Winter 2018 reality shows schedule and guide

Winter—or midseason, as it’s known in TV—has arrived. In reality TV, that means everything from regular seasons of Top Chef and The Bachelor to a special three-week Big Brother celebrity edition.

This reality show schedule lists debut dates and time slots for new and returning reality TV shows that debut this winter (and beyond). I frequently update it with officially announced days and times and brief descriptions of each show; any text in quotation marks comes from that show’s official network press releases and materials.

Times are ET/PT; because TV networks change their schedules and repeat episodes, check your guide or other TV listings. For all the reality shows that premiered before Dec. 1, 2017, see the fall 2017 schedule.

Bookmark this page and check back—or click the link on the top of any reality blurred page to visit this list any time. If you have any updates, additions, or corrections, please e-mail me. Thanks!
