CBS Sets Summer Schedule, Moves ‘Under the Dome’ to Thursday

CBS has set its summer lineup, which will include moving Under the Dome to Thursdays.

CBS’ summer will kick off with the two-night premiere of Big Brother on June 24-25; Brother will again air three nights a week, with its Sunday debut on June 28.

Under the Dome, which saw its ratings drop dramatically last summer, will move from Monday to Thursday this year. Dome will have a two-hour debut on June 25 from 9-11 p.m., before settling in at 10 p.m. the following week.

New drama Zoo, based on James Patterson’s novel of the same name, will air on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. beginning June 30. The next night, Halle Berry-led Extant will return for its sophomore season, giving CBS three nights per week of original scripted programming this summer.
