CBS Confirms Big Brother 15 Premiere Date & Schedule – Update

Big Brother 15 on CBS

Update: CBS has announced the premiere of Big Brother’s 15th season will air at 8PM ET instead of 9PM on June 26th. This new time will be the series permanent Wednesday time unlike the previously proposed timeslot swap midseason. Smart move.

Get ready Big Brother fans! CBS has just announced the premiere date for Big Brother 15 and not only has this news arrived incredibly early, but so will the season!

While BB traditionally starts after the 4th of July we’ll instead be treated to an extended season when Big Brother 15 premieres on Wednesday, June 26th at 9PM 8PM ET. Awesome! So while CBS says “Big Brother will have a longer edition this summer, premiering two weeks earlier” we may or may not get an extra two weeks on the end. That schedule could depend on how many Hantz HouseGuests meltdown and quit. Ziiinnngg!

Here’s some other surprising news. The BB15 schedule has also shifted to airing on different nights. For the 2013 summer season we’ll be watching Big Brother on Sundays (8PM ET), Tuesdays (9PM ET), and Wednesdays. At first I thought we were back to the old faithful (and my preference) Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, but nope.

The season premiere will once again be pre-recorded and air on Wednesday (6/26) then we’ll get a Sunday and Tuesday episode before the first live eviction on July 3rd. Then, just to confuse us, on July 17th the Wednesday episodes of Big Brother will move up to 8PM ET for the rest of the longer (and presumably awesome) season. CBS has decided to move up BB15 to a permanent 8PM broadcast on Wednesdays all season long.

There’s still time to apply for Big Brother Season 15 so check out the details and send in your application right now if you think you’ve got what it takes to win.

  1. yay!!!!! im so excited for this season!! Ive been waiting since.. well last season :) I hope BB15 will be alot better houseguest wise. Wonder if they revealed the chosen houseguests yet??

    • I’d guess they aren’t even close to having HGs picked yet. Casting calls won’t start up until March or so. I think Kassting Inc is probably still working hard to finalize HGs for BB Canada which starts in about 6 weeks.

    • I’m thinking CBS is just looking to get more out of BB. It wins its slot just about every time so with no competition in June they might as well get some more advertising bucks out of it. But that’s just my guess.

  2. I want some great action, twist, turns, Drama for sure,A fight here & there, some true competitors, and dedicated bb players that will fight to the dayummm end no matter the “F”!!!!!!! Oh yea & a lil sexiness wud be ok too!!!! :)

  3. I so excited big brother is coming earlier. That means less time to wait. I really hope the bring more interesting people in the game this time around.

  4. Yeah I can’t wite tell it come I hope they put Brandon and Rachel beacus I love them LOL

  5. Can’t wait but really hope they don’t bring back former HG. Hopefully some new twists will be added also. Truthfully, they could bring back every single hg from last season and i would STILL watch. Can anyone say addiction? :)

  6. i also wished for Sun, Tues and Thurs again…never liked the 2 day in a row showings…..the extra 2 weeks is so exciting hoping for extra great twists to blow our minds, lol….☺…..

  7. Gosh!!! I am so happy for BB/15…I was hoping for more than 3 times a week on cbs…The live show should be on sunday..You will get more viewers on that day…

  8. I hope they revamp the entire house. We need a completely new layout. Tired of looking at a house that never changes except the decor. I do hope we get an interesting cast. I would like to see some players over their 30s not all 21 to 28 with only 1 or 2 over 33. Give us more of a mix please!

    • The only reason I DONT want older people to be on BB is because they’ll never win anything or really try. I like all people that are capable of winning, want to win, and can fight, very well, verbally. It’s more entertaining to see this, other than having older people float to the end because they do everyones laundry.

  9. wow i’m seriously gonna be on Big Brother overload in a month for like 6-7 months. BB Canada starts at end of Feb, ends like the end of May(i assume) then like a month later Big Brother USA starts for 3+ months. that’s a lot of BB, Lots of Feed watching too.

    i should really start getting my rest now, cause no resting during BB

  10. I seen video of some egotistical guy, who would most likely get voted off in week one just because of how he liked to hear himself talk, anyways he said he was chosen as the first houseguest of BB15 because he thinks cbs sees him as “making the show great”, problem is his video was recorded about a week or two after 14’s finale, 2nd problem. .. you can’t blab to the world if you make it as a houseguest. You have to keep your lip zipped unless possibly they bring veterans back, that would be the only person I see being able to make a YouTube video of the new season. Even then we all know CBS is all about their surprises, they won’t have anyone knowing too much too soon, or anything at all for that fact

  11. yay!!!!! im so excited Big Brother is the only reality show I watch, I love it! i hope there will be lots of changes this season. i want to expect the unexpected! love it love it

  12. Don’t like it on Tues.!! Too many shows already on that night.. ugh!
