It’s hardly a surprise, but NBC just renewed a show that has become a mainstay of its summer lineup. The Futon Critic reports that the Peacock Network will bring back “America’s Got Talent” for a 13th season.
The report notes that Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Mel B will all return as judges, with Tyra Banks set ot return as the show’s host.
NBC noted: “Last summer, ‘America’s Got Talent’ averaged a 3.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 16 million viewers overall in ‘live plus seven day’ averages for original Tuesday telecasts, according to Nielsen Media Research. That made it the most-watched season in its 12-year history. ‘AGT’ was easily the #1 summer show in both measures and provided a strong lead-in to the #2 show of the summer, NBC’s ‘World of Dance.'”
