  • Ken Tucker

    Fascinating, frustrating, and a little frightening.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Julie Salamon

    That's the seamy beauty of CBS's "Big Brother": voyeurism without guilt. [7 Jul 2000]

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    I know "Survivor." I watch "Survivor." You, "Big Brother," are no "Survivor." [7 Jul 2000]

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • David Zurawik

    In all but one or two cases, if I were seated with one of these people on a plane, I'd ask to be moved next to a crying baby or a drunk. What CBS has done here is cast this house with people who resemble the stock types we have come to know from prime-time sitcoms and dramas for 50 years. [6 Jul 2000]

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    So far, and that's an important qualification, watching "Big Brother" is only slightly more exciting than watching a drugstore surveillance tape. One week in, CBS's five-nights-a-week series remains slow, self-conscious, and visually sterile. [13 Jul 2000]

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Terry Kelleher

    Actually watching Big Brother five nights a week (total air time: 3½ hours) seems like the entertainment equivalent of enduring gavel-to-gavel convention coverage on C-SPAN.

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Mike Duffy

    Offers only slightly more entertainment appeal than viewing a test pattern. [10 Jul 2000]

    Detroit Free Press Full Review
  • Ann Hodges

    Big Brother is that deadliest of TV sins: It's a Grade D bore. [8 Jul 2000]

    Houston Chronicle Full Review
  • Jonathan Darman

    The cast is dull, the concept is lame and the house that Ikea built is cheap and creepy. The amazing thing is that a show so obviously flawed could have been the source of so much hype. [15 Jul 2000]

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Laura Fries

    "Big Brother" debuted Wednesday night with all of the style and drama of a Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol commercial. ... Five days a week of people in a cramped house full of Ikea furniture is like a bad college flashback. [10 Jul 2000]

    Variety Full Review
  • David Bianculli

    The difference between "Big Brother" and its more successful high-concept CBS predecessor, "Survivor," is the difference between storytelling and rambling. [14 Jul 2000]

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    Airing five nights a week and featuring 10 strangers - not to mention insufferable hosts Julie Chen and Ian O'Malley - this will fill our screens for the next three months. Unless we happen to leave the set turned off. Which, judging from last night, might be advisable. [6 Jul 2000]

    Newsday Full Review
  • Tim Kiska

    It's clear that this program is a compendium of every irritating cliche ever to assault a defenseless TV viewer. [7 Jul 2000]

    The Detroit News Full Review
  • Joel Brown

    'Big Brother' ... is such a demeaning, depressing exercise that everyone involved ought to be lashed to one of the Pentagon's defective 'Star Wars' missiles and rocketed out over the Pacific, never to be heard from again, except by the sharks. [2 Aug 2000]

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Hal Boedeker

    So far, Big Bro is a big bore. ... In devoting so many hours to amateurs, CBS reduced its prime time to bad home movies. [11 Jul 2000]
