‘Big Brother: After Dark’ to Air on TV Guide Network

'Big Brother' companion program previously spent seven seasons on Showtime

Big Brother: After Dark” is heading from Showtime to TV Guide Network this summer.

Reality program, a companion show to CBS’s “Big Brother,” features a live feed from inside the “Big Brother” house seven nights a week from midnight till 2 a.m. (West coast feed is delayed.)

“After Dark” will debut on TVGN on June 26 — the same night that “Big Brother” bows on the Eye — and will run for 13 weeks.

Transition of the skein from CBS-owned Showtime, where it ran for seven seasons, to TVGN, which was recently acquired by CBS, gives CBS the opportunity to sled over ratings equity from the broadcast show to TVGN, and to cross-promote the TV brands

“’Big Brother’ is one of television’s longest-running reality series with a loyal audience, and we are excited to bring ‘Big Brother: After Dark’ to TVGN where fans can watch all summer long,” said Brad Schwartz, prez of entertainment and media at TVGN. “When the sun goes down and the cameras are still rolling, some of the best reality TV moments come to life, and we expect this season of ‘Big Brother: After Dark’ to deliver more jaw-dropping action available only on TVGN.”

“Big Brother” is exec produced by Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment in association with Endemol USA.
