    No episode last night and the only one in the guide is the finale on Wednesday. Was this the plan? I thought there was an episode planned for last night.

    Sunday was 9/11 specials. Which was planned.

    Wednesday is the finale.

    Also I doubt they wanted to go up against Sunday night football on opening weekend.

    There is only one episode left, it's a 90 minute show on Wednesday.

    I understand why they moved the finale to Wednesday with the day it fell on but to move the show up till 9:30pm so they can pull in the Survivor crowd is quite craptastic.
    Listen CBS I will watch Survivor and will watch BB but I will not watch 3 hours of your crap television till 11pm at night so I can see who america likes best - I always hate the final broadcast of Big Brother some of the worst television year after year.

    Thanks for making an almost unbearable season finale into a must miss because your programming times suck.

    "3 hours" of network TV is really about 2.25 hours of real time, likely less (skip "previously on", opening credits, closing credits, etc).

    You're recording it, avoid spoilers on the net and watch it the next day.

    (You act like 11pm is late?!?!?!)

    Nope I don't think many people do ;)

    Got 5 - want to buy one? :p



    1) 3 hours of network TV is 2 hour and 9 minutes of actual show from my own investigations over the years
    2) Avoid spoilers on the net, ok no big deal, but for finales not so easy they are on TV, radio and worst others in the office :eek:
    3) 11pm is late, I go to bed by 9:30-10pm weeknights
