NBC has set a few more pieces in its summer schedule puzzle, slotting new unscripted series The Winner Is … and Hollywood Game Night and acquired drama Crossing Lines. The Nick Lachey-hosted The Winner Is …, where each episode features six acts that go head to head and sing for a shot at a $1 million grand prize, will premiere July 11 and air in the Thursday 9-10 PM slot. It will be followed at 10 PM by the Jane Lynch-hosted Hollywood Game Night, which features A-list celebrities partaking in a cocktail party atmosphere that is based on the real-life game nights of creator Sean Hayes. Ed Bernero’s Crossing Lines will launch June 23 with a two-hour premiere from 9-11 PM and will air in the Sunday 10 PM slot starting June 30. NBC previously scheduled Get Out Alive With Bear Grylls and American Ninja Warrior on Monday, America’s Got Talent on Tuesday and Wednesday, new dramedy Camp on Wednesday, and burn-off comedy Save Me from 8-9 PM on Thursdays beginning May 23.
