Good news, Big Brother lovers: CBS has ordered a 12th season of the voyeuristic reality show to air next summer.

The current season, which wraps up with a live two-hour finale on Sept. 15, is up 11 percent in viewers from last summer. The show also continues to be a powerhouse online, as video streams of the show were up 94 percent from a year ago, and a record 11.6 million users logged on to vote for this season's coup d'etat power.

The show, one of the guiltiest of guilty pleasures, features contestants who live in a camera-rigged house and have their lives taped 24 hours a day as they compete against, yell at and occasionally sleep with one another on their way toward winning $500,000.

Are you excited to have the show back next summer?
