NBC announces new, returning summer shows

Posted on at


NBC announced Thursday its summer plans, which include the return of “Love in the Wild,” a collaboration and a new drama.

Hosted by Jenny McCarthy, “Love in the Wild” -- a sort of “Survivor”-inspired dating show -- will get a two-hour premiere Thursday, June 7, before settling into its regular Thursday time slot at 9 p.m.

Joining the adventure-dating show on the network June 7 is “Saving Hope,” an hourlong drama set in the medical world. The 10 p.m. drama centers on a chief of surgery (Michael Shanks / “Stargate Atlantis”) whose sudden illness causes a stir for his wife (Erica Durance / “Smallville”) and the medical facility where he works.

And the network will again team with G4, a sister cable network, to air “American Ninja Warrior,” a competition series in search of the ultimate athlete. G4 will air the preliminary rounds starting Sunday, May 20, with NBC broadcasting the preliminary finals and grand finale.
