NBC has announced America's Got Talent's third season will premiere with a two-hour broadcast on Tuesday, June 24 at 9PM ET/PT.
Following its debut, NBC will air another America's Got Talent two-hour broadcast on Tuesday, July 1 at 9PM ET/PT, with one-hour episodes commencing July 8 in its regular Tuesdays at 9PM ET/PT time slot.

America's Got Talent is one of six reality shows NBC is planning to air this summer. In addition to America's Got Talent's third-season premiere, the network has also announced that American Gladiators' second-season will debut Monday, May 12 at 8PM ET/PT; Last Comic Standing's sixth season will premiere Thursday, May 22 at 9:30PM ET/PT; Nashville Star's sixth season will debut Monday, June 9 at 9:30PM ET/PT; Celebrity Circus will premiere Wednesday, June 11 at 9PM ET/PT; and The Baby Borrowers will debut Wednesday, June 25 at 8PM ET/PT.
