The Amazing Race and Celebrity Big Brother won't debut as part of CBS' Fall 2018 schedule, but will air later in the TV season.
CBS unveiled its Fall 2018 schedule on Wednesday and Season 31 of The Amazing Race and Season 2 of Celebrity Big Brother were not part of the broadcast lineup, with the network announcing both shows will air later in the 2018-2019 television season.
The news isn't unexpected given the most recent 2017-2018 season of The Amazing Race didn't premiere until January 2018 and Celebrity Big Brother's debut season aired in February.
Meanwhile, the first season of Celebrity Big Brother ran as counter-programming to NBC's broadcasts of the Winter Olympics in February and aired its finale on February 25.
Actress Marissa Jaret Winokur was crowned champion of Celebrity Big Brother's inaugural season in America, as she defeated entertainment reporter Ross Mathews for the $250,000 grand prize. (Ross received $50,000 for finishing in second place).
