Big Brother


Big Brother is seen by many as the original reality TV show. Starting out in 2000 on Channel 4, the series built up audiences of up to five million viewers all eagerly watching “normal” people in a purpose built house with cameras watching their every move. Now on Channel 5, the show has seen a massive ratings drop to less than a million, but the celebrity version of the show fairs much better at about 2.2 million.
