Big Brother 21 schedule: Slight shift to begin summer 2019 season

Big Brother 21 finally has some official information getting released by CBS. The dates of the first few episodes have been made public in a new press release from the network.

The Big Brother 21 schedule for the first few weeks has been released by CBS. The network made a few changes from what took place in summer 2018, but it should settle into a very familiar weekly schedule once the summer really gets going.

Early Big Brother 21 schedule

The season premiere will take place on Tuesday, June 25 at 8/7c on CBS. It will be followed by the second episode on Wednesday, June 26. That one is also at 8/7c on CBS. Each of the first two episodes is only one hour long.

There is no Thursday night episode during the premiere week, putting Episode 3 on Sunday, June 30 at 8/7c. That will be it for the month of June, with three episodes getting used introducing viewers to the BB21 cast.

Big Brother 21 schedule continues

CBS was a bit unclear of what exactly will take place after June 30. The network has stated that the show will air three times a week but didn’t explain how that second week of episodes is going to work.

CBS did reveal that beginning with the Wednesday, July 10 episode, the show will air at 9/8c on Wednesday and Thursday nights. We will have to wait on some information from CBS in regard to episodes that might air from July 2-4.

As the Fourth of July is a holiday, it’s possible that the July 2 (Tuesday) and July 3 (Wednesday) episodes remain at 8/7c on the schedule. That would mirror what CBS is doing during the premiere week and it would make sense to not have a new episode on a holiday.

Having the Big Brother 21 schedule back on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays in the summer will give CBS a good shot to bring in a lot of viewers again. Fans are going to have to wait a bit longer to find out who is a part of the BB21 cast, but at least everyone knows when the show returns.
