After the laughs, Victoria will introduce her popular special, "Victoria Beckham: Coming to America," which premiered as the #1 show in adults 18-49 from 8-9 p.m. on Monday, July 16. The special, which averaged a 2.2 rating, 7 share in adults 18-49 and 5.0 million viewers overall, gave NBC a 29 percent increase on the network's 18-49 average in the time period this summer and a 57 percent jump in the slot week-to-week.
