Less than 24 hours after it's premiere episode, NBC is already shuffling Great American Road Trip off to Monday where it can't damage NBC's one summer success story America's Got Talent.

While Road Trip's 1.3 demo rating was bad, and presumably it will do just as badly on Monday, it won't be able to harm America's Got Talent on Tuesday's any longer. NBC will instead air a repeat of AGT before a new episode.

Here's NBC's announcement:
