Ahead of Wednesday’s Season 16 finale, CBS has officially renewed Big Brother for Seasons 17 and 18, with Julie Chen remaining as host.
This season has averaged 7.6 million viewers and a 2.7 in the coveted adults 18-49.
Said Chris Castallo, CBS executive vp alternative programming:
“Big Brother continues to be the one of the summer’s most dominant programs, and with each season, Allison and Rich produce the most twisted ways to evolve the series creatively. With its one-of-a-kind format, coupled with its passionate, socially engaged fan base, no other show comes close to duplicating it.”
