BIG BROTHER is throwing the ultimate summer bash with a county fair themed special episode, Friday, August 19 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Houseguests will have the opportunity to compete for prizes, perks and power, and seven-time Grammy-winning reggae artist Ziggy Marley stops by to surprise the houseguests with a performance of his single "Weekend's Long," from his new self-titled sixth studio album.
BIG BROTHER airs Sundays and Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), and Thursdays (9:00-10:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT), featuring the live eviction show hosted by Julie Chen.
BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 87 HD cameras - seven more than last year - and more than 100 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week someone will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize of $500,000. BIG BROTHER is produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol Shine North America.
