“Big Brother 24” is finally here as the new season launched Wednesday, July 6 with a live 90-minute premiere on CBS. You can expect the expected when it comes to the show’s TV schedule because it’ll once again air on Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (for the most part). But there is a twist with the finale. Here’s how it all breaks down (all times ET):
Wednesday, July 6
8-9:30 p.m.: 90-minute live season premiere with move-in
Sundays beginning July 10
Wednesdays beginning July 13
Thursdays beginning July 14
9-10 p.m.: live evictions
Sunday, July 24
8-10 p.m.: special two-hour episode with Week 2 eviction
Sunday, Sept. 25
8-10 p.m.: season finale
The second eviction will air as a two-hour episode on Sunday, July 24 due to CBS’ coverage of the House select committee’s public hearings on the Jan. 6 insurrection on Thursday, July 21 (the episode was initially moved to Friday, July 22). Note that CBS does not call Sunday’s episode “live.”
The finale will take place on a Sunday instead of the usual Wednesday (but it’ll also air earlier, so a win for all of us, really). Keep checking back as there will likely be some special episodes and time slots along the way, especially in September, as there usually is with football, etc. CBS does not have a doubleheader on Sept. 25, so the finale will not be impacted.
Because the season will wrap on a Sunday instead of a Wednesday, Season 24 will run for 82 days, three shorter than the past two seasons. Pre-COVID, the seasons, of course, were clocking in at 99 days.
