The Power of 'Big Brother' Boosts '10'

A big piece of the "Power of 10" puzzle falls into place.
After writing yesterday about CBS’s mysterious “Power” double-down, last night’s episode of “Big Brother” cleared things up. CBS revealed that a pair of challenge-winning contestants get to leave the “BB” house, fly to New York City and appear on a “Power” episode.
The series crossover between the popular reality series and the modest-performing game show is sneakily synergistic and helps explain why the network ordered additional episodes: If you're going to reassemble a game show production, there's little point in taping only one episode. Smart-smart.
