“The renewal of these three series is evidence that we continue to hit our stride in delivering quality entertainment to a broad viewership,” says Paul Telegdy, NBC’s head of alternative and late-night programming. “All of the hard-working talented people on these shows — both behind and in front of the camera — should feel very proud of their achievements.”
“AGT” has been the top unscripted show on the broadcast networks so far this summer, averaging a 3.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 12.4 million viewers in the “most current” Nielsen ratings (a combination of Live +7 and same-day results).
“Last Comic Standing” is getting its ninth season; this summer’s run draws a 1.7 in adults 18-49 and 5.1 million viewers. “Ninja Warrior,” which is renewed for a fourth year, scores a 1.8 in the 18-49 demo and 5.3 million viewers.
