The Battle Back competition episode got it’s own special air date on Friday, July 22nd. Being that the final competition couldn’t take place until after Thursday’s eviction, meant that we were likely to have the usual extended downtime when a special episode is being prerecorded.
CBS has confirmed that there will be an extended downtime this week while this competition is being played and recorded. The exact date of that downtime is currently unknown, but it is possible that the live feeds will simply not return after Thursday’s eviction and we’ll have to wait until after Friday’s episode.
It’s possible that the downtime could be even longer than that, but at the moment it seems unlikely, as you’d expect them to be more specific if they knew it was going to be long then a 24 hour downtime. We’ll keep you updated as we learn exactly how long the downtime will be.
Update: We now know that the live feeds will be down until 9PM PST on Friday.
