The show's innovative format showcases the live performance shows that follow the blind auditions and the current battle phase.

"America's Got Talent" ranked #1 among non-sports telecast on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox in total viewers every week it aired over the Summer of 2011, making it the #1 summer series in total viewers for a sixth year in a row.

"America's Got Talent," NBC's top-rated summer series from "American Idol" producers FremantleMedia North America and Simon Cowell's SYCO Television, returns with the hottest performers from across the country ready to compete in the blockbuster reality show.
