Celebrity Big Brother coming to CBS this fall for first time ever

Celebrity Big Brother coming to CBS this fall for first time ever”

The special winter edition is expected to feature multiple episodes per week during a "concentrated" run and will include Head of Household and Power of Veto competitions and live evictions.

"#Celebrity Big Brother" will come to CBS this winter. "It's easier to be a victor in the summer than it is in the fall and winter", she said.

Now that Big Brother has established itself as a nationwide phenomenon and a ratings hit for the summer months, it's only natural that a celebrity edition be put to the test. It was so early on that I remember someone in the meeting said, 'We've got to get Paris Hilton.' I think Roseanne Barr was intrigued but then fell out and we ended up not doing it. However, they eventually decided not to move forward with the plan.

Julie revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that she had a conversation with her husband and CEO of CBS, Leslie Moonves, about adding a US celebrity version of Big Brother, and admitted the network has considered the idea since Season 2 of Big Brother, however things never came together. The CBS-owned cabler Pop TV will again carry the live companion show "Big Brother After Dark", offering an unfiltered feed of the goings-on in the house during the late-night hours. Whoever casts Dancing With the Stars does an incredible job.

Meehan: We're just starting discussions and we're looking for people who are going to be fun.

"It's been explored again as recently as a few years ago and the economics just didn't make sense", Chen says.

Julien Chen: Tonya Harding. Sean Spicer and Melissa McCarthy, which will never happen. Andy Cohen is a superfan, hilarious and speaks his mind. And who is the one who acts insane every now and then? I don't know if I want him. After all, what's Big Brother without live feeds?

CBS have confirmed that the reality show that we can't believe they didn't have is now launching later this year.
