World Brief

Network Ten will air a seventh season of Endemol Southern Star’s “Big Brother” next year.

” ‘Big Brother’ is an enormous, enduring franchise; no other program delivers the ratings share among viewers under 40,” said Ten’s TV topper Grant Blackley.

Skein saw a lift in viewers in 2006 when two housemates were kicked off the show for an alleged sexual assault.
