    CBS own the broadcast rights to BBUS... They are the ones selling the right to air BB on to another network NOT Endemol Shine... I'm thinking that perhaps the sale to Nine might have had to do with I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! airing at the same time... It's likely Channel 10 didn't want a conflict between the two shows airing at the same time on the same network...

    Interesting they've gone the route that they've gone with the back yard... No doubts though that they'll still have the house on lockdown while competitions are being set up...

    So 3 days after the US, not too bad. Might give it a watch considering I recognise three of the people that are on it.

    What better way to advertise BBUSA than with a collection of BBUK logos.

    Will be interesting to see how it does - obviously a different format to what Aussies are used too so if it did take off (and I don't think it will) and lead to an Aussie revival I wonder whether they'd go down the US rule route, or more likely just decide it's the "celebrity" aspect that appeals.

    I only know Ross Matthews and Keisha Knight Pulliam (though I haven't seen her since Cosby).

    If this was airing on Ten I think they'd be testing the waters for a BBUS style revival... But it's airing on 9Go and I really think it speaks more to wanting to provide some counter programing during the the Olympics and I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! than it does for any sort of legit revival intentions on their behalf...

    The show is also airing on 9Go if a few hundred viewers watch it they will have made their money back... I do think the will find a few loyal viewers...

    I do believe there is opportunity for a BBUS style format to work for Australian audiences... It's just got to be altered in such a way that it's a blending of the two formats rather than a stark changed... Stripping the show will help include more socialized story-lines rather than game driven dynamics... Public voting that makes the viewers at home engaged in 'playing' the game... Overall great casting... And undoubtedly the live feed must be an element...

    I have no qualms about the format working as it's really not as most of the ideas behind the format are really that foreign to then it just has to be done in a way that they can understand and adapt to...
