Big Brother Is Coming

I saw a news story last night saying the Big Brother television series is coming to Thailand… rather I saw the Big Brother logo and Oui told me what they said.

I’m kind of excited, even though I won’t understand anything that’s said, and I hope they put the show on a free-to-air channel rather than cable (because I don’t have UBC).

I remember that pathetic excuse for entertainment (that I never actually watched because it was on UBC only), Academy Fantasia. The problem with that show was that they let the contestants out of the house. One of the best things about Big Brother is that these people have no contact with the outside world.

    Big Brother is SO rubbish, but I always get hooked on it. It’s a sad, SAD addiction.

    I feel the same. Back home, I used to vow to avoid it every season but I would still get sucked in eventually.

    Now, I’ve accepted that I’m gonna watch it so I don’t bother making any promises :)

    The dynamics of social interaction for Big Brother Thailand will be predictably limited to the following emotional displays and various combinations thereof:
    1. greng jai
    2. forms of saving face
    3. seething passive aggression
    4. piercing female screeches
    5. outbursts of passive aggression
    6. gay piercing screeches; and
    7. more greng jai

    In connection with that, Big Brother has come here in the Philippines tagged as “Pinoy Big Brother” it is aired daily on TV(free channel), Internet and Cable (the last two requires payment, 24 hour-basis). It is shown in the Philippines’ leading and largest media network ABS-CBN – it helped the show to be widely recognized and enjoyed the fact that it is shown on ABS-CBN and its UHF channel Studio 23. Pinoy Big Brother also helped other ABS-CBN shows in its primetime block pull all their ratings up by an average of 4.8% However, ABS-CBN’s rival network, GMA-7, spread black propaganda against the show (they’ve been doing this anti-PBB campaign since April when PBB started its “Housemate Search”) that resulted to PBB’s one day suspension by the Movie and Television Regulatory and Classification Board (MTRCB) which made fans gone wild and angry over the Board’s descision. Pinoy Big Brother is receiving a good audience share at 51.7% and with an average rating of 44.7% (national rating). Hope you can have a glance of our version and as well to me on yours likewise. Have a nice day.
