“Spy TV” to air twice a week

Following strong ratings for the debut of Spy TV last Thursday, NBC has scheduled a second weekly airing of the show, described by numerous critics as an “extreme” Candid Camera. In a statement, NBC Entertainment President Jeff Zucker said, “We’ve heard the viewers loud and clear, and [we] want to give them as much original comedy during the summer as we can. This is a funny show, and the viewers got that. Now they’ll get even more.” The series, hosted by Michael Ian Black, a regular on NBC’s Ed, is produced by Endemol Entertainment, the company responsible for Big Brother and Chains of Love.
