Shock. Horror. Channel Four don't axe Big Brother
Is anyone surprised at all that Channel Four bosses have decided not to take Big Brother off the air ? As a commercial channel looking to make money, indeed as much money as possible, there was no chance at all of Channel Four taking it the air.
Channel Four say there will be a review. One has to ask why now ? After all, bullying and victimisation has been a staple part of Big Brother since it started, but this has been exaggerated and magnified in the last four series' of Big Brother, with it seemingly getting worse and worse each series.
So what is Channel Four going to investigate ? Racism ? There hasn't been any before this series. So what ? I feel this is just a ruse so that Channel 4 can be seen as being responsible. Big Brother provides 7% of Channel 4's advertising revenue per annum. Perhaps there will not be a new Celebrity Big Brother next year, but you can bet come the summer, the usual bunch of misfits, depressives with serious personality disorders will be back on our screen, and Channel Four will rake in the cash again.
