CBS today announced its summer schedule, including the new event series “SALVATION,” the new live-action game show “CANDY CRUSH,” the third season of “ZOO,” based on James Patterson’s #1 bestselling novel, and the return of the summer sensation BIG BROTHER.

 

“BIG BROTHER,” hosted by Julie Chen, will once again have three weekly episodes.  The hit reality series debuts with a special two-hour premiere on Wednesday, June 28 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), followed by the Thursday broadcast on June 29 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), Sunday’s installment on July 2 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), and its regular Wednesday time period on July 5 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). Last summer, all three editions ranked among the summer’s top 10 broadcasts in adults 18-49, adults 18-34 and adults 25-54.

 

“ZOO,” last summer’s #2 scripted series, returns for its third season on Thursday, June 29 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT). In season three, the year is 2027 and the world has reached a tipping point: as the human population continues to dwindle due to the sterility problem, an equally devastating threat rises in the form of “the hybrids,” an army of unstoppable lab-made creatures, hell-bent on destroying Mankind.

 

“CANDY CRUSH,” the new live action game show based on the globally renowned mobile game franchise premieres Sunday, July 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT). The game that has become a worldwide phenomenon comes to life as teams of two people use their wits and physical agility to compete on enormous, interactive game boards featuring next generation technology to conquer “CANDY CRUSH” and be crowned the champions.

 

The new suspense thriller “SALVATION” premieres Wednesday, July 12 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT). The series centers on tech superstar Darius Tanz (Santiago Cabrera) and MIT grad student Liam Cole (Charlie Rowe), who bring Pentagon official Grace Barrows (Jennifer Finnigan) a staggering discovery – that an asteroid is just six months away from colliding with Earth.
