CBS renews 'Big Brother'

Posted on

We aren’t done hating on McCranda but that hasn’t stopped CBS from announcing the inevitable: The network has renewed Big Brother for a 16th season.

The show, which recently celebrated its 500th episode, is averaging 7.29 million viewers and a 2.6 rating in adults 18-49, according to Nielsen. Compared to last year, the show is up 11% in viewers, and 8% in adults 18-49.

A special 90-minute finale of this summer’s installment will air Sept. 18 following the season premiere of Survivor.
