Posted on Dec 1, 2017 10:00am

CBS is warming things up this winter with the premieres of all-new shows plus the return of some of the hottest series on television—and one of your favorites will have a big new celebrity twist!

The 2018 CBS winter schedule includes the the first ever celebrity edition of Big Brother (Wednesday, Feb. 7 at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access), with multiple episodes per week. The concentrated run, hosted by Julie Chen, will include the always popular Head of Household and Power of Veto competitions and live evictions.

Living Biblically (Monday, Feb. 26 at 9:30/8:30c on CBS and CBS All Access) will premiere after 9JKL finishes its season order. The new comedy stars Jay R. Ferguson as Chip Curry, a modern-day man at a crossroads in his life who decides to live strictly in accordance with the Bible. (You may have heard the show previously referenced as By the Book.)

Instinct (Sunday, March 11 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access) will bow two weeks after the season finale of Big Brother. The new drama stars Alan Cumming as Dr. Dylan Reinhart, a gifted author, university professor and former CIA operative who is lured back to his old life by NYPD Detective Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic) to help her stop a serial killer who is using Dylan’s first book as a tutorial.

The second half of the TV year will also feature the 30th season of The Amazing Race (Wednesday, Jan. 3 at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access), including a pair of two-hour episodes. A month later, after the conclusions of Big Brother and The Amazing Race, Survivor will head to Fiji for a special two-hour season premiere (Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access).

Continue reading for more on each of these shows, plus a full breakdown of important dates to circle on your calendar. Remember that you can stream these shows live or on demand with CBS All Access on your favorite devices!

Of course, there's plenty more in store. The premieres of Code Black, Elementary, and Undercover Boss will be announced at a later date.



About The Amazing Race
The Amazing Race is a multi-Emmy Award-winning reality series hosted by Emmy Award-nominated host Phil Keoghan, where teams of two embark on a trek around the world.

At every destination, each team must compete in a series of challenges, some mental and some physical, and only when the tasks are completed will they learn of their next location.

Teams who are the farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning The Amazing Race and the $1 million prize.

Watch the Season 30 premiere of The Amazing Race on Wednesday, Jan. 3 at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access. Stream full episodes from all past seasons of The Amazing Race on CBS All Access.
