TCA 2014: NBC says summer shows delivering
NBC is renewing “America’s Got Talent,” “Last Comic Standing,” and “American Ninja Warrior.”
The new seasons will be the 10th for “America’s Got Talent,” ninth for “Last Comic Standing,” and fourth for “American Ninja Warrior.”
NBC entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt noted that NBC has won every week this summer except for two that ABC won while airing the NBA Finals. He credited the three shows with helping NBC win.
“The renewal of these three series is evidence that we continue to hit our stride in delivering quality entertainment to a broad viewership,” said Paul Telegdy, president of Alternative and Late Night Programming for NBC Entertainment. “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.”
