NBC will air new I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here nearly daily for a month

This summer, NBC is bringing back I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, and will air the series almost every weekday for an entire month. The network will also air a fourth season of America’s Got Talent, with its new host, and a new family road trip series.

I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here 2–which I’m calling it because NBC stubbornly refused to rename it, pretending as if the ABC version never happened–will be broadcast for three weeks from Monday to Thursdays from 8 to 9 p.m. ET starting June 1, and then for its last week from Monday to Wednesday, ending June 24. That’s The network was negotiating to bring back the series back in February, and a report mentioned 12 episodes, but NBC will air 15 episodes, just like ABC did.

NBC describes its version in a press release as “the ultimate Swiss Family Robinson as ten celebrities are dropped into the heart of the jungle to face fun and comedic challenges designed to test their survival skills,” and “America is the puppetmaster, controlling their favorite celebrities by putting them into challenges and tasks to win food, supplies and luxury items.” The winner gets money for charity.

The network’s other new summer reality series, Great American Road Trip, is an eight-episode series produced by BBC Worldwide on which “seven families from divergent backgrounds are selected” to “travel through cities large and small all while competing in a medley of humorous challenges that will ultimately lead one family to victory.” The network describes them as “comical, clever challenges,” which means they’re already trying too hard and it’ll probably be insufferable.
