BURBANK -- July 18, 2007 -- NBC will celebrate the re-airing of "Victoria Beckham: Coming to America" on Thursday, July 19 as the international superstar hosts the NBC Thursday night comedy line-up (8-10 p.m. ET) leading into an encore presentation of her popular special (10-11 p.m. ET) featuring her move across the pond from London to Los Angeles.

Beckham will provide commentary about her life in America featuring clips from her recent special, while she takes viewers through two hours of critically acclaimed comedy starting with "My Name Is Earl" at 8 p.m. ET, followed by "30 Rock" at 8:30 p.m. ET, leading into "The Office" at 9:00 p.m. ET and ending with "Scrubs" at 9:30 p.m. ET.

After the laughs, Victoria will introduce her popular special, "Victoria Beckham: Coming to America," which premiered as the #1 show in adults 18-49 from 8-9 p.m. on Monday, July 16. The special, which averaged a 2.2 rating, 7 share in adults 18-49 and 5.0 million viewers overall, gave NBC a 29 percent increase on the network's 18-49 average in the time period this summer and a 57 percent jump in the slot week-to-week.
