Big Brother 12 Returns to Showtime 2

Posted on: Monday, June 14, 2010 at 8:17pm

It is now confirmed that Showtime 2 will air a live stream from the Big Brother 12 house again this season.  During Big Brother 8, Showtime 2 began airing three hours of live coverage from the Big Brother house from 12am to 3am Eastern.EW.com is reporting that Big Brother After Dark will air again this season on Showtime 2.  Big Brother fans can tune in nightly from 12am to 3am Eastern for live, un-edited coverage from the Big Brother house.

Keep your late nights wide open this summer, Big Brother fans: After Dark will be back! Showtime has confirmed that it will continue airing live, nightly feeds from the Big Brother house beginning July 8 at 12 a.m EST. This marks the fifth summer that CBS’ sister cable network has run the uncensored and uncut feeds, which have been a ratings success: After Dark has almost quadrupled the average numbers of viewers that Sho 2 typically attracts to the time period, when it usually airs movies (some of which are of the “adult” persuasion).

Of course, you could always watch the live feeds 24/7 live online if you don’t have Showtime.  Why not try the Big Brother live feed free trial and re-live the excitement from past seasons with the replay feature.  Plus catch plenty of post-BB11 content from the Rainbow Reality Reunion with past Big Brother houseguests.

    Dear Big Brother After Dark

    I have watched your show for the last three or four years. I have found it interesting and very entertaining. I was actually looking forward to this year’s installment of the program. However, as I watched Big Brother After Dark tonight, it occurred to me that I have already seen the same episode for each of the years that I watched it. And that disappoints me greatly.

    I cannot believe that you have noticed that there is a serious lack of diversity on your program. And, I cannot believe that this lack of diversity is intentional on your part. Conservatively, approximately 13% of the population is Hispanic, 12% of the population is African American, 8% of the population is Asian, and at least 17% are either gay or lesbian. That makes up at least 50% of the population. However, your show features a bunch of White, heterosexual people. Sometimes, you may have two (2) or three (3) Blacks or maybe a gay person here or there. Few have been Hispanic or Asian. But minorities have been few and far in between. And, as I am sure you know, minorities seldom win when there is a necessary majority vote, and when the numbers are stacked against them to the degree in which you stack them. A person could simply watch the first episode and guess which White heterosexual person is going to win, and then look at the final show to see if he or she was right.

    I understand that, as a television program, you are targeting certain groups of people. As an African American, heterosexual male (a minority), I probably do not fit within that target group. Therefore, I cannot continue to watch your program until I do fit in (If you are not targeting me, why should I allow myself to be targeted?). Although I love Julie, and truly believe that she is making ground breaking accomplishments in adding diversity in television, I just don’t believe that the rest of the team is on board. Think about it, if I were really interested in seeing a television program about a bunch of White heterosexuals interacting with each other, I could just turn to nearly EVERY OTHER TELEVISION SHOW ON THE CHAMMEL. Why should I make a conscious effort to watch your program?.

    I am sorry. It appeared that I ranted a bit. I only wanted to apologize because I can no longer watch your program; a program that I actually enjoy. And it saddens me. I wanted you to understand why it upsets me that minorities are excluded from what would otherwise be tremendous television.. I expect scripted programs to have a bias against portraying minority actors and actresses in a positive manner. But your show was supposed to be something different. It was suppose to allow regular people (at least 50% of whom are easily minorities) to come on and compete openly and freely. Unfortunately, the same biases that exist in scripted television seems to do so on your show as well.

    In case any one misunderstands my message, I have no problem with White heterosexuals winning. I do have a problem when only White heterosexuals can win.
