NBC tweaks its summer schedule

NBC is making a few tweaks to its summer schedule, starting tonight: The 9 p.m. audition episode of “America’s Got Talent” originally set for tonight will now air next Tuesday at 9 p.m. (in place of a repeat “AGT”), leading into another new “AGT” at 10 p.m. for a two-hour block.

Then, on June 22 and June 29, “AGT” will stick with an original at 9 p.m., while NBC will air repeats of “Last Comic Standing” at 10 p.m. (“Losing It with Jillian” continues at 8 p.m.).

“AGT” once again expands to two hours, from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m., in July.

Meanwhile, NBC is switching the order of its Thursday night all-comedy lineup this summer starting July 15: “The Office” will kick off the night at 8 p.m., followed by “Community” (8:30), another “The Office” (9 p.m.), “Parks and Recreation” (9:30), “30 Rock” (10 p.m.) and “Community” (10:30 p.m.)

NBC will air a “Community” marathon, consisting of six episodes, on July 8, and a six-seg “Parks and Recreation” marathon on Aug. 19.

On Saturdays, rather than air “Law and Order” franchise repeats in all three hours as originally announced, the night will include “America’s Got Talent” repeats at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. on most weeks.

“Law and Order” repeats are also being bumped on Sundays, in favor of “Law and Order: Criminal Intent” segs.
