Big Brother stays with longer seasons as CBS announces its debut date

Big Brother will again start in June, extending the previously standard length about two weeks, just like the show did for the first time last year.

CBS announced today that the 16th season of the show “will debut early for the second straight summer”: It starts June 25, and will air Wednesdays at 8, Thursdays at 9, and Sundays at 8.

Insane amounts of bigotry and other things the producers don’t want you to see will, as always, air on the live feeds only.
