    It will still air at midnight eastern but only for 2 hours instead of 3. I'm not sure how not being on a channel like Showtime will affect editing or censorship or commercials.

    and my TV guide channel isn't in HD.....goodbye After Dark, for me.

    I'm 90% certain I'm not gonna watch BB this year unless it is in HD. There is just no excuse anymore.

    But there is nothing as American as apple pie and greed.

    Well, I'll get to watch it from time to time now, as I'm not a Showtime sub. That said, the few times I did see it, it was REALLY boring. Just a bunch of people sitting around BSing. I imagine they will either let the language go (it IS cable after all), or run it on a 7 second delay.

    On the HD front, are there ANY other shows left that aren't HD? I agree, it's time. I thought someone said last year that they thought the reason behind it was that it was more difficult to edit an HD show. Is this still the case? There are other real time shows that have multiple pre-recorded "recaps" of the last few days goings on and they are in HD. Also, the BB ripoff show from last season on ABC was in HD. I'm sorry, but if we all have cheap HD cameras availabel on our PHONES, there's no reason any TV show in 2013 shouldn't be in HD.

    crap. Hope they don't put it on a long delay in order to blank swearing and the like. Guess we'll see 10x more fish. BBADs allure is the relative lack of editing which makes for a totally different show than the network broadcast.

    Maybe they will try to make them watch their language. I think I remember them telling one season they needed to cut down on the profanity & the cast really made an effort. I think language like that breeds group participation & just isn't necessary to hear those kinds of words in most sentences.
    Yes, I know I am a prude but I don't use those words in my everyday conversations & my kids don't use them around me. I certainly don't want go hear it coming from my grandchildrens' mouths.

    I bet you say that at the beginning of every season but you still end up watching it from start to finish without any real problems...just like the rest of us.

    ;) :)

    About censorship...we'll probably just see lots of the aquarium with no sound. That seems the be their go to shot when the HG do or say things they don't want us to see.

    TW here doesn't carry TGN so no BBAD for me. That's fine, I've watched it for years ( well should say haven't watched it) on SHO2. It's pretty boring.

    BBAD really got pretty lame as it went on. After the season of the "taint slap" I don't think I ever saw anything worthy of the 3 hours every night we recorded. :( I can only guess TVG will be even tamer.

    Do they still use RealNetworks for the live feeds? Time to let that go, too.

    I remember having to use MacOS 9 compatibility mode in m new MacOS X iMac to watch the feeds one season a looooong time ago. Time for some new technology, BB!

    • all new hg, no returning cast
    • the season will be longer, 100 days
    • julie chen and the talk will film in the house 6/7
    • media day on 6/10
    • hg move in on 6/18

    I think they do that every year. The logo is different just for the promos before the show starts but then they go back to the standard logo once the show starts.

    Does that mean all the other rumors are invalid?
