Watch from 5:00 onwards

She talks about it for a good two minutes, it's interesting how a lot of Americans think that Big Brother is huge over here I guess CBB is quite popular but normal BB no

Well, it is extremely iconic in terms of British TV, even if it's not a big deal nowadays like it used to be in terms of viewership. But yeah, in terms of ratings BBUS is bigger than BBUK right now so it's funny to see her talking about how nobody cares about BBUS anymore but BBUK is huge.

That said, I do think BBUK is more iconic to UK pop culture than BBUS is to US pop culture, personally. Of course, never having visited the US I could be way off.

But yeah, quite surreal seeing BBUK being talked about on Wendy Williams' show.

I get where you're coming from, America has so many other big shows and a lot more variety. If you take BB3-BB7 UK for example, it was probably the biggest (if not the most talked about) show in the UK

BBUK is more watched than BBUSA. The Us has a television population of 140 million against the Uk's 60 million.

Good point.

Big Brother ratings in the golden years were nowhere near as big as shows like X Factor, and I'm A Celebrity were back then and even now, unless it was the launch or final of a series, which would get around 7-10m.

But Big Brother was an iconic part of noughties television. Everyone was talking about it. Back in 2004, I don't remember anyone talking about I'm A Celebrity - unless it was about Katie and Peter, but everyone or most were talking about BB5. And BB5 got under half the ratings IAC got.

Big Brother is still popular over there, it averaged 7 million viewers and was topping the ratings the nights it aired last year.

7 million sounds like a lot but it's not, as the population of America is far bigger than the population of the UK. 7 million in America is equivalent to about 1.5 million in the UK.

So last year's BBUSA was on par with BB15. But BB15 was a lower rated series. On average, these days BBUK has a loyal audience of about give or take 1.7m.

So realistically BBUK these days is doing slightly better than BBUSA. Not to mention CBB is almost double the ratings of the civilian, so that beats it by a margin.

TMZ and Wendy Williams discussing CBB? Dina could be one of the smartest signings in a long time.

BB really isn't all that popular in the US. It never was because Survivor launched the same time as BB1 and destroyed it in the ratings (the finale averaged 52 million viewers.) BBUS has a cult following at best.

BBUK was never a ratings smash either tbh.

It only reached the heights of 10 million once or twice.

21 minutes of drivel, tittle tattle and gossip. How do these shows get made?
