Okay, so BBAD censored and not on Showtime, and the live feeds being hosted by them....DOUBLE FAIL. Looking at 4 black screens is seriously entertaining. I would rather have fish.

Thanks for screwing up my favorite show CBS.

Worst start to BB in history.

I had trouble too. According to the feeds help page you have to set your computer time to the Pacific time zone. Guaranteed they will work for you then.

The feeds weren't a fail, moving BBAD to TVGN is the epic fail. We were promised they would remain uncensored as it was on Showtime and they are not. Given the fact TVGN is available to everyone so it can reach a larger audience is fine, the more viewers the better. But don't mislead us into thinking we'd be able to actually enjoy them without every curse word being silenced.

As for the feeds, many people had trouble initially getting them to work, me included. The advice on the Help page said to change the clock on your computer to the Pacific Time Zone, close the browser and reopen it. Doing that worked but it shouldn't have been that complicated. Then too, the feeds had alot of lag time with freezing and buffering.

The amount of audio that was muted made After Dark almost unbearable to watch. Not that I'm looking for more but didn't Showtime air 3 hours vs. the current 2 hours.

CBS STILL doesn't broadcast this show widescreen in HD. What a crock of crap in 2013!!

I wonder if Howie and Jessie would ever hook up?

When BBAD was on Showtime it aired uncensored for 3 full hours in HD. It now airs censored on TVGN for 2 hours and not in HD.

I'm already hating the editing of "objectionable words". Really, annoying.  Tongue Tongue

Yup.  TVGN welched on their promise that there would be “literally no difference between “Big Brother: After Dark” on TVGN and past season of the show previously on SHO2."  BBN has an article covering what happened

Well, I went and read the linked article. Sorry TVGN but that sounds like backtracking to me. This show airs from midnight to 2AM EDT and later in other markets. Hey TVGN, this is not prime time. I think those viewers up that late aren't going to be offended by a few curse words

No kidding.  I personally have no problem with cussing on TV (as long as the show isn't something where bad language isn't appropriate like "Barney and Friends").  In fact there are some movies that I prefer not to watch on TV because they take the cussing out and in some cases the cussing adds flavor to it that the censoring takes away ("My Cousin Vinny" for example).  Also, love to get the uncensored seasons of Hell's Kitchen on Netflix Cheesy.

The difference is due to the fact that TVGN has commercial sponsors.  Showtime did not.  This is all about money in CBS's big fat pockets.  They can get more money if BBAD has commercials but that means bleeping the cuss words.

They inspired me to watch reruns of Weeds first two shows the other night when I forgot to turn the channel. The No No hair removal system looks interesting however, I draw the line at ChristianMingle.com.
