    big brother going -

    channel 4 to announce later today
    end of run -
    has this brightened your day
    not bothered myself - just thought i would put up some good news instead of sad,bad

    sequel could be little sister - only joking there :O

    Its looking more and more likely that Big Brothers time will soon at an end, with Channel 4 bosses expected to announce the show has been cancelled later today.

    Due to an appalling slump in ratings, with less than two million viewers tuning in (to watch a show that once pulled in eight million), TV bigwigs are facing the reality that the fizz has well and truly fuzzed from the Big Brother flute.

    And my faith in the British public is, in part, restored.

    Confrimed on Sky News that there is one more series and then it will be axed.

    Talking about it now.

    hurray!

    i think they focus too much on humilliation these days... the first series was good... they should put it back to that. No rules... give them nothing to do. Just 12 people hanging out.

    was that the one who won it - the guy who gave his money to charity - carpenter guy from liverpool?

    that was the only 1 i watched

    i never liked it at the start, series 6 n 7 were good watched a bit of 8, tiny bit of 9 and i dnt bother anymore :lol:

    I love it,i'd rather watch it than sport or some doco about a man with two heads:roll:

    Used to love it but its just boring now-watched the opening night show of the current one and never watched again.What they fail to understand is that the sparks REALLY flew when you mixed the ordinary with the extraordinary.

    Now they just fill the house with the biggest bunch of nutters they can and it just doesnt work. Every new contestant you can just see the researchers were thinking "this is the new jade/brian/nasty nick" etc-you cant repeat the past.

    Went downhill the day kinga mislaid the corkscrew tbh.

    I hate that those are the only 3 choices with how to spend one's free time.:whistling:

    EDIT - and it was always rubbish.

    At last - I hope this isn't a false promise! I wish all the so-called Reality programmes would go as I don't see how any of them can be real if TV cameras are present - just actors in my opinion.

    who won won the first one? with nasty nick in it?

    it was confirmed 2 years ago that they have commissioned upto and including Series 11. Once that is over, then BB is no more.

    I knew this at least years ago, as my friend works for C4, E4 etc and had knowledge prior to general public

    Not for much longer though;-)

    Great news, i'm really glad that it's going. well seems people have to suffer one more season though
    but i'm sure there will be some Big Brother type replacement to annoy us again knowing Channel 4

    I am a fan but i think it has happened too many times now. Even the housemates are getting bored. Maybe if they totally changed it and changed to something like the American version than there might be a reason to keep it. But i think it's run its course now....
