Big Brother engineers own funeral?

The more I think about it, the more it seems like a delicious irony.

That downfall timeline in full:

1. Ratings fall series on series.
2. Producers remember really stupid person from previous series who qualifies as celebrity purely as their own creation.
3. Said individual, with family members, is put forward as sacrifical idiot to create controversy, thereby increasing ratings, thereby increasing revenue.
4. Controversy goes a little bit too far.
5. Sponsors pull out.
6. Large companies do not fall over themselves to take sponsors' place.
7. Revenue projections for future shows look vastly less healthy.
8. Producers quietly put energy into Deal Or No Deal instead, and Big Brother sinks in a pile of its own excrement.

I would rather watch BB than Deal Or No Deal.

Wishful thinking Buddy.

Do you know how much this show rakes in from votes at 25p and over a call/txt?

30,000 complaints won't touch the sides and programme sponsorship is chickenfeed too. Plus, don't you think "edgy, rebel" companies would be falling over themselves to get some BB action?
