CBS Announces Summer Schedule; Sets Premiere Dates For 'Reckless', 'Unforgettable' & More – TVWise

Following on from TNT and ABC Family, CBS is the third network in the past week (and the first of the big four networks) to announce details of their summer schedule.
In a reversal of what broadcast nets have been doing in the recent past, CBS has unveiled an ambitious plan to have four scripted series on the air over the summer months – a period which is normally dominated by the scripted efforts on cable. Those four series are Under The Dome, Unforgettable, the Halle Berry starrer Extant and Reckless – the buzzy legal drama set in the south which stars, amongst others, Cam Gidandet and Shawn Hatosy.
Of those three series, up first is Reckless, which premieres on Sunday June 29th at 9/8c. That is followed by the third season of Unforgettable on Sunday June 29th at 10/9c. With Unforgettable set to premiere in late June, CBS is debuting the show’s third season only a little more than a month after season two wraps its run in mid-May.
As previously announced, the second season of Under The Dome premieres on Monday June 30th at 10/9c. While Extant, which was originally set to premiere on Wednesday July 2nd, has been pushed back a week and will now debut on Wednesday July 9th at 9/8c. Rounding out CBS’ slate of first run content for Summer is Big Brother, which will be airing across three nights beginning June 25th.
