Some fans may be upset that Big Brother 19 brought back Paul from last year, but it looks as though the show may be bringing back something even worse. The official CBS schedule has yet another Friday night episode of Big Brother 19 scheduled for August 18 at 8/7c, which means we may be getting yet another halfway clip show.

This year's schedule is identical to last season, with a special Friday night Battle Back episode and then, four weeks later, another Friday episode. The assumption would be that it will be similar to last season, where the HGs attended a county fair in the backyard as well as a Ziggy Marley concert, reminiscing about their first seven weeks in the house.

However, this is just a guess as to what the new Friday episode will be. Perhaps it will be something different. The odd part is that most fans assume that the August 17 episode will be a double eviction, so having a clip show right after that will be difficult to manage. Last season's Ziggy Marley concert was filmed prior to that week's eviction, and the editors carefully cropped Paulie out of all of the scenes to make it look like he wasn't there. But if two HGs will be evicted between the time they film whatever fun activity they have planned and the airing of the Friday episode, that will simply be impossible to plan for.

Whether there's a double eviction or not, it seems inevitable that we'll be getting a clip show, which means even more Jody, Josh and Paul antics. And if we're lucky, we'll at least get another Mr. Pec-tacular sighting.
