BAD NEWS : The return of BB and CBB in near

Sorry to break the bad news people
The latest series kicks off on June 5. It will be followed straight away by a new celebrity version of the show.
I wonder if PN will be sponsoring CBB this year?,
In my opinion shows like this should be banned as they serve no purpose at all.
Regards
Mike

Not my cup of tea but some people must watch them or they wouldn't be shown and certainly wouldn't attract advertisers.

I don't know why non-fans waste their time commenting, there's plenty of other channels to choose from. Some will even find QVC more entertaining  Huh

There are a lot of Radio Channels on SKY too !
My radio reception is rubbish, on AM, FM & DAB so SKY is a good alternative for me
Sometimes BB Radio is good, sometimes not.

The good news - perhaps Plusnet aren't getting involved this time http://community.plus.net/blog/2012/05/26/watch-the-new-plusnet-tv-ad/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_med...

And as mentioned previously by a member of PN staff posted on this Forum, can't find it now...

A lot of money best spent on keeping current loyal customers than trying to gain new ones, IMHO.
I wonder what the cost per new customer as a result of sponsoring CBB was ?
If it was more than £200, it was a wasted investment.

I don't watch much TV, but it was harsh for Channel 4 to dump it and to announce it would be axed.
And then I got excitied that I woudn't have to hear about it ever again.
Followed by Channel 5 resurrecting it. Thanks Channel 5.Roll eyes

OFCOM has received 1000 complaints from viewers of the programme regarding comments by a male contestant about a female contestant, multiple complaints have also been made made to the sponsor about the following...
Quote
Conor - Get your epilator, stick it up your ass. We don't give a f**k, cause i'm gonna (inaudible). I'll give her a fun game, i'll stick this up her f*****g m**ge the stupid b*****d. I'll give her a f*****g epilator (pushes brush upwards)/ I'm gonna play loadsa pranks on her.
Because she's a f*****g piece of s**t. I don't care if i get pulled up to the diary room.

Ashleigh - What if she chucked water on ya

Conor - I'd punch her in the face. Just knock her out (punches the air) I'd say, get up off the mat you piece of s**t.

Viewers are angry Conor has not been removed from the show.
Before the series started last year's winner of Big Brother stated on a Channel 5 programme, the producers don't look after contestants and 4 contestants from taht series have attempted suicide.
What the heck was Plusnet thinking sponsoring such a programme.

Why do so many viewers lose the ability to change channels or even turn it off if they don't like or are offended by what they see?

Looks like some people have found the off button, the series started with 2.6 million and is now heading towards 1 million.

You do wonder how people who know the shows history, continue to view and are angry by what they see.

More angry as it stopped a number of shows mid season from playing that I use channel5.com to catchup on, 6 & 7 episodes into a season and they stopped them in favour of this rubbish, they next air on freeview TV next year some time.

Re: BAD NEWS : The return of BB and CBB in near

I can understand the point of CBB as it can be interesting if they talk about themselves.
But BB? Just as well sit in the garden and watch the neighbours.
