The Tyra Banks/Ashton Kutcher vehicle, in which contestants think they've entered a beauty contest but instead are being judged on morals and character, filmed its second season in Las Vegas. 'Beauty' judges this time around include 'Queer Eye's' Carson Kressley, Beth Ostrosky Stern (wife of Howard) and returning judge Vanessa Minnillo.

The third season of 'Wipeout' begins June 22. Theme episodes include "Ladies Night," "Family Edition" and "Wipeout Blind Date." No word yet on when the big red balls will make their return.

Meanwhile, now that the Olympics are over, NBC has also turned its focus to summer programming. 'America's Got Talent' -- the season's biggest ratings hit -- begins with a two-hour premiere June 1 and another episode June 2, with new judge Howie Mandel replacing David Hasselhoff. 'Last Comic Standing' also has a two-hour premiere, on June 7, then settles in at 9PM Mondays. This time, Craig Robinson (Darryl from 'The Office') hosts.

Premiere dates for its two new shows have been confirmed. The rom-com '100 Questions' begins on Thu., May 27 at 8:30PM ET. 'Persons Unknown,' a mystery drama from the writer of 'The Usual Suspects,' debuts at 10PM on Mon., June 7.
