CBS announced that it has renewed Big Brother for a twelfth season, which is currently slated to air next summer.

Big Brother's currently airing eleventh season has averaged 7.08 million total viewers, a 2.5/8 rating/share in the Adults 18-49 demographic and a 2.0/7 rating/share among Adults 18-34 throughout its three-times-a-week broadcast schedule. 

Compared to last summer's tenth season, the figures represent a 7% increase in total viewers, 4% among Adults 18-49 and 5% among Adults 18-34.

In addition, CBS' website also logged a record-setting 11.6 million home viewer votes when Jeff Schroeder was awarded the "Coup d'Etat" power earlier this summer.

Big Brother's two-hour eleventh-season finale and reunion show will air live on Tuesday, September 15 at 9PM ET/PT and feature the season's three remaining houseguests -- Jordan Lloyd, Natalie Martinez and Kevin Campbell -- battling for the $500,000 grand prize.
