TV Robot Exclusive Article on Big Brother 10 by Mike Liebner
Wow, I must say I am really impressed this season with how good Big Brother 10 is.
The whole CBS Big Brother experience seems much better than last fall which seemed to be thrown together haphazardly and not really embraced by the producers (or the CBS Early Show).
CBS Big Brother is Great This Season!
Best show on tv this Summer!
Everything seems just right – everything from the casting, to the new live audience format for the eviction ceremonies (on Thrsday nights) to the extras we’re getting such as REGULAR appearances by Julie and the houseguests on the CBS Late Late Show with Craig Fergusan are welcome additions this season.
Craig has a blast with the houseguests! What a great idea! I’m a big fan of his and he is perfect for this!
Also back are the morning segments on the CBS Early Show each Friday with Julie Chen featuring more from the most recent evicted houseguest.
While I would prefer that the Early Show segments were LIVE the morning after, instead of recorded the night before – I guess it’s ok that they tape them the same night as they were evicted.
I must say I do prefer the old format where the evicted houseguests have had a good nights sleep (or not) to think about things instead of a continued interview minutes after getting shafted. Reflection the day after is much different than the way they must feel just minutes after getting booted form the Big Brother House!
The Late Late Show with Craig Fergusan is a guilty pleasure.

|I must confess that The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn was not one of my favorite shows to watch.|
In fact that guy Kilborn annoyed me with his arrogant demeanor and I just didn’t think he was funny. The only reason I ever watched that show with Kilborn was when there was a guest that I was interested in.
That said, it wasn’t exactly bad news when I heard that Kilborn was leaving the show. There was kind of a stir in Hollywood about who would be able to fill his shoes and if CBS whould even keep the Late Late show running. Who cared? Not me…
Time had passed and I lost interest in following what was happening and who would be hosting. I believe they did a stint of guest hosts waiting to see if someone stood out. I do remember a while back tuning in and finding a loud boisterous obnoxious Scottish guy hosting the show and I was perplexed how CBS could have settled on this Scott named Craig Fergusan, when surely half of Hollywood was trying to be considered for the gig.
I gave the show a shot and despite my initial dislike of Craig Fergusan, it didn’t take long before I warmed up to him. I had no idea he was on the Drew Crey show for 9 years prior to this gig (didn’t care for that show) so it took some getting used to the accent and his style. (more…)
