  1. There's not enough time for the strategizing, scheming and emotional breakdowns that make the three-times-per-week "Big Brother" a guilty pleasure.

    Just think of There Goes the Neighborhood as another brick in the (reality-competition) wall--one that's frankly becoming a bit of an eyesore.
  3. It is such an utterly cynical experiment, troublesome on so many levels (there are children involved, watching adults cry because their friends have "banished" them) and no matter how often people say "it's just a game," even without a big chunk of change on the line, family competitions are rarely bloodless.

    CBS' new social-experiment-on-a-budget-series, is one of those occasionally interesting summer replacement series that proves once more that "real" people will do anything to get on TV.

    I'll be honest. I like Survivor. I like The Amazing Race. I'll even watch Big Brother if I happen to be doing nothing else when I'll be honest. I like Survivor. I like The Amazing Race. I'll even watch Big Brother if I happen to be doing nothing else when it's on. Because I just like social games that much, I'll tolerate the stupid melodrama. Reality shows like this though are just designed around the mean spirited whims of the producers. The participants should be embarrassed to have agreed to this. Expand

    This has to be the worst idea EVER for a game. CBS took friends and families and bet their futures together as friends and families for This has to be the worst idea EVER for a game. CBS took friends and families and bet their futures together as friends and families for crappy ratings. I am very disappointed in the show and think that they should wake up and fire the guy that gave them the idea for this crappy show. Expand
