CBS has announced the official premiere date for the 13th season of Big Brother. The houseguest competition series will return on Thursday, July 7, and will once again be broadcast three times a week on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. (The weekly Thursday broadcast will serve as the live eviction show.)
The network also announced the premiere of a new reality series, Same Name, in which celebrities will trade places for one week with someone who shares their name. The new series will debut on July 24, forming a two-hour Sunday reality block with Big Brother.
