Apparently Netflix are still "in talks" with Endemol in the meantime. I just can't see it being picked up by them somehow. I can't see myself going on a binge if I missed a few episodes. I do think it should be an online only show though.

I'm not sure a show like Big Brother could work on a service like Netflix, which is more for binge watching several episodes of of a series. Unless of course Netflix were to introducing live streaming, that could work for launch and eviction shows. A 24/7 live feed from the house would work better on YouTube (or similar) with (probably) not as much need to adhere to Ofcom regulations.

Netfilx is $20Bn in debt,


Do they owe $20bn to a "investment" firm in jersey by any chance? Rolling Eyes

Also all I can see in the photo is the furniture taken inside and the outdoor set packed up. I am sure this is something that is done at the end of every series to protect the equipment.

Channel 5’s ratings are really feeling the effect of not having Celebrity Big Brother on. Since the 2nd January (the day CBB usually launches) Channel 5 have not managed to get close to the rating it got on the same day the year before. For example on the 6th Jan 2018 CBB got 1.4M on the 6th Jan 2019 Do The Right Thing got just 480K.

I would imagine it's no surprise to channel 5 it would take a dip. They wanted to get rid of it off the channel asap no matter the viewing figures.

I'm enjoying the break from it. It would normally suck me in by now. I do wonder who'd be on it this year if it was on.

TBH I think CBB would have dipped anyway and I think from Channel 5's POV, it's not just about January so if the rest of the year can maintain or increase last year's audience share then getting rid of it would be seen as a good thing in the long run
