Big Brother and Wife Swap Renewed for New Seasons

-

CBS has given the green light to a 22nd season of Big Brother, while Paramount Network will bring back Wife Swap for a second season of 20 episodes.

Big Brother will return in summer 2020 with host Julie Chen Moonves. Since its premiere on CBS in the summer of 2000, Big Brother continues to be one of television’s top-rated summer series in young demographics. Summer-to-date, the Thursday and Sunday episodes are tops in key demos among all broadcasts. In addition, this season, Big Brother has experienced double-digit growth over last year in full episode streams across CBS digital platforms.

Big Brother airs Sundays and Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) and Thursdays (9:00-10:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT), featuring the live eviction show hosted by Julie Chen Moonves, on the CBS Television Network.

Big Brother follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 94 HD cameras and more than 113 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, someone will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize of $500,000. Big Brother is produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment in association with Endemol Shine North America.

Wife Swap is one of the most provocative, successful and talked-about social experiments of the reality TV era. The series, a Banijay Group format, is produced by Banijay Studios North America. The executive producers include Banijay Studios North America’s David Goldberg, Ted Iredell; Perry Dance and John Platt.

Season one of Wife Swap on Paramount Network delivered major ratings increases in key demos. “Wife Swap is an iconic international hit that we knew would resonate with our Paramount Network audience,” says Keith Cox, President of Development for Paramount Network and TV Land. “Season one told entertaining and compelling stories of great families that were dramatic and at times pleasantly comedic. We’ll explore even more diverse families and their fascinating stories for season two.”

During each swap, the new spouses must at first adhere to exactly the same rules and lifestyle of the spouses being replaced – including homes, child-rearing, chores, hobbies, lifestyles and careers, before introducing their own ideas and beliefs into their new households. At the end, both couples meet face-to-face and discuss what they learned from the swap and how their new experiences will shape their lives, habits and homes in the future.
