Juliechen_bigbrother_290 CBS has announced that the normally-one-hour “Big Brother” finale will now be TWO FULL HOURS!

I would wager a guess that actually means 90 full minutes and a half-hour of needless filler. But maybe I’m bitter after sitting through so many three-hour “Survivor” or “Bachelor” finales. You can only see the are-the-eliminated-Survivors-dead-why-are-you-crying-burn-down-the-camp montage so many times, people.

From the CBS press release: With the show’s on-air and online audience growing, CBS has expanded

the finale for BIG BROTHER, live, Tuesday, Sept. 15 (9:00-11:00, ET/tape

delayed PT).  The series will cap

its 11th season with a live two-hour broadcast where the winner will be revealed

and the houseguests will then tell-all about their explosive summer for a

special season-ending event!

“Tell-all?” Tell-all, my hiney. Is Jessie going to “tell-all” about his “platonic” relationship with Lydia? Hmph.
