Same Name, CBS SummerCBS has announced its summer 2011 schedule. Not so shockingly, it's full of reality TV! 'Big Brother' and 'Same Name' anchor the new schedule.

'Big Brother' will air three times a week starting Thu., July 7 at 9PM. Julie Chen returns as host.

Joining 'Big Brother' on CBS this summer is 'Same Name' (Sun., July 24 at 9PM), a new reality show about celebrities trading places with ordinary folks who share -- you guessed it -- the same name. The swap lasts for a week. David Hasselhoff (pictured) is featured in the premiere episode.

Neil Patrick Harris returns as host for the 65th Annual Tony Awards, live on Sun., June 12 at 8PM. Wayne Brady will host the Daytime Emmy Awards live on Sun., June 19 at 8PM.

I really don't like it much when Big Brother is on back to back nights during the week, it causes tape delay and wonky editing...

ugh, more "reality" TV. How about some guilty pleasure scripted serials like Harper's Island or Persons Unknown during the summer, when ratings expectations are lower?

ratings expectations are lower, therefore viewers are lower. (yes i know that's effect-therefore-cause. deal with it.)
reality shows are MUCH cheaper to produce, write, edit, shoot, and cast than anything scripted - that's part of the appeal to networks.

Whatever. What we all really want to know, with all the networks, is what's their schedule for the fall. Upfronts are next week. What's been officially cancelled and what's coming back? Lets get on with it already.
