There are several changes coming this summer for Big Brother 15, and one of them involves where you can catch a nightly dose of live feeds on your TV.
After airing on Showtime for the past few years, the daily Big Brother: After Dark will be on the TV Guide Network this summer, starting after the show’s season premiere on CBS on Wednesday, June 26.
TVGN, which CBS bought 50 percent of a few months ago, has a far larger audience than Showtime, nearly three times the size.
In addition to the move, Big Brother: After Dark is also shrinking down to two hours, from midnight to 2am ET every single night for 13 weeks. In past years the show ran for three hours every night.
Aside from the two hours of live feeds Big Brother 15 fans can catch on TVGN, the 24/7 live feeds are also back, though the show’s partnership with RealNetworks is over and now the live feeds will be hosted on CBS.com.
All of this comes as Big Brother 15 promises to be the biggest season ever, literally. The show is premiering two weeks earlier than usual and will end at the same time. Big Brother 14 ended in 75 days, but this new year could go as high as 90.
Julie Chen also announced on The Talk that this year will feature more HGs than ever before. The previous high was 16 HGs set in season 9 with the special couples edition and last year with the four coaches who eventually entered the game as players.
Big Brother 15 will continue to air three times a week on CBS, with new episodes Sundays at 8pm, Tuesdays at 9pm and live eviction shows Wednesdays at 9pm (though the show moves to 8pm on Wednesdays starting July 17).
Big Brother 15 begins Wednesday, June 26 at 9pm on CBS, followed by the launch of Big Brother: After Dark three hours later on TV Guide Network.
