The network announced that the Ryan Seacrest-produced reality dating series won't premiere until Tuesday, December 16 at 10PM ET/PT -- immediately following The Biggest Loser: Families' finale broadcast at 8PM ET/PT.
"This strategy for Momma's Boys offers the show a more favorable launch platform," NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios co-chairmen Ben Silverman and Marc Graboff said in explaining the latest programming decision.
Following its December 16 debut, Momma's Boys will begin airing in its regular Mondays at 9PM ET/PT time slot on December 22.
Momma's Boys will begin with three mothers and sons moving in with 32 single women -- some of whom will be "nice girls" the mothers will approve of, and others who won't meet the possessive yet loving moms' high standards.
Once there, the Momma's Boys bachelors will spend six episodes narrowing the women down to their one woman -- and in the process, determine who is the most important woman in each of their lives: their mothers or their new significant others.
