On Five: http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2011/apr/05/big-brother-to-return-this-year
Yeah, their idea of a surefire hit is a show cancelled due to viewer ennui less than a year before.
I cant criticise it, its provided me alot of televisual entertainment over the years
At least on Channel 5 it's tucked safely out of my way though.
Also, starting in September is a bit weird. But come to think of it, I'd quite enjoy one where they're all kept in over Christmas.
is that they might feel less pressured by ofcom than C4 were at the end.
Still, it'll almost definitely be terrible.
That would mean an almost continuous run of Big Brother programmes – running night after night – on Channel 5 from August to January.
From that link
The Daily Star Sunday said that top of the wanted list was Mohamed al-Fayed, while a big money offer would be made to troubled US actor Charlie Sheen, with female targets including Amy Childs from The Only Way is Essex and Prince Harry's on-off girlfriend Chelsy Davy.
Probably a good idea for them, if they get big enough names it'll draw in casual viewers.
