NBC has given the variety series I Can Do That featuring celebrities attempting to master new skills a second season order. The network ordered up eight new episodes of the show which averaged 5.7 million viewers over its season one run. The first season was hosted by Marlon Wayans and featured Cheryl Burke, Ciara, Joe Jonas, Nicole Scherzinger, Jeff Dye, and Alan Ritchson, with Scherzinger named the top entertainer.

“This series thrust our celebrities out of their comfort zones and into exciting, unpredictable situations and they rose to the occasion each week,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment. “We are thrilled to bring new challenges and up the ante for season two.”

The Plot:

In season one of I Can Do That, six of America’s brightest entertainers came together to compete and showcase their talents with breathtaking and unique acts — featuring skills they did not even know they had.

In each episode and in front of a live audience, the six cast members entered a friendly rivalry as they chose their favorite act — what they thought they could master — and who they wanted to pair up with to master that act. Once they had made their selection, the duos made their way into the training studio where they worked with their expert coach for five days to produce an amazing act. After the week of intensive training, the celebrities returned to the stage to perform their act in hopes of scoring the top slot on that night’s scoreboard. Season one acts included The Blue Man Group, Penn and Teller, The Harlem Globetrotters, Avenue Q and Snoop Dogg.

With no judges or eliminations, “I Can Do That” allows the cast to show off their untapped talents and enjoy a little friendly competition along the way. At the conclusion of the season, based on audience votes, one cast member is revealed as the season’s ultimate entertainer.
