CBS Cuts The Big Brother Feeds Till Tomorrow Night - September 7, 2010

Big Brother fans are having an angry day after the live feeds shut down earlier today. CBS has shut down the Big Brother live feeds until after tomorrow night's episode. This message has been shown on the feeds to viewers: "We're sorry, but CBS is blocking the live feeds from Tuesday until after the Wednesday show". There is talk that the eviction episode will be taped tonight. So, with the feeds being shut down, what does that mean that we'll miss? I won't spoil anything obviously but there isn't likely to be any drama with who is going home on the next episode. It has been decided. Will we be missing the first part of the final HOH competition? It really sounds possible. The live feeders could be cut off on what is the deciding part of the game. The endurance part one is usually good and draws feed viewers. Now, I assume that is being cut out. I am trying to remember if part two ever airs live on the feeds and I don't believe it does. Part three obviously is on the live show. If the feeds are going to be cut out on this final competition, what has CBS really left all of us feed viewers to watch? I have to think that there are a lot of people canceling feeds today. Based on what I'm seeing online today, that is what is happening. On feed one, they are replaying previous episodes of Big Brother After Dark to fill the time with some sort of Big Brother programming for fans to watch. They appear to be airing from the beginning based on who I'm seeing in the house. So, fans are shut out until tomorrow night's episode. CBS definitely isn't making any fans out of people today.
UPDATED: 10:00pm
SPOILER ALERT on the eviction. First, it appears that Big Brother After Dark will be a taped episode with footage that was recorded earlier today. So, that rumor appears to be true. Second, the eviction has taken place. Reports started coming from Twitter and are now popping up on other sites. Britney has been evicted from the Big Brother house. The first part of the HOH competition is taking place tonight. Real has been scrambling trying to get programming online to keep the feed viewers entertained. Believe me, there are a lot of people canceling their feeds today over what has happened with us being blocked. It's like getting to the championship game and then having the first half blocked from being viewed. Lots of frustration from Big Brother fans today.
