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! She also discussed the high school cliques ( brains, athletes, populars and off beats) and that a 13th houseguest will be sent in to help one clique. The 13th houseguest will be someone that all in the house and Craig will recognize!Details
CBS today put out another press release and here are the highlights!

Okay all you Yakksters, get ready! The Big Brother 11 Season is upon us and once again we have a tour of the Big Brother 11 House by none other than Julie Chen! (Sporting a trendy top that adorably masks and yet enhances her “bump”)……come on in to our forums to discuss!
You can see the tour here but one thing we need to point out is that while we previously reported a rumor that was going around on the internet about a mystery 3rd bedroom with a jungle theme………..the jungle theme rumor was wrong, however there is a mystery, locked 3rd bedroom that Julie says the houseguests definitely WILL NOT enjoy. We’ll get to see this mystery room on premiere night!
Plus, CBS has issued an official press release regarding the season and it’s a great read!Details
Finally! We have our Big Brother 11 Houseguests! Courtesy of The Early Show and cbs.com, here are the houseguests you are going to hate to love, love to hate, or be totally ambivalent to and let us tell you this, it sure is a MIX of people AND very exciting!

“There Goes The Neighborhood”, A New Reality Competition Series, Premieres Sunday, August 9th on CBS!!!
Will this be Big Brother Neighborhood and Family Style?
CBS press release:
THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD,” A NEW REALITY-COMPETITION SERIES, PREMIERES SUNDAY, AUG. 9 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK
In the Ultimate Social and Family Bonding Experiment, Eight Families in a Suburban Neighborhood Are Enclosed by a Massive 20-Foot Wall To Compete
for the Grand Prize of $250,000
Matt Rogers (“American Idol,” “Really Big Things”) Hosts
THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD, a new seven episode reality-competition series, premieres Sunday, Aug. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The series features eight families in a suburban neighborhood who are enclosed by a massive 20-foot wall as they compete in family-friendly games for the grand prize of $250,000.
In what promises to be the ultimate social and family bonding experiment, this neighborhood will be cut off from the outside world as it becomes family vs. family in a competition to win upgrades for their lives and their homes. With virtually no electricity and no ability to text-message, watch television or surf the Internet, these families will be forced to reconnect and work together as a team. For the duration of the competition, the eight homes will be surrounded by the daunting wall with no way in or out. Each week, another family will be voted out of the game until one victorious group remains to claim the $250,000 grand prize.Details
