NBC Fills in More of Summer Lineup
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- NBC has filled in a few more gaps in its summer lineup, as encores of "Last Comic Standing" and "America's Got Talent" will precede their original installments on Mondays and Wednesdays for the length of their runs.

In addition, network sources have revealed both shows with wrap with two-hour finales: "Standing" on Monday, August 9 at 9:00/8:00c and "Talent" on Wednesday, September 15 at 9:00/8:00c.

That leaves just two opens slots on NBC's schedule: Tuesdays at 8:00/7:00c and Thursdays at 10:00/9:00c, which are expected to go to newcomers "Losing It With Jillian" and "Breakthrough With Tony Robbins." The Peacock also has the new competition series "United Plates of America," which is still casting, as well as the de facto backdoor pilot "Day One."
