Big Brother, Winter Edition: Now it’s a reality

Chen Get ready for “Big Brother: The Strike Edition.”

With hopes for a quick settlement of the WGA strike dimming, CBS is getting ready to unveil a revamped winter sked later this afternoon. One thing’s certain: Sked includes an in-season edition of reality hit “Big Brother.”

Ninth installment of the summer staple, which had been buzzed about for a month,  will make its bow Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 9 p.m. The Julie Chen-hosted reality series will also air Wednesday and Sunday nights at 8 p.m.

CBS will announce other January and February sked changes later today.

Eye scheduling execs, staying true to form, have slotted the winter “Big Brother” in a manner that’s minimally disruptive to the net’s current sked.

While the Tuesday edition of “Brother” displaces the scripted series “The Unit,” the Wednesday and Sunday episodes take the place of reality shows—“Kid Nation” and “The Amazing Race”— that will have wrapped their respective runs by February.

Winter air pattern for “Brother” is also very similar to the skein’s summer sked, in which episodes air on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday nights.
