NBC has greenlit a tenth season for its hit talent competition series, "America's Got Talent."
Hosted by Nick Cannon, with judges including Mel B and Heidi Klum, the tenth season was announced during a network presentation earlier this month.
"America’s Got Talent” has brought the variety format back to the forefront of American culture by showcasing unique performers from across the country. The series is a true celebration of the American spirit, featuring a colorful array of singers, dancers, comedians, contortionists, impressionists, jugglers, magicians, ventriloquists and hopeful stars, all vying for their chance to win America’s hearts and the $1 million prize.
“America’s Got Talent” is the summer’s #1 reality series on the Big 4 networks in every key measure — adults, men and women 18-49, 18-34 and 25-54, as well as total viewers — plus kids 2-11 and teens 12-17 according to NBC. The five regular “Talent” originals that have aired thus far have delivered the summer’s top five results among all primetime entertainment telecasts on the Big 4 networks so far this summer in both 18-49 and total viewers, beating every episode of every entertainment series on ABC, CBS and Fox in “plus same day” results.
This is the ninth consecutive season that “America’s Got Talent” has reigned as the top reality show of the summer in total viewers.
“Talent” is averaging a 3.1 rating, 10 share in adults 18-49 and 12.4 million viewers overall in “most current” averages from Nielsen Media Research.
The tenth season of "America's Got Talent" will air in 2015.
