NBC Sets January 2019 Lineup; Team Coco Heads to New York Comedy Festival

The Titan Games

Looking to begin the new year with off-the-charts alternative muscle, NBC's January lineup is set to include the premiere of The Titan Games, the new epic physical competition series from Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia; the debut of America's Got Talent: The Champions, the global winter edition of the network's summer powerhouse; and the second season of the highly popular series Ellen's Game of Games, from superstar executive producer Ellen DeGeneres. The Titan Games premieres Wednesday, Jan. 2 from 8-10 p.m. and will start airing in its regularly scheduled 8-9 p.m. timeslot beginning Wednesday, Jan. 9. The 10-episode will offer everyday people the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete in remarkable feats designed to test mind, body and heart.

America's Got Talent: The Champions

America's Got Talent: The Champions premieres Monday, Jan. 7 from 8-10 p.m. The series will bring together some of the world's best acts from the international Got Talent franchises, spanning 194 territories, and come to share their talents and compete against one another in an Olympics-style ultimate celebration of worldwide creativity and talent. The series, from NBC, Syco Entertainment and Fremantle, will feature the star-studded judges panel from America's Got Talent - executive producer Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel - and will be hosted by Terry Crews. Ellen's Game of Games premieres Tuesday, Jan. 8 from 8-10 p.m. and will start airing in its regularly scheduled 8-9 p.m. time slot on Tuesday, Jan. 15.


TEAMCOCOHOUSE

Team Coco and TBS are bringing back the successful comedy pop-up which launched last July at San Diego Comic-Con. TEAMCOCOHOUSE will open its doors as part of the 15th annual New York Comedy Festival, on Wednesday, November 7 at SONY HALL, 235 W 46th St New York, NY 10036. The newest version of TEAMCOCOHOUSE will showcase a daily lineup handpicked by Conan – stand-ups, podcasts, musical acts, magicians, a talk show, and special appearances by friends of Team Coco, as well as O'Brien himself. TEAMCOCOHOUSE will feature Tig Notaro, Craig Robinson & The Nasty Delicious, Jenny Slate, Nicole Byer, Justin Willman, Sasheer Zamata, Chris Gethard, Scott Rogowsky, Gabe Liedman, Max Silvestri, and more.

TEAMCOCOHOUSE comes on the heels of the recently announced live tour Conan & Friends: An Evening of Stand-Up and Investment Tips. Team Coco is continuing to build on its joint venture with Turner by having a presence at the New York Comedy Festival, and aggressively increasing its footprint in linear, digital and live formats by collaborating with a team of established and up-and-coming comics to add comedy showcases, live tours, specials and podcasts. Each year, the New York Comedy Festival continues to celebrate comedy in all forms. Now in its 15th year, through events like TEAMCOCOHOUSE, attendees will continue to enjoy unique on-ground activations that elevate the traditional comedy show experience.
