    “Big Brother was down vs last year’s Sunday premiere”

    Good. I wish that everyone would stop watching this disgusting show.

  • Marko

    Why people watch that crap is beyond me.

  • Dakota

    There’s lot worse on TV that people watch than some narcissistic, fame-hungry 20 year olds competing in silly outfits on a heavily manipulated competition show

  • Dakota

    What’s so disgusting compared to what all the other garbage on TV? Are you referring to a contestant last year who made racist comments? That’s not what the shows about. People watch the Kartrashian for God’s sake

  • HKfan

    yeh…like Here comes Honey Boo Boo…that has to be the worst thing ever on tv.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Obnoxious behavior is one thing. Racist, bigoted and homophobic behavior/comments are a totally different thing. Just because there are other shows that are disgusting doesn’t justify promoting a show that intentional chooses contestants who exhibit this reprehensible behavior.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Assinine television shows have been broadcast since the beginning. A show that intentionally recruits and promotes contestants who exhibit racist, bigoted and homophobic behavior is disgusting.

  • Karen C

    It really wasn’t like that before last season, though.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Even worse. CBS learned that having such contestants drew a lot of free attention to the show so that kind of casting was beneficial. That’s why they have again cast such contestants.
