Back in late March Julie Chen went on the Late Late Show and announced the Big Brother 13 start date was July 6, 2011. This week CBS corrected that premiere date with a press release. Oops. It’s okay, Julie. We all still love ya!

BB13 will officially premiere on Thursday, July 7, 2011 at 9PM ET/PT.

CBS also confirmed the summer schedule as we previously reported it (thanks to Big Brother Access):

  • Thursdays (live evictions) 9-10PM ET/PT starting 7/7/11
  • Sundays 8-9PM ET/PT starting 7/10/11
  • Wednesdays 8-9PM ET/PT starting 7/13/11

Now that the application process is over for Big Brother 13 we know that Kassting Inc is working hard at selecting the very best cast possible. Robyn Kass says they’ll notify all finalists by the end of May and we should expect a short announcement around the same time to confirm casting is completed.
