CBS has announced CBB US Season 2 will premier between January 21st and February 13th... It is expected to run a similar schedule to last series airing multiple episodes per week...
If the regular series can withstand schedule shifts, CBB will survive an inconsistent schedule for these few weeks... Clearly CBS see CBB as a great opportunity to launch on the back of new programming and obviously not having the Olympics as a backdrop has created some challenges... Even if this schedule screws with broadcast ratings BB always preforms better after overnight and 7 day catch-up ratings are calculated...The scheduling is all over the place - 13 episodes with Monday the only day it airs every week. Over the three weeks it'll air on every day of the week with no consistent pattern from one week to the next.

- Thursday, Feb. 7, 9 to 10 p.m.
- Friday, Feb. 8, 8 to 10 p.m.
- Monday, Feb. 11, 9 to 10 p.m.
- Wednesday, Feb. 13, 9 to 11 p.m. (finale)
I agree but looking at the schedule they plan on following a pretty consistent format through the series... Not sure why they haven’t explanded episodes in to a two hour format... Meaning pretty much all episodes could be an eviction regardless of what’s taken place before hand... One hour doesn’t leave much outside of a few live competitions...Hopefully it's eratic scheduling can be used to their advantage as it'll make the week less predictable for the houseguests and the viewers
Sounds reasonable... Hopefully they keep the live competitions like they did last year... Having Julie on hand for the majority of episodes made the series feel much more event like and special rather than just a basic series... That said I'd cut down on a lot of the pointless live chit-chat segments... I feel like with the increased live shows last series there was a lot of highlight time wasted... Especially with the live feed blackout outside the US...I'd predict evictions in episodes 3, 5, 7 and 9, a double in episode 11 (the two hour ep), then probably one in episode 12 unless they use that as a series review and once again have more than 3 in the final episode.
