NBC, for whom this season cannot end too soon, has added a few summer premiere dates to its schedule:
Monday May 21
9PM:    AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR – reality competition series that will air both on NBC and the G4 cable network

Thursday June 7
8PM:    LOVE IN THE WILD – 2d season of reality dating show hosted by Jenny McCarthy
10PM:  SAVING HOPE – Canadian medical drama (this was the timeslot ABC used for the moderately successful Rookie Blue last summer, so unless ABC picks a new slot for the show this year, 2 of the only original scripted shows on network television this summer may face off against each other)
NBC had previously announced that AMERICA’S GOT TALENT will start its summer run May 14 with Monday and Tuesday episodes.
