NBC has announced Last Comic Standing's sixth season will premiere with a 90-minute broadcast on Thursday, May 22 at 9:30PM ET/PT.

Following its debut, NBC will air 90-minute Last Comic Standing sixth-season broadcasts in its regular Thursdays at 8:30PM ET/PT time slot beginning May 29.

For the first time in the show's history, Last Comic Standing will use a "revolving door" of past and present NBC comedy series stars to serve as talent scouts for the sixth season.

Also new to the show's sixth season will be a slight tweak of the prize package, with the winner receiving a brand new Honda to go along with an NBC talent contract deal and $250,000. 

Similar to the show's Summer 2007 fifth season, NBC went global for Last Comic Standing sixth-season auditions -- with stops in 14 countries around the world, including England, Australia, Sweden, South Africa, India, Japan and Israel.

NBC gave an early renewal to Last Comic Standing last August, and also revealed fifth-season host Bill Bellamy would reprise his role.  British television personality Fearne Cotton will serve as a Last Comic Standing sixth-season correspondent.

Last Comic Standing is one of six reality shows NBC is planning to air this summer. 

In addition to Last Comic Standing's sixth-season premiere, the network has also announced that American Gladiators' second-season will debut Monday, May 12 at 8PM 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; America's Got Talent's third season will debut Tuesday, June 24 at 9PM ET/PT; and The Baby Borrowers will debut Wednesday, June 25 at 8PM ET/PT.
