    good riddance Mike Boogie....

    by Michael Lunney

  • Aug. 23, 2012, 4:43 p.m. CST

    I can't see Boogie surviving the vote

    by jim

    However, if the mystery box comes into play he might luck out and remain in.

    Oh BB is ever so rigged...

    by Homer Sexual

    This will be the second time the producers have blatantly tampered with results, after nonsensically cancelling the elimination the week the coaches entered the game. That happened to save Frank. Then Frank cheated in the POV, but it was ok because Grodner and Co want to keep Frank and Boogie. So who knows what will happen tonight, but I bet Boogie stays. Not that I will see it because I quit watching back when the coaches re entered, because cancelling the eviction was just toooo much...

  • my apologies to Keir Dullea in 2010....

    What the hell is going on with Louie's ratings?

    by iamnicksaicnsn

    I thought last week's ep was still pretty awesome. Maybe a little predictable, but well put together. I feel like the loss of his love interest from seasons 1 & 2 has taken from the narrative a bit. Gave him a goal that is somewhat lacking this season. Still one of the best shows on tv right now.

  • Aug. 23, 2012, 6:53 p.m. CST

    And what did you mean by Misfits Herc?

    by iamnicksaicnsn

    Misfits has not aired yet.

  • Aug. 23, 2012, 8:08 p.m. CST

    CBS is hot to keep Frank in the house?

    by Hercules

    I think CBS can weather his eviction. He's not exactly Bob Hope. Now if Britney goes home, that would put a crimp in the season's entertainment value.

    Britney and Ian's goodbyes to Boogie? GOLD!

  • Aug. 23, 2012, 9:08 p.m. CST

    Herc, you are correct.

    Brit's phone bit was better than ANY Mike ever did.

    It wasn't a spoiler when I posted it, merely accurate prognostication. It was the headline of your post that constituted a spoiler.

    Forget Bible Challenge (please). I propose Geek Challenge

    by tangcameo

    Kind of like Jeopardy but all the questions are obscure only-true-geeks-would-know in categories like Star Wars, Star Trek, manga, Dr Who, cult classics, Monty Python, etc etc. Obscure questions, what's the next line, etc. Maybe Herc could host (with green plaid sportsjacket to match that hair and one of those Bob Barker microphones).

    Frank won it. Should be an interesting week

    BEST BB EVER - wow so entertaining!

    DVR Gold! Going to save entire episode on computer. Brit/Ian/Boogie were amazing!

    With Frank

    by jim

    as HOH, I expect him to put up Shane & Dan; if one wins the veto, he can replace him with Britney or Ian. He has options. Unless the mystery box comes into play, it's all but a done deal that the Quack Pack (I feel ridiculous typing that) loses a member. Poor Ian - he wins HOH but doesn't get to enjoy the perks the position comes with. Don't quite get the logic of voting out Ashley over Joe. She has a bad back and, let's face it, isn't the cleverest cookie in the jar. Sure, Joe isn't exactly a force to be reckoned with in challenges either, but he's still more likely to take one over Ashley.

  • Aug. 24, 2012, 12:02 p.m. CST

    but with Frank

    by Loosejerk

    Wouldn't he be an idiot to do so? The Quack Pack now more than ever should demonstrate some control over the household. Tell Frank that he needs to put up Joe and Jenn and possibly they will let him not be a target until both are out and get a chance against their alliance. I don't seen how Frank can pull off lasting 2-3 more weeks without dealing with the Q.P.

  • Aug. 24, 2012, 12:48 p.m. CST

    I can't see the Quack Pack

    by jim

    not getting rid of Frank first chance they get, and I have to think Frank knows this. Regardless of what he does this week, I can't see him not being put up next week if a QPer wins HOH. By putting up both Dan & Shane, he creates a rift in that alliance. The Pack's best bet is to stick with Shane who has a better record in challenges (and their best chance at taking back the HOH). Unless Dan goes quietly, which I doubt he would do, it will cause some bad blood amongst them. Danielle might very well stay loyal to Dan; if she does and Frank can convince Jenn & Joe to vote out Dan, there's nothing Ian & Britney can do to save Shane. (is that right, or am I forgetting someone?) Besides, regarding Frank, why bother with deals and alliances? He could do what he's been pretty much doing all Summer- alternate between winning HOH and the Veto.

  • Aug. 24, 2012, 1:04 p.m. CST

    oops

    by jim

    re: "if she does and Frank can convince Jenn & Joe to vote out Dan, " I meant "if she does and Frank can convince Jenn & Joe to vote to keep Dan, there's nothing Ian & Britney can do to save Shane".

  • Aug. 24, 2012, 2:36 p.m. CST

    I only watch the Showtime 2 coverage, and am totally lost...

    by TopHat

    ...how come Frank gets a gift basket and gets to sleep in that nice room when Ian was the one who won that quiz thing to become HOH? I thought Frank just won Veto power to get himself off the block, winning that ball pit competition. How is HE head-of-household?

  • Aug. 24, 2012, 3:01 p.m. CST

    Ian's entire reign as HOH was during last night's episode

    by jim

    Once the vote is done, he is done as HOH and they compete to crown a new one.

  • Aug. 24, 2012, 3:25 p.m. CST

    Ahhh...

    by TopHat

    Thanks.

    re: Big Brother Is "Rigged"

    by SutureSelf

    <p>No game show is rigged. While I have never participated in a personality-driven "reality" game show like BB or Survivor or Amazing Race, I have been a contestant on several quiz-type shows. They are so tightly controlled regarding what contestants may or may not do and they are so jealously protective of the integrity of the outcome shows' competitions that it is unimaginable to me that similar protections would not be in place on the "reality" game shows.</p> <p>Since the quiz-show scandals of the fifties, it has been a violation of federal law to fix a game show. Unless the producers of BB want to visit the graybar hotel, they will keep the game squeaky cllean, with the winners determined through honest competitions and votes that are influenced by nobody at CBS.</p>
