CBS has officially announced the return of Big Brother:
Season Premiere - Thursday, July 7 @ 9 p.m. EST/8:00 p.m. CST
Sunday, July 10 @ 8 p.m. EST/7:00 p.m. CST
Wednesday, July 13 @ 8 p.m. EST/7:00 p.m. CST
Thursday, July 14 @ 9 p.m. EST/8:00 p.m. CST [New Timeslot]
As in years past Big Brother is replacing The Amazing Race on Sundays and Survivor on Wednesdays. CBS again has decided not to disrupt its Tuesday night dramas for the summer, the Thursday edition is being pushed back so CBS can continue to establish its Thursday comedy block which will have repeats of The Big Bang Theory/Rules of Engagement. CSI looks like it will be rested this summer which is a first since its move to Thursday nights. A new reality show called Same Name (celebrities who share the same name with a member of the public will swap places for a week and live each other's lives) will take over Undercover Boss's timeslot after Big Brother effective July 24. The remainder of CBS' schedule hasn't been announced but it will most likely be repeats of their current shows in those timeslots.
Same Name is produced by 51 Minds Entertainment, LLC, an Endemol USA subsidiary while Big Brother is produced by Fly On The Wall Entertainment (Grodner/Meehan production company) and Endemol USA directly. 51 Minds is most notable for various VH1 celebrity shows like "I Love Money" "Rock of Love" etc.
