Um, you do know that's a fake article written by David Knox because it's April 1st, right?
I had already seen way too many April Fools online before I came across this article so I was onto it right away. He did play it very well though, and so many of the comments were in favour of a Big Brother return. Ten is rating so badly now that anything is worth a try, just do it like the article says - except for the Dreamworld part. And keep the bit where Peter Helliar throws brussell sprouts at Fitzy and BreeI was very excited. Bummer now. I was looking for Alex's name but it wasn't there. Gave me hope.
And the Mike Goldman part... While I don't think "back to basics" is where they should be going, if that's the direct they want to move in they might as well wipe the slate clean and leave all remnants the past behind...Ten is rating so badly now that anything is worth a try, just do it like the article says - except for the Dreamworld part.
But Nine made it all kiddie friendly, which meant audiences missed out on a lot. Although, it has to be said, Ten either hedged its bets, or didn't know who it was aiming the show at from the start by scheduling it at 7pm and then later selling a season of "young, sexy and single" housemates. Very confusing, given their live audiences had previously been full of 10yos in bunny ears doing the bum dance. Maybe it would have turned out very differently if they had aired it in the 8.30 MA time slot from the get go.To be fair format wise Nine didn't do a bad job - basically kept the basic format but added new elements like the Superpower (which worked really well IMO) and then as a season twist the Halfway House. However it was the basics around production, live streaming, online engagement and scheduling that really let them down, plus the wrong choice of host.
