Rabid “Big Brother” fans (like me) are getting more than their usual bleeped and blurred hours on CBS three nights a week this summer.
This season, CBS’ premium-cable sister channel ShoToo will transmit live feeds from the Big Brother house 9 p.m. till midnight PT seven days a week.
Because ShoToo is premium cable, that means uncensored language and nakedness.
Both the CBS and ShoToo versions of the show premiere July 5.
I note that ShoToo is offered by both DirecTV and Time Warner cable as part of their standard Showtime packages.
The ShoToo show won’t be terribly different, of course, from the “Big Brother” feeds RealNetworks has traditionally offered 24/7 on the Internet during the contest – but one imagines ShoToo will offer better resolution (and maybe fewer blackouts?) than RealNetwork’s feeds. (Sadly, ShoToo appears to be available nowhere yet in HD.)
Viewers can still get the 24/7 RealNetwork feeds this year, but the price has risen to $14.99 per month, according to Monday morning’s Variety.
CBS also revealed that the network version of “Big Brother” would take over “Pirate Master’s” 8 p.m. Thursday timeslot, with “Pirate Master” moving to 8 p.m. Tuesdays.
CBS will also air weekly hourlong “Big Brother” editions at 8 p.m. Sundays and 9 p.m. Tuesdays (the latter immediately following “Pirate Master” installments).
