CBS has set its summer lineup, which will include moving Under the Dome to Thursdays.

CBS’ summer will kick off with the two-night premiere of Big Brother on June 24-25; Brother will again air three nights a week, with its Sunday debut on June 28.

Under the Dome, which saw its ratings drop dramatically last summer, will move from Monday to Thursday this year. Dome will have a two-hour debut on June 25 from 9-11 p.m., before settling in at 10 p.m. the following week.

New drama Zoo, based on James Patterson’s novel of the same name, will air on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. beginning June 30. The next night, Halle Berry-led Extant will return for its sophomore season, giving CBS three nights per week of original scripted programming this summer.
