Upfronts: NBC joins the fray
NBC doesn't want to stay left out.
Even though the network broke from the pack and announced its schedule last month, and it's forgoing its ritzy presentation today at Radio City Music Hall, it has picked up a reality series to premiere after the Olympics.
From Ryan Seacrest Productions comes "Momma's Boy." This reality series puts mommies and their grown sons in a house with several "brides to be." Mommy will help pick the blushing bride.
The network also picked up an unscripted Howie Mandel comedy series, "Howie Do It," two weeks after its lineup was announced.
Onward to the "Universal Experience."
