DESCRIPTION:
(from NBC's press release, July 2014) As a sign of the prolific work being accomplished in the network's alternative division, NBC has given renewals to a 10th season of "America's Got Talent," a ninth season of "Last Comic Standing" and a fourth season of "American Ninja Warrior," which airs in partnership with Esquire Network. So far this summer, NBC is consistently generating the highest regular-program ratings among the Big 4 networks, and has won every week this summer among those nets in adults 18-49 excluding the two weeks when ABC carried NBA Finals basketball. "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, Alternative and Late Night Programming, 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."
