Big Brother’s live eviction shows will merge into one show – after bosses decide to push back Stand By Your Man
Last Week, Big Brother’s first live eviction aired in two halves – with the first show airing at 9pm until 10pm, and the second airing at 10:40pm until 11:10pm. This was to accommodate new dating show Stand By Your Man which started on the same night,and was broadcast between the shows.
Instead, the show will return to the format it followed last year with a 90 minute eviction show airing from 9pm until 10:30pm. Big Brother’s Bit on the Side will then air immediately afterwards at 10:30pm.
The reason for the change isn’t clear, but it could be due to the poor overnight ratings the shows got last week, or the poor reception to the dating format.
