CBS will be offering an alternative to the Winter Olympics this year: celebrities stuck in a house fighting for power. Celebrity Big Brother, the abbreviated edition of the network’s summer reality show, will premiere Wednesday, February 7 at 8/7c on CBS, just two days before the Winter games begin.

The celebrity version of Big Brother will be much shorter than a regular season, lasting less than a month. CBB will have a two-hour finale on Sunday, February 25 at 8/7c, but the show will air almost every day throughout February. The regular schedule for Celebrity Big Brother will be one-hour episodes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays at 8/7c and two-hour episodes on Fridays at 8/7c. There will be additional episodes the days after the premiere and before the finale.

In addition, The Amazing Race will airs its 30th season (featuring Big Brother 19 couple Cody and Jessica) at the start of 2018 with a very condensed schedule. The race begins Wednesday, January 3 at 8/7c, but moves to 9/8c when CBB begins in February. TAR will also include many two-hour episodes, leading to a season finale on Wednesday, February 21 at 9/8c.

CBB and TAR will serve as counter-programming to NBC’s Winter Olympics. When both of those reality shows are done, season 36 of Survivor will begin Wednesday, February 28 at 8/7c with a two-hour premiere.
CBS also set premiere dates for two new scripted mid-season shows. Living Biblically, a comedy about a man who decides to strictly follow the rules in the Bible, premieres Monday, February 26 at 9:30/8:30c, taking over once new comedy 9JKL ends its first season.
Instinct, a new drama starring Alan Cumming, will premiere Sunday, March 11 at 8/7c. The show centers on an author, professor and former CIA operative who teams up with an NYPD detective to track down a serial killer.
