednesday July 8 this tweet was sent out: agrodner22Exclusive announcement from the “Chenbot” tonight on Ferguson!
Julie Chen exclusive announcement during the show is the first public sharing that she is having a BOY!
