Big Brother

Big Brother 12 will premiere on Thursday, July 8 at 8/7c on CBS, the network announced Tuesday. The Julie Chen-hosted reality show, where houseguests compete to win $500,000, will air three times a week: Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 8/7c.

The network also announced return dates for dramas Flashpoint and Three Rivers, in addition to the new series The Bridge.

Yet another CBS show for Julie Chen?

Flashpoint will return for its third season on Friday, June 4 at 9/8c. The drama, which follows a team of cops in the Strategic Response Unit, will kick-off new episodes with a two-hour premiere. CBS will launch a new police drama this summer, The Bridge, about an officer who balances his duties fighting crime with a new job as a union leader. The show premieres on Saturday, July 10 at 8/7c.

Alex O'Loughlin, the star of CBS' upcoming Hawaii Five-O remake, will resurface on the Eye earlier than expected when the canceled medical drama Three Rivers burns off its remaining new episodes Saturdays beginning June 5 at 8/7c.
