America's Got TalentCouples with hilarious problems take note: NBC is bringing 'The Marriage Ref' back! The Jerry Seinfeld–produced panel discussion series, 'America's Got Talent' and several other new game shows and reality programs round out NBC's summer programming slate.

Joining 'America's Got Talent' and 'The Marriage Ref' are new reality show 'Love in the Wild,' singing competition 'The Voice,' new episodes of 'Law & Order: LA,' game shows 'Still Standing' and 'It's Worth What?' and the basic cable premiere of the final season of 'Friday Night Lights.'

"We want to make it clear that NBC considers the summer as an important part of its overall season and will continue to offer a varied lineup of original programs," Bob Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, said. "Our viewers will have plenty of options with new series such as 'It's Worth What?' and 'Love in the Wild' as well as continuing shows such as 'The Voice' plus returning favorites like 'America's Got Talent.' We even have scripted series such as 'Friday Night Lights,' and episodes of two separate 'Law and Order' franchises as we build momentum toward the fall season."

Check out the premiere dates and more info about the new programs below.

'The Voice' comes to the Peacock network Tuesday, April 26, at 9PM. The singing competition series will see judges/coaches Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton mentor a team of musicians they picked based on their voices alone.

'America's Got Talent' returns to NBC on Tuesday, May 31, at 9PM with a two-hour broadcast. The series will move to one-hour episodes starting Tuesday, June 7 at 9PM. Two-hour episodes begin again Tuesday, July 5–Sept. 6. The Wednesday night episodes begin June 1 at 9PM and last until Sept. 7. The two-hour finale airs Sept. 14.

Cedric the Entertainer hosts 'It's Worth What?', a new game show that tasks contestants to guess the price of items in several rounds. Contestants can win up to $1 million. NBC has not released the premiere date for 'It's Worth What?'

'The Marriage Ref' returns for a season 2 on Sunday, June 26, at 10PM with a few tweaks. The couples will appear in-studio and face the celebrity panel, and the end of each episode will see the studio audience vote to choose "The Rightest of the Right." The studio-selected winner will receive $25,000 and a billboard in his or her hometown declaring he or she is right.

NBC's other game show, 'Still Standing,' features contestants trying to out-guess each other in 10 trivia battles. The contestants could win between $1 and $50,000. The series is based on the hit Israeli series of the same name and concept.

'Love in the Wild' is a dating series that will feature 10 single men and 10 single women in pairs as they explore the jungles of Costa Rica. No premiere date has been set.

NBC's "must see tv" has become "never see tv"... TOTAL CRAP....the morons get rid of the good shows and put on more game shows....ARE YOU KIDDING? game shows and soap operas are and always have been daytime tv for the stay at home parents. keep it there...i can honestly say i will not watch NBC until the shows return in the fall, like "the event" "chase" and "law and order:LA" oh wait, they cancelled those, guess i wont be watching NBC then either, especially when you end a show like the event the way you did, talk about a complete piss off....QUIT LISTENING TO THE NIELSON FAMILIES, THEY NO LONGER WORK. with all the different ways to watch shows,dvr,on line, on demand. people are watching more and more shows. i would bet money if the tv stations would call people and do a survey, they would find out that the nielson families no longer work, you can no longer count one family as several thousand.yars ago if we wanted to watch a show we had to do it when it was on, that is no longer. DO SURVEY'S,NOT NIELSONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THOSE NIELSEN FAMILIES ARE RUINING TV.....NOT HELPING IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! its not just NBC, all the stations are being stupid....people are smarter then they think, we dont actually believe reality tv is true and unscripted....most are not that stupid,but im sure some will argue with me, those ARE the stupid ones.....

I don't like reality and talent shows; so NBC is a rarity on my "to watch list."

I HATE "reality" shows and game shows!!!!! Why is that ALL they are showing this summer? TV needs more scripted shows that keep an audience guessing what will happen next, not a stupid show full of nobodies we'll forget and care less about!
