NBC has ordered a sixth installment of the summer reality hit "America's Got Talent."
The "America's Got Talent" renewal wasn't exactly a huge surprise if you consider that this is the fifth straight year the show has finished as the most watched summer series in total viewers.
Season-to-date, "America's Got Talent" is averaging 11.8 million viewers in both its Tuesday and Wednesday airings, with a 3.4 rating in the key 18-49 demo on Tuesdays and a 3.3 demo rating on Wednesdays. In addition, NBC has reliably been able to fill an impressive number of summer scheduling gaps with "America's Got Talent" repeats.
"'AGT' continues to be a ratings sensation and has hit it out of the ballpark creatively this season," states Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming and Production, NBC and Universal Media Studios. "We have a dream team of celebrity judges -- Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and Piers Morgan -- and coupled with our versatile host Nick Cannon, we're looking forward to an even bigger summer next year."
The fifth installment of "America's Got Talent" will wrap up with a two-night finale airing from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 14 and from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 15.
