Okay, this is gonna be a 2 part post. We'll start off with....
In a CBS press release the other day, they announced that the first eviction of Big Brother 11 will occur live on Thursday, July 16th.

And the 2nd part of this post is about the recent blog entry from Evel Dick's myspace blog.
Dick talked about how he just found out that Housecalls was canceled, and to put it mildly, he's not happy.
Here's a little snip of his blog about Housecalls:
Well, I got the call that Housecalls is done, CBS couldn't find a sponsor to support the show. They told me that last season, and to be completely honest....I thought they were full of shit. But, I guess they weren't. But that falls into the storyline of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf"
I mean, how could they have a tough time selling sponsorships for the Big Brother 10 Season? They just came off the worst rated season in the shows history in the winter edition/writers strike season of BB9. But even though it was the worst TV ratings, it was record setting numbers for Housecalls (Thanks to all of you who tuned in...and fuck you who didn't...) They only tell you the ratings for your shifts while you are doing Housecalls, well they only told me my shifts, but did tell me that across the board that they were the biggest ratings... My shifts on Wed/Thurs the ratings trippled, getting us OVER ONE THIRD OF THE TV AUDIENCE going online and watching me make all the producers sweat for their jobs every shift. But whoever was selling the sponsorships that next season for BB10 (which I was told almost didn't happen because of lack of a sponsor as well...) did a piss poor job selling the sponsorship for the show. I mean, worst TV ratings, best Housecalls ratings....That is the selling point right there...."Just wait until we have a regular audience this summer, if they can keep up that percentage, the show will break records for viewers!" Should have been their pitch. But who knows what the hell it was."
He then goes on to talk about Gretchen, host of Housecalls, for a moment:
I have mixed feelings about her, to be honest. I know it had to be hard for her and her ego to sit next to the guy she ripped on every chance she got, the season before. And here I was, talking shit, saying the things she wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole and bringing in the highest ratings HC ever had. She took it in stride for the most part, but there were times when you could cut the air with a knife the tension was so thick. I never went after her or ripped her. I always tried to show respect for her opinions and thoughts. I continually would reach out and tried to make our relationship on and off screen, better... Although I never or I should say, rarely did I ever hear from her out of the studio. But I felt we had a good relationship while we were together. And who knows what the future will hold. And I hope she will be a guest on my webcast this season.
Dick then talks about his webcasts this season on Real Player (also where you can see the cameras in the BB house) & how he's going to have it "more centered around Big Brother this season".
