‘Instinct,’ ‘Living Biblically’ Premieres Set at CBS

CBS has set its midseason schedule, announcing premiere dates for returning reality franchise “The Amazing Race,” and “Survivor,” as well as a celebrity edition of “Big Brother” and new scripted series “Instinct” and “Living Biblically.”

The new season of “The Amazing Race” is set to debut Wednesday, Jan. 3 at 8 p.m. Celebrity “Big Brother” will take over that time slot Feb. 7, placing it against the Winter Olympics — a counterprogramming effort at a time when broadcasters tend to throttle back on original content, ceding ground to NBC for two weeks. “Survivor” will then take over the Wednesday 8 p.m. time slot beginning Feb. 28, setting up that time period as a year-round home for reality programming.

New comedy “Living Biblically” will premiere Monday, Feb. 26 at 9:30 p.m. after “9JKL” completes its season order. Freshman drama “Instinct” will debut Sunday, March 11 at 8 p.m., two weeks after the season finale of “Big Brother.”
