By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- The 11th season of "Big Brother" will premiere Thursday, July 9 at 8:00/7:00c on CBS, network sources confirmed to the site this afternoon.

The series will then continue on Sundays at 8:00/7:00c and Tuesdays at 9:00/8:00c, a slight deviation from last summer's initial schedule of Sundays at 8:00/7:00c, Tuesdays at 9:00/8:00c and Wednesdays at 8:00/7:00c. (Two weeks later, the latter edition moved to Thursdays at 8:00/7:00c in place of "Greatest American Dog.")

Meanwhile, "The Big Bang Theory," "The Mentalist" and "How I Met Your Mother" are set to move to their new fall homes starting next month.

"The Mentalist" will shift to Thursdays at 10:00/9:00c beginning June 4. Repeats will still continue in its old Tuesday, 9:00/8:00c home until "Big Brother" takes over on July 14.

"Big Bang" likewise will jump to Mondays at 9:30/8:30c starting June 8 with "Mother" assuming the 8:00/7:00c slot on June 22. "Rules of Engagement" will fill out the night at 8:30/7:30c.

In addition, "48 Hours Mystery" will expand to twice a week starting June 2 with episodes airing Tuesdays at 10:00/9:00c and Saturdays at 10:00/9:00c.
