Summer 2014 reality TV debut schedule

Last week’s conclusions of Survivor, The Voice, and American Idol signal the start of reality TV’s summer flood. This year, it includes the return of shows from So You Think You Can Dance to Big Brother, and will hopefully bring us surprises like last summer’s sleeper hits.

The frequently-updated list below includes the officially announced debut dates of new and returning series. Times are ET/PT; because TV networks change their schedules and repeat episodes, check your guide or other TV listings.
