NBC Summer Includes 'Talent', 'Marriage Ref' & New Reality Shows

NBC has announced its summer schedule, with several returning favorites and a few new reality series.

'America's Got Talent' will premiere on Tuesday while the second-season of 'The Marriage Ref' will premiere on Sunday, June 26, as it features a new twist with the disputing couple in the studio.

At the end of each episode, the audience will also vote for The Rightest of the Right who will receive $25,000 and a billboard in their hometown saying they are right.

'Talent' has been the top rated summer series in total viewers for the past five seasons but 'Ref' has struggled. Producers are hoping the new changes will reinvigorate interest in the series.

Moving on to new shows, 'It's Worth What?' hosted by Cedric The Entertainer will features contestants who must guess the prices of items in various rounds, including items like a hidden gem found in an attic, with a chance to win up to $1 million.

Meanwhile, 'Still Standing', based on the hit Israeli series of the same title, will offer contestants the chance to win by out-guessing 10 opponents in 10 fast-paced and dramatic trivia battles.

'Love in the Wild', billed as an "adventure dating series", will feature ten single men and ten single women as they head deep into the remote jungles of Costa Rica and paddle down crocodile-infested waters, for example. At the end of each episode, two people will be sent home as the couples will reveal whether a connection has formed or if they would like to switch and get to know someone else.

Finally, 'The Voice', hosted by Carson Daly, will debut on Tuesday, April 26. Featuring musician 'coaches' Christina Aguilera (photosChristina Aguilera photos), Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, the show will attempt to find the singer who will receive the grand prize of a recording contract and $100,000.

NBC will also air the final seasons of 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent', starting Monday, May 30, and 'Friday Night Lights', starting Friday, April 15.
