CBS Unveils ‘Big Brother’ Premiere Date, New Reality Show

”Same Name“ will feature celebrities trading places with commoners who happen to share their monikers

"Big Brother" will return for another season of roommate drama and intrigue on July 7, while a new reality offering, "Same Name," will make its debut on July 24, CBS announced.

Long-running series "Big Brother" will air Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, with the eviction shows airing live on Thursdays.

The hour-long "Same Name," which will follow "Big Brother" on Sundays at 9 p.m., revolves around the concept of celebrities temporarily trading places with common people who have identical monikers. (Bradley Pitt of Des Moines, Iowa, prepare for a serious lifestyle upgrade.)

CBS also announced the air dates of the 65th Annual Tony Awards (June 12), The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards (June 9), and the annual Boston Pops Fireworks Awards, which will be hosted by Michael Chiklis on July 4.
