The Question, Wednesday 6/26/13: Will Big Brother Get Bigger?


Tonight CBS enters phase two of its turning on of the summer lights with its three-night spectacular Big Brother. Last season finally snapped Big Brother's improbable growth streak, though at least some of the blame probably belongs with the Summer Olympics derailing the show's early weeks. There's no such excuse this year, though it does get to deal with Fox's potent MasterChef in the Wednesday 8:00 hour. Will Big Brother get bigger? That's The Question for Wednesday, June 26, 2013.


Big Brother Last Season
2.6 (premiere, Thu 7/12/12, -7% y2y)
2.13 (Wednesday average, -24% y2y)
2.15 (Thursday average, -19% y2y)
2.19 (Sunday average, -19% y2y)
2.5 (finale, Wed 9/19/12, -14% y2y)
The War of 18-49

My guess is that Big Brother as a franchise is probably healthier than it appeared last season when it was one of the few originals that had the Olympics head-to-head. I also doubt that it's as healthy as during its growth seasons. I say this show will settle into roughly a Survivor pattern of approximately league average declines. That means this premiere should drop in the 10% range from last year's 2.6.

Over/Under: 2.35.

I come here everyday whatching you all playing that game and would love to join you, but I don't know when would be that possible? : ) I noticed you do some summaries once upon some time and assume it means the 'season' is over and new players can join? or istn't this all that complicated? :p

Spot is on holidays this week, so I doubt you will be getting an answer. I would assume you can just come and join whenever you want though. I know that is what I did when I found the site!

I was hoping anyone would answer, not Spot necessarily : ) thanks!
If I can start just like that, I would go with OVER as I can't see BB dropping as low as 2.3 yet.

The early start makes this an interesting guess. Besides its one winter season run, has Big Brother ever not started in July? Either way, I still think a debut over a 2.35 is possible. I'd say OVER at 2.5.
