    NBC is renewing "America's Got Talent," "Last Comic Standing," and "American Ninja Warrior."

    The new seasons will be the 10th for "America's Got Talent," ninth for "Last Comic Standing," and fourth for "American Ninja Warrior."

    NBC entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt noted that NBC has won every week this summer except for two that ABCwon while airing the NBA Finals. He credited the three shows with helping NBC win.

    "The renewal of these three series is evidence that we continue to hit our stride in delivering quality entertainment to a broad viewership," said Paul Telegdy, president of Alternative and Late Night Programming for 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."

    They'll drop the Wig for sure. No way they'll offer that scarecrow another contract.

    Also, Wiggy will claim how he didn't want to do another season.

    NBC get their ass kick all year, until there is 0.0 competition in the summer. It won't be long until Comcast cleans house.

    As long as Wigboy is married to Beff and AGT is on the air, Wigboy will do AGT. Bank on it

    Not to mention the pay cut he already took and still signed on for another season.

    I don't get the lack of competition. It wouldn't be hard to crush AGT in the ratings. If ABC or CBS stole an idea from basic cable (Duck Dynasty or Deadliest Catch) they could dominate the time slot.

    American Ninja Warrior turns a terrific display of athleticism (the original Sasuke competition in Japan), and instead tries to showcase "characters", and why you should root for certain people. It's awful tripe, and stupid.

    Wiggy will stay hired; NBC is not going to admit moving the production staff to NYC to accommodate him was a failure.

    I agree, both because of the Beth factor and because he'd be freaked out that the ratings would go up with his departure. they can try and spin the decline when he joined up but they'd be hard pressed to explain away the decline followed by and uptick on his departure. he probably prays that the show is cancelled.

    Yeah, I think they're gonna keep Wiggy. He'll maybe get another salary cut, but they'll want to keep him at least a little longer I think. The official press release specifically listed all of the judges, but I admit that doesn't necessarily mean anything.

    Would love to be wrong though.

    I think they are going to give him less concessions next yr. He will have to travel more but I do.t see them keepin him if other judges ask for more. I think they replace him with Jon Stamos and America wouls be like Wiggie who?
    cant see him getting more money

    He really didnt go on that show andpull a Regis Philbman,like w/
    So You Want to Be a Millionaire
    but Wiggie accomplished what he set out to do to show he is not TV poison to advertiser, audiences of women and get over his fear of being on Tv weekly (looks)
