Big Brother has a habit of dominating our summer television schedule because it airs multiple times a week, and with Season 16 about to kick off on June 25 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS, we thought we’d tell you exactly which nights you could tune in to catch your favorite long-running reality show.
Like we said, Season 16 starts on Wednesday, June 25 at 8 p.m. ET, but that’s only the first of the show’s three weekly broadcasts. BB will return on Thursday night, June 26, at 9 p.m. ET for the premiere of the live-eviction episode, though we won’t actually watch a houseguest get evicted until the following week, July 3 at 9 p.m. ET.
And last but not least, Big Brother’s Sunday night installment — which is typically when contestants compete for Head of Household and participate in the food competition — is slated to premiere on June 29 at 8 p.m. ET. The June 29 hour of BB marks a major summer milestone for CBS because it kicks off a three-hour block of original entertainment programming, which also includes Reckless at 9 p.m. ET followed by Unforgettable at 10 p.m. ET.
This seems like a solid schedule to us, but we should note that it could be subject to change because the BB bigwigs have been known to switch things up in seasons past.
