Then, starting Wednesday, July 5 at 8/7c, the voyeuristic fun will settle into its regular schedule of airing hour-long episodes every Wednesday at 8/7c, Thursday at 9/8c, and Sunday at 8/7c.

Also back is last summer's #2 scripted series, Zoo, which will premiere on Thursday, June 29 at 10/9c.

In Season 3, it's 2027 and the world is facing a tipping point as the human population continues to decline because of the sterility problem. At the same time, an equally devastating threat to the population is rising in the form of "the hybrids," an army of unstoppable lab-made creatures who are intent on destroying what's left of Mankind.

On Sunday, July 9 at 9/8c, Candy Crush, the new live-action game show based on the globally renowned (and highly addictive) game franchise will make its CBS premiere. 

The delicious worldwide phenomenon will come to life when teams of two will use their wits and physical agility to compete on a humongous, interactive game board that features innovative technology and multiple game modes.

Finally, a new suspense thriller called Salvation is set to premiere on Wednesday, July 12 at 9/8c. 

The freshman series centers on tech superstar Darius Tanz (Santiago Cabrera) and MIT grad student Liam Cole (Charlie Rowe), who turn to Pentagon official Grace Barrows (Jennifer Finnigan) when they discover an asteroid is merely six months away from colliding with Earth.
