America’s Choice: The best they can do is let us decide what nasty food to have the houseguests eat each week? Yawn.
Broadcast delays: Sorry, but thanks to the potent combination of the internet and CBS’ own live feeds, any fan of the show not only knows days in advance what’s going to happen, but the real story as opposed to what the editors try and sell us. And trust me, the real story is always more interesting.
Bad casting: As our friends over at howrudeareyou.com pointed out in THIS POST, by filling the house with volatile, unlikeable people, that doesn’t give viewers many “root-for” options. (Thank God for Jordan!)
Scheduling: Ever since CBS moved the weekend episode from Saturday to Sunday, the show is regularly pushed back when sporting events run over. This weekend’s golf game caused the show to run 20 minutes over on the East Coast, meaning many viewers who tape the show found the all-important, episode-ending nomination ceremony being cut off.
Boredom: The show’s “been there, done that” feel is so contageous that even the contestants seem to be walking through the entire thing. If they’re not interested, why should we be?
