SEASON(S): 1 (7 episodes, 0 of which have yet to air)
ADDITIONAL NOTES: presumably canceled on 3/26/14 as the series was not among nbc's summer 2014 plans
DESCRIPTION: (from NBC's press release, April 2013) The network has also set July 11 as the debut date for its two new summer alternative series "The Winner Is ..." (9-10 p.m. ET) and "Hollywood Game Night" (10-11 p.m. ET). Each will air weekly on Thursday nights. Hosted by Nick Lachey, "The Winner Is ..." infuses the performance of a singing competition series and the strategy of a game show. Each episode features six acts that go head to head each week and sing for a shot at a $1 million grand prize. The aim of the game is simple: Contestants must believe in their own performance, edge out their competition and avoid cash temptations to move forward. The series, produced by Talpa Media USA Inc. and Universal Television, is executive-produced by Stijn Bakkers and Craig Plestis.
