NBC continues to reveal more and more of its 2019-20 lineup, with the unsurprising renewals of 2 unscripted titles.
“America’s Got Talent: The Champions” and “World of Dance” have both been renewed by the network today. “AGT: The Champions,” a spin-off of the original “America’s Got Talent,” will be returning for its second season, while “World of Dance” has been renewed for its fourth.
“America’s Got Talent: The Champions,” which aired its first season earlier this year, has been a likely renewal from the very beginning. Featuring a variety of different winners and fan-favorite performers from previous “AGT” seasons, the series was a strong ratings performer for NBC.
While it never hit quite the same highs as “America’s Got Talent,” “The Champions” still averaged a strong 1.7 live + same day rating in the adults 18-49 demo, making it NBC’s third-highest-rated title of the season so far. Its renewal comes as no surprise.
Airing in-season for the first time, “World of Dance” has suffered a bit of a ratings drop in its third season, averaging a 0.8 rating Sunday nights, against much heavier competition than its previous two seasons faced, which had aired in the summer. With that being said, the show is still a solid unscripted title for NBC, and will be back for at least one more season.
