CBS announced the rollout of its summer reality programming schedule, which includes FIRE ME�PLEASE, THE CUT, BIG BROTHER 6 and ROCK STAR: INXS.

FIRE ME� PLEASE, a new four-episode reality series that follows two people starting new jobs on the same day with the goal of intentionally getting fired by 3:00 PM, premieres on Tuesday, June 7 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. To most people, getting fired seems like it would be the end of the world, but, what if getting fired meant you could win $25,000? The person that gets fired closest to, but does not go past the 3:00 PM deadline, wins the cash prize. Hidden cameras capture the action as the participants drive their managers and co-workers crazy with outrageous behavior.

Eric Schotz ("Kids Say the Darndest Things") and Bill Paolantonio ("Kids Say the Darndest Things") are the executive producers for LMNO Productions and Magic Molehill Productions in association with BBC Worldwide. Colin Davis and Robin Meltzer are executive producers for BBC Worldwide.

THE CUT, hosted by fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger, premieres Thursday, June 9 (8:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) with a special 90-minute episode, the first of four Thursday broadcasts before it relocates to a new time period, which will be announced at a later date.

THE CUT pits 16 style-savvy contestants against each other in a competition to find America's fashion trendsetter of tomorrow. The winner will be awarded the opportunity to design his or her own collection under the Tommy Hilfiger label with an eye on becoming the next great American designer.

THE CUT is produced by Lions Gate Television in association with Pilgrim Films and Television. Craig Piligian is executive producer along with co-executive producer Darren Maddern, who created the series with Piligian. Also executive producing is Peter Connolly, President of Worldwide Marketing for Hilfiger. Eli Frankel will also serve as co-executive producer.

BIG BROTHER, the hit summer reality series, returns for its sixth edition beginning Thursday, July 7 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), with the first of BIG BROTHER's three weekly broadcasts. BIG BROTHER 6 will be broadcast on Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), Thursdays (8:00-9:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) and Saturdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). The Thursday broadcast, hosted by Julie Chen, will feature the live eviction of one of the houseguests.

BIG BROTHER 6 follows a group of strangers living together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. One by one, the houseguests will vote each other out of the house. At the end of three months, the last remaining houseguest will receive the grand prize of $500,000.

BIG BROTHER 6, created by John de Mol, is an Arnold Shapiro ("Scared Straight," "Rescue 911") and Allison Grodner ("Rescue 911") Production, in association with Endemol U.S.A.

ROCK STAR: INXS, from "Survivor" executive producer Mark Burnett, combines the world of rock music with relationship-style unscripted drama, performance competition and a weekly contestant elimination. The last singer standing will become the lead singer of the internationally renowned band INXS and embark on a worldwide concert tour with the band and be part of the group's new album.

ROCK STAR: INXS will be broadcast three times weekly beginning with a special one-hour premiere on Monday, July 11 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), followed by a one-hour broadcast on Tuesday, July 12 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) and a half-hour edition on Wednesday, July 13 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT).

Beginning the following week, ROCK STAR: INXS will be seen regularly on Mondays (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT), Tuesdays (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) and Wednesdays (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT).

Those that make the casting cut will be housed together in a Hollywood Hills home. Each week will feature taped reality segments focusing on the competitors' relationships and activities (Monday episodes), along with a performance competition (Tuesday) and weekly results (Wednesday).

The series is produced by Mark Burnett Productions. Mark Burnett, David Goffin ("American Idol") and INXS managers David Edwards and Michael Murchison are executive producers. Conrad Riggs is co-executive producer.
