(CBS) – BIG BROTHER returns Wednesday, August 5 with an All-Stars edition. The summer reality hit debuts with a two-hour, move-in premiere event from 9:00-11:00 PM (live ET/delayed PT) on CBS and streaming on CBS All Access.
This summer marks BIG BROTHER’s 20th anniversary since debuting on CBS on July 5, 2000. Season 22 is the second time in the series’ history to feature an All-Star cast, the first being in 2006. In a BIG BROTHER first, the season premiere will be live and the “All-Star” cast will be revealed as they move into the house, during the two-hour live premiere.
BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 94 HD cameras and 113 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, someone will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize of $500,000.
BIG BROTHER will once again have three weekly episodes. Following the premiere on August 5, the series’ second episode will air Sunday, August 9 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). Starting Wednesday, August 12, BIG BROTHER airs Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), featuring the live eviction show hosted by Julie Chen Moonves.
