AXS TV has announced the its TV series “The Big Interview” will premier in a new timeslot on Tuesday, April 16 at 8 p.m. Dan Rather will again host and conduct interviews with some of entertainment’s most influential artists.

“I’m incredibly proud to see ‘The Big Interview’ returning for season seven,” Rather said. “It has been my honor to sit down with these entertainment trailblazers every week, as they welcome me — and viewers across the world — into their personal lives. Hitting our 100th episode last season was truly a landmark moment, but it was only the beginning. I look forward to what the future has in store as we continue to build upon that success.”

“‘The Big Interview’ has strongly resonated with our viewers, and Dan Rather is a major reason for that,” said Evan Haiman, vice president of music programming and production at AXS TV. “He has a unique ability to get larger-than-life figures to open up in a deeply personal way, showing viewers a side of these icons that they don’t usually get to see. Season seven continues that proud legacy, offering up even more of the legendary guests and in-depth discussions that have come to define the series throughout the years.”
