Better Late Than Never was an appropriate title for NBC’s globe-trotting reality series featuring AARP stars. After sitting on the shelf for a while, the show got a big launch after the Summer Olympics and, following a solid freshman run, it has been renewed for a second season.
In Season 1, Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman and Jeff Dye embarked on a trip to Asia in search of an intimate life-changing experience.
Winkler, Shatner, Bradshaw, Foreman and Dye will all return for the second season. The locale is still TBD.
With a boost from the Olympics, Better Late Than Never was the No. 1 new series introduced by the broadcast networks this past summer, averaging a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 8.1 million viewers overall in “most current” figures from Nielsen.
Craig Zadan & Neil Meron, Winkler, Jason Ehrlich, Alex Katz and Tim Crescenti executive produce. Better Late Than Never is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio in association with Storyline Entertainment, Small World IFT and CJ Entertainment & Media.
The successful original series Grandpa Over Flowers is produced by CJ E&M and currently airs in both China and South Korea.
