Big Brother is back
Big Brother 11 has returned. Let the backstabbing, plotting and voyeur celebration begin.
But, first on So You Think You Can Dance, I could have danced all night. Actually, I kind of did. Nearly my whole evening was spent with the fantastic two-hour edition of So You Think You Can Dance and you can read about it here. It was a much better night overall with each couple taking on two dances, but hard work and talent won't save two of the dancers from elimination tonight.
Yesterday, I swore I'd had enough of America's Got Talent but I tuned in for part of the show anyway and did see some great acts. The stand-up granny was a hoot, the trick basketball team was amazing and that little girl who sang Proud Mary, not the best singer but she looked like a star up on that stage.
At the end of the night, I did sit down to watch Top Chef Masters only to find that my DVR hadn't recorded the show. I hate when that happens but these days it's so easy to find another airing of just about anything, so I'll pick it up later this week. In the mean time, here are a few more shows you should check out tonight.
Tonight's top picks:
Big Brother 11
The series begins anew tonight and CBS has plenty of fun ways to keep up with the show in addition to the three episodes that will air each week. If you love Twitter, follow the Big Brother Scoop for daily updates from a production insider. Follow it here.
Also on the 10th, Inside Dish with Ross Mathews will launch with weekly Big Brother segments here. Ross Mathews will also conduct weekly chats with the latest evicted House Guest beginning Friday, July 24.
And finally, check out the official Big Brother website for videos, photos, polls, chat and more.
