America’s Got Talent, American Ninja Warrior, and Last Comic Standing have all been renewed by NBC. AGT will be back for a 10th season, Last Comic Standing earned a ninth season renewal, and American Ninja Warrior will return for season four.

This season of America’s Got Talent has been earning the top spot among the major four networks in reality series, so the renewal order came as no big surprise to fans of the talent competition. The series is averaging 12.4 million viewers and holds the record, according to NBC, as the “world’s most successful reality TV format.”

Last Comic Standing, featuring Roseanna Barr, Keenen Ivory Wayans, and Russell Peters, has been pulling in an average of 5.1 million viewers.

This summer’s American Ninja Warrior draws an average of 5.3 million viewers and is ranked #12 across ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox among adults 18-49.

“The renewal of these three series is evidence that we continue to hit our stride in delivering quality entertainment to a broad viewership,” commented Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment. “All of the hard-working talented people on these shows — both behind and in front of the camera — should feel very proud of their achievements.”
