We’ve been waiting for a long time to get the Big Brother 21 premiere date over at CBS; suffice it to say that we’re happy that the news is finally out!
Today, the network confirmed that on Tuesday, June 25, the CBS show is going to kick off a two-night premiere event at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. It will air at the same time on Wednesday, and then air another show on Sunday, June 30.
Here’s where things get a little bit messier. Starting on July 10, Big Brother will move to a Wednesday – Thursday – Sunday schedule, with the Wednesday/Thursday shows airing at 9:00. Why the weird schedule from the get-go? Some of it probably has to do with the Fourth of July landing on a Thursday this year and CBS is, more than likely, trying to steer clear of that in just about every single way possible.
Ultimately, we don’t foresee there being too many changes with the format of Big Brother and, honestly, we really hope that there aren’t too many changes to it. Take, for example, the idea of All-Stars. Sure, it sounds great in theory, but at this point we’re not sure watching a bunch of already-famous people in the house is that exciting when there’s a celebrity version of the show already. (For the record, there’s no official word on the future of Celebrity Big Brother just yet.)
Speaking of Celebrity Big Brother, what can season 21 players learn from Tamar Braxton’s win? That’s a subject we first broached earlier this month, and you can take a look at it below! After watching, remember to subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube – we are going to be back with Big Brother 21 daily live feed updates on our channel and you don’t want to miss out on all the scoop.
We think there’s more appeal in watching new people have to discover the game for themselves and dealing with the highs and lows of being in the game. Sometimes sure, this does lead to boring seasons with a lot of clueless players … but this game is a social experiment. We don’t really watch just so that everyone can execute a perfect strategy. It’s instead about examining the flaws and successes of human beings in a weird, silly, and all-the-time stressful pressure-cooker environment.
More than likely, the cast for Big Brother 21 will be announced when we get around to the middle of June — and, of course, we imagine that there will be approximately one billion rumors about people who are going to be on it around then. Here’s your early reminder that a good 95% of said rumors are false, and most generated by people who want to get followers or a little bit of attention from an extremely-thirsty internet ready to lap up any and all things pertaining to this franchise.
