Big Brother 9 debuts Feb. 12; airs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Sundays

CBS has confirmed the debut date for the first-ever non-summer edition of Big Brother. The ninth season will debut Feb. 12, according to a CBS press release.

The show will air Tuesdays at 9, Wednesdays at 8, and Sundays at 8, a slightly different schedule than the summer edition, which aired its eviction episodes on Thursday evenings. CBS also confirmed that “Julie Chen returns as host of the live weekly eviction broadcast.”

Producers are currently holding open casting calls for the new season, which will not feature America’s Player.
