CBS announced its spring premiere air dates today for its three cornerstone reality shows, including The Amazing Race 33—the season that had to restart after being stopped in Feb. 2020—and Survivor 42, plus Celebrity Big Brother 3, which will air opposite both the Olympics and The Super Bowl.
It also announced the return of Undercover Boss, which will premiere its 11th season on Jan. 7. Read on for the other air dates and schedules, which in the case of CBB3 is very weird!
Survivor 42’s premiere date
Survivor 42 won’t premiere until March 9, the latest spring premiere in the CBS show’s history.
Survivor’s spring season has only premiered in March once, in 2017, for Survivor: Game Changers, which was episode 500. That premiere date was March 8.
The season will get a two-hour premiere on March 9, starting at 8, and after that, Survivor 42 will stay at 8 p.m. on Wednesdays.
Amazing Race 33’s premiere date
The Amazing Race 33 re-started production earlier this fall, using a charter plane to make its way around the world, and there won’t be a lengthy delay between filming and airing like there was for TAR 32.
The show will kick off with two-hour premiere on Jan. 5, and then air Wednesdays at 9.
CBS described it like any other season: “teams of two once again embark on a trek around the world, hoping to be the first to arrive at the final destination, winning The Amazing Race and the $1 million prize.”
Celebrity Big Brother 3’s premiere date
Celebrity Big Brother season 3 will premiere Feb. 2, two days before the start of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. It will air for exactly three weeks.
It will have a total of 15 episodes that air on a variety of days and in different timeslots, including one hour that will air at the same time as Super Bowl LVI, which will be broadcast on NBC from Los Angeles.
Here are the days and times CBB3 will broadcast episodes:
- Wednesday, Feb. 2, 8:00-9:00 PM
- Thursday, Feb. 3, 9:00-10:00 PM
- Friday, Feb. 4, 11 & 18, 8:00-10:00 PM
