NBC Renews 'America's Got Talent' for Season 10


The network also gives new-season orders to two other summer programs, 'Last Comic Standing' and 'American Ninja Warrior'.

NBC has given renewals to three of its summer shows. "America's Got Talent" is ordered for a tenth season, "Last Comic Standing" will be back for a ninth season, and "American Ninja Warrior" will return for a fourth season.

NBC chief Robert Greenblatt announced the renewal news during the executive session at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills on Sunday, July 13. As for "The Celebrity Apprentice" which was not included in the network's schedule for 2014-2015 season, alternative programming boss Paul Teledgy said the seventh cycle was "produced" but there's "no update" on when it would air.

Also during the panel, Greenblatt expressed his confusion as to why only a few people watched its critically acclaimed show "Hannibal". " 'Hannibal' is...one of the best shows we have creatively, and it's one of the best-reviewed shows this network has had since I've been here," he said. "We still struggle to find an audience for it. It's great, we're keeping it going, we keep trying to build the audience, but if this were on a cable network, the small audience wouldn't matter and it would be deemed more successful than it is on our network."

He added, "I don't know why five or eight million people won't watch 'Hannibal' on a broadcast network. Three million might watch it on Showtime, or two million on another cable network, and that's okay. The minute you try to do something that is dark and subversive and frightening and gets into that territory, you start to peel away the mass audience. That's just the way it is, I think."
