Monday, Aug 8th @ 9:01 pm AMERICA'S CHOICE VOTING ON BIG BROTHER 6 LEADS TO A RECORD BREAKING WEEKEND FOR CBS.COM WITH OVER 57 MILLION PAGEVIEWS
On Friday, August 8, CBS.com recorded its highest traffic day in 2005 with almost 21 million pageviews. "The Big Brother 6" site also had record breaking traffic and averaged 17 million pageviews per day over the weekend. This was due specifically, to the America's Choice poll that was announced on "Big Brother 6" on Thursday night's edition of the reality series. Viewers currently have the ability to decide which of the house guests who have already been evicted should go back into the house by casting their vote online on CBS.com or via text message. The winner will be announced on BIG BROTHER 6, to be broadcast live Thursday, August 11 (8:00 PM/live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network. Following the live eviction on Thursday evening's show, the latest evicted houseguest will be interviewed on Friday, August 12 on the CBS.com online talk show "Housecalls" (1pm ET/10 am PT) hosted by "Big Brother" alums Gretchen Massey and Marcellas Reynolds. For the first time this season, viewers will be able to speak directly with this week's evicted houseguest by calling into "Housecalls" at (323) CBS-1000.

On a side note, as we take a step back from the Big Brother house, we honor the passing of one of America's most known faces in broadcast journalism. ABC News Anchor Peter Jennings died today at his home in New York City. He was 67.
Meanwhile, as we wished them a safe flight into space, we now welcome Space Shuttle Disovery back home this morning as they're scheduled to land at 4:46 a.m. ET at Kennedy Space Center. Good Luck Discovery!
Update: The first and second landing attempts were both a "no-go" due to cloud coverage over Cape Canaveral. Discovery will try again Tuesday morning.

The game begins as everyone reflects on Kaysarâ€™s leaving the BB House. Even though he was ousted by a vote of 7 to 1, Kaysar so far, seems to be the only one to receive such a positive send-off. Itâ€™s apparent that Kaysar was well liked. It could be that he played the game with some morals. Howie wins HOH. He plans on avenging Kaysarâ€™s eviction. At this point, Maggie is running a little scared. She figures sheâ€™s the next one to be nominated for eviction. More information...

Just when you thought it was safe to leave your auto-vote running all weekend while you frolic about. The "King Kaysar" fiasco has hit the fan with thousands of Kaysarians waiting for the final "America's Choice" results due in on Thursday.
Saturday, Aug 6th @ 8:34 pm Although we are not sure yet if multiple voting is available, I got this email from Kat who has a Kaysar auto-voter.
This is what she said!
Hey here is a automatic vote caster for Kaysar that I stumbled across. All you have to do is open this link in your browser and leave it open - it will continue to cast votes for Kaysar as long as that window remains open.
