On Fridays, effective Friday, June 4, 2010, an all-new season of crime drama Flashpoint returns to CBS airing Fridays at 9pm leading into burn-off episodes of the canceled drama Miami Medical at 10pm. The very next day, Saturday, June 5, 2010, CBS will burn-off episodes of medical drama Three Rivers on Saturdays at 8pm.
On Friday, July 2 at 10pm, Miami Medical has its series finale, while Three Rivers will have its series finale the very next night (Saturday, July 3) at 8pm. On Friday, July 9, 2010 CBS will air two all-new back-to-back episodes of Flashpoint from 9-11pm, before it moves to 10pm starting July 16. Repeats of Medium is currently slated to air at 9pm starting July 16. Replacing Three Rivers on Saturdays will be Canadian import The Bridge starting Saturday, July 10 at 8pm.
Moving on to reality, Big Brother returns for its 12th season starting Thursday, July 8 at 8pm. The series will air this season on Thursdays at 8pm, Sundays at 8pm (starting July 11), and Wednesdays at 8pm (starting July 14). As of now, everything else in the summer are pretty much repeats.

And on Saturday, July 3, 2010, CBS presents the network premiere of the film Die Another Day.
In other CBS updates, Paula Abdul has been named an executive producer, creative partner and lead judge for Got to Dance (working title), a new reality-competition series for CBS. She will also serve as coach, mentor and advocate for contestants during the performances and elimination process, providing critical input and guidance while sharing her experience with hopeful contestants. No word yet when the series will air, but it could possibly air in January 2011. The series is based on the British hit that debuted earlier this year and has been a ratings sensation for Britain's Sky 1, making it one of the UK's top-rated pay TV series this season.
