NBC Announces Summer Schedule

NBC is the summer home for both the Paris Olympic Games and new and returning TV series, including “America’s Got Talent,” “American Ninja Warrior,” “Password,” “The Wall” and “Weakest Link.”  

Leading into summer, “Weakest Link” will air new episodes beginning Tuesday, April 2 at 9 p.m. ET and will move to Mondays starting May 20. “American Ninja Warrior” will also air two specials, including a women’s championship on May 12 at 9 p.m. and a couples’ championship on May 27 at 8 p.m.

“America’s Got Talent” takes the stage May 28 followed by new episodes of “Password.”  The competition continues June 3 with a new season of “American Ninja Warrior” while “The Wall” returns to the schedule July 1. 

All programs will stream on Peacock the day following their NBC telecast.

The 2024 Olympic Games will take place July 26-Aug.11 in Paris. NBC will provide Olympic fans with at least nine hours of daily coverage from each day’s most exciting events. In a Summer Games first, Peacock will stream every sport and event, including all 329 medal events, providing fans with the most-comprehensive Olympic destination in U.S. media history. The 2024 Paris Olympics will be NBC’s 19th Olympic games. NBCUniversal owns the U.S. media rights to the Olympic Games through 2032.



Hosted by Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch, the iconic British import and international game show phenomenon returns with a new batch of episodes, including a special veteran-themed show saluting the troops.

In each episode of the lightning-fast quick-witted series, eight contestants enter the studio as total strangers but must work together to bank the maximum amount of prize money available in each round. The contestants take turns answering general knowledge questions to build chains of correct answers. Consecutive correct answers greatly increase the value of the chain while incorrect answers break the chain and force the contestants to start over from the bottom of the money ladder. The top prize increases with each round but contestants must first vote to eliminate the fellow competitor they consider to be the “Weakest Link” in the chain. The contestant who receives the highest number of votes leaves the game as the host declares the iconic phrase, “You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.”          



The 19th season of “America’s Got Talent” returns with a new set of aspiring performers looking to compete for the ultimate $1 million prize. Executive producer Simon Cowell returns to the star-studded judging panel with global fashion icon Heidi Klum, fan-favorite comedian Howie Mandel and acclaimed actress and international superstar Sofia Vergara. The dynamic Terry Crews returns as host. This season promises to deliver some of the wildest acts to ever grace the “AGT” stage. 

“America’s Got Talent” will kick off the live shows at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium beginning Tuesday, Aug. 13 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT) on NBC. Results shows will air Wednesday nights (8-9 p.m. ET/PT). 


New episodes of the iconic game show “Password” will continue throughout the summer with Emmy Award-winning host Keke Palmer and Jimmy Fallon. The hour-long episodes will include two back-to-back games with recurring player Fallon paired with a contestant competing against a celebrity guest/contestant duo for cash prizes by guessing a secret password using only one-word clues. 

Celebrity guests include Lauren Graham, Howie Mandel, Wiz Khalifa, Johnny Knoxville, Joel McHale, Meghan Trainor, Lindsey Vonn and Roy Wood Jr. 

Palmer, who made Emmy history this year by becoming the first Black woman to win for Outstanding Host for a Game Show, commands the podium while contestants from all walks of life partner with Fallon and other celebrities to face off in the ultimate game of words.
