Big Brother

Show Premise: 

Big Brother is a television reality game show. The show follows a group of houseguests living together 24 hours a day in the "Big Brother" house, isolated from the outside world but under constant surveillance with no privacy for three months. The show's debut season followed the format of most international editions of the series, in which a group of contestants live together and are voted off each week by the viewers. But that way of playing received negative critical and commercial reaction, so the format changed. Now a group of contestants, known as "houseguests," compete to win the series by voting each other off and being the last houseguest remaining.

One houseguest, known as the "Head of Household," must nominate two of their fellow houseguests for eviction. The winner of the "Power of Veto" can remove one of the nominees from the block, forcing the HoH to nominate another houseguest. The houseguests then vote to evict one of the nominees, and the houseguest with the most votes is evicted. When only two houseguests remain, the most recently evicted houseguests (generally 7) form the jury and decide which of the two would win the $500,000 prize.

Production History: 

The US version of the series officially premiered on July 5, 2000, when the original ten house guests entered the house. Produced by Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly On The Wall Entertainment, it currently airs in the US on CBS and in Canada on Global. The September 5, 2013 marked the show's 500th episode. On that same day, CBS announced it was renewing Big Brother for a 16th season that premiered on June 25, 2014. It was also the first Big Brother season to be produced and aired in high definition after a three-year behind-the-scenes upgrade of the program's technical backbone operations. It was reportedly the last show on network television to make the switch to high definition.
