NBC Unveils Summer Sked: America's Got Talent Returns May 31, Love Bites Still MIA

NBC has unveiled its summer schedule and a trio of dust-collecting comedies  — Love Bites, Friends with Benefits and The Paul Reiser Show — are nowhere to be found. Instead, we’re getting a slew of unscripted shows, including the return of reality juggernaut America’s Got Talent on Tuesday, May 31 (9/8c).

Additionally, a new season of Jerry Seinfeld’s The Marriage Ref kicks off on Sunday, June 26 (10/9c), and rookie singing contest The Voice bows on Tuesday, April 26 (9/8c).

Other highlights from NBC’s summer sked

| Two new game shows — the Cedric the Entertainer-hosted It’s Worth What? and the fast-paced trivia competish Still Standing — will debut this summer, although the exact premiere dates are still TBD.

| New reality series Love in the Wild — which sounds like a cross between Survivor and The Dating Game — will also launch this summer.

| The final 10-episode season of Law & Order: Criminal Intent will premiere on Monday, May 30 (9/8c).

    America’s Got Talent is your best opportunity to see some outstanding variety acts eventually lose to a certain-to-be-forgotten mediocre Country Music singer.

    Glad to see I can cross NBC off summer viewing. I don’t know how NBC and USA are sister networks. USA is pretty much all I watch during the summer anyhow.

    Law and Order: Criminal Intent is on UPN (it hasn’t been on NBC since 2007, though I think it has aired reruns on NBC at some point). Might want to make note of that.

    Yawning now NBC !

    @FH14, UPN hasn’t existed in a few years. Might want to make note of that.

    Where is FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS??????????

      I hope on the shelf for good, you know, The Pilot Graveyard. IMO, the preview clips that I had seen were blah. I hated that they got rid of Fran Kranz.

    With how in demand Becki Newton and Jordana Spiro supposedly were last season, it’s kind of ironic they both picked a project that was so completely DOA.

    RIP, Love Bites.

    The Paul Reiser Show? Really?

  10. Hope F. LeSane says:

    Paul Reiser is such a nice and funny guy. It’s too bad they won’t bring him back to TV. Keep shopping Paul. Good luck. Why is it nice guys finish last?

  11. Kathy says:

    Well at least NBC shows won’t be clogging up the old Tivo.

    Jackie Evancho’s new CD is due to be released in June. It would be great if AGT would invite her back to give a performance from the new CD!

    I dont get why they wont try airing Love Bites. It was their biggest show at unfronts and they already spent the money making 9 episodes. Why dont they try and get a profit from it. EVEN DVDS!!
