Typical beat up though. David Knox didn't even say it "could return" though. He just noted the same as I did in the other thread that the number of youtube views indicated there was still a lot of interest in the show, and that on his site "if there’s any show I continually see people asking to [be] revived it’s [Big Brother]". That's a far cry from "could return", which implies someone is actually considering it.Just ripping off a respected bloggers article.
Considering the ratings Channel 10 pull in for most shows I can’t see BB’s ratings being that much of an issue. At very least ratings would be consistent with their current slate of programming... Also relaunching with a renewed creative focus and a revised format might be just what BB needs to bring people back to the show.It would be quite amazing. But I'm not sure the audience would be there. Or at least the audience that an out of touch tv executive would expect for a show on a free to air network.
To be honest I think you’re wrong... While popular trends might have changed there are a handful of reality shows recently that have proved that reality programming can still feel authentic.Just thinking - can you imagine what the contestants would look like now? It'd be trout pouts at dawn!
Probably better off it not coming back!
Was The Real World ever really good? I've read a little about the format and kind of failed to see the difference between it and (take your pick of Georgie/Jersey Shore/etc), but perhaps the pre-internet-fame era would have been more interesting/intriguingThe relaunch of MTV’s The Real World on Facebook Watch has also throughly impressed me.
