BIG BROTHER also saw robust social media growth, particularly on Facebook and Twitter, while on cable, BIG BROTHER: AFTER DARK, on SHOWTIME 2 is up +8%.

The special 90-minute finale of this summer's edition of BIG BROTHER, when Porsche, Adam and Rachel will compete for the $500,000 prize, will be broadcast tonight (9:30-11:00 PM, ET/PT) following the premiere of "Survivor: South Pacific."

BIG BROTHER, hosted by Julie Chen, follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with more than 52 cameras and 95 microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, the Houseguests vote someone out of the house. The last remaining Houseguest will receive the grand prize of $500,000.

BIG BROTHER 12 is executive produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol U.S.A.
