Big Brother 15: longer season, earlier debut, new schedule
Big Brother 15 will break from tradition and debut two weeks earlier than usual, on June 26 at 9 p.m. That gives the series “a longer edition this summer,” CBS said, and it will presumably end, as usual, in mid-September, when Survivor debuts.
CBS announced that this morning along with a new schedule for the show: It will now air Tuesdays at 9, Wednesdays at 9, and Sundays at 8. The Wednesday episode will be live evictions, and will move to 8 p.m. on July 17, following the conclusion of its version of he Great British Bake Off.
Big Brother received an early renewal for the series last fall; despite a drop-off in viewers year to year, it remains a success for the network.
