Instinct and Living Biblically

CBS announced winter 2018 scheduling moves, including the debut of Big Brother's celebrity edition, the series premieres of new comedy Living Biblically and drama Instinct , and the return of The Amazing Race and Survivor. The Network will launch its first celebrity edition of reality hit Big Brother on Wednesday, Feb. 7 at 8:00PM, ET/PT.

Also in February, CBS will premiere the new comedy Living Biblically (f.k.a. By the Book) on Monday, Feb. 26 at 9:30 PM, ET/PT after 9JKL completes its season order. Living Biblically stars Jay R. Ferguson as Chip Curry, a modern-day man at a crossroads in his life who decides to live strictly in accordance with the Bible. As he begins his sincere spiritual journey toward a more moral life with the help of his wife and friends, Chip wonders if he'll be able to take a page - or every page - out of the Good Book, and if the effect will be of Biblical proportions. Lindsey Kraft, Ian Gomez, David Krumholtz, Tony Rock and Camryn Manheim also star. Instinct will premiere Sunday, March 11 at 8:00 PM, ET/PT, two weeks after the season finale of Big Brother. The new drama stars Alan Cumming as Dr. Dylan Reinhart, a gifted author, university professor and former CIA operative who is lured back to his old life by NYPD Detective Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic) to help her stop a serial killer who is using Dylan's first book as a tutorial.
