NBC announced today that its new summer series Better Late Than Never has been renewed for a second season. The alternative comedy series is coming off a short four-episode freshman run that brought in impressive ratings for the peacock network.

With an average of 8.1 million viewers and a 1.8 rating average among adults 18-49, the reality show ranks as this summer's #1 new broadcast series. In its Tuesday night time slot, it consistently bested its competition from ABC and CBS in both the demographic and total viewers.

Better Late Than Never follows four American icons - Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw, and George Foreman - along with comedian Jeff Dye in a globetrotting adventure. Season 1 took the group across Asia to experience everything exotic locales in Japan, South Korea, and Thailand have to offer. All five men will return for Season 2, though the continent they travel to has yet to be announced.
