ABC Reveals Summer 2022 Unscripted Slate


ABC has unveiled its summer 2022 lineup, which includes a slew of new and returning series and specials featuring famous faces such as Martha Stewart, Kevin Jonas, Steve Harvey and more.

The summer slate will kick off on May 25, with the premiere of The Great American Tag Sale with Martha Stewart, in which she parts ways with pieces from her vast collection of furniture, art and housewares. Right after, The American Rescue Dog Show, a dog competition featuring rescued companions, will debut.

On July 7, the game show Press Your Luck will return with a new season. The series premiere of Generation Gap, from producers Jimmy Kimmel and Mark Burnett, will follow. Hosted by Kelly Ripa, the comedy quiz game show pairs teams of grandparents and grandkids, challenging them to answer questions about pop culture from each other’s generations.

In addition to Press Your Luck, the game shows Celebrity Family Feud and The $100,000 Pyramid are set to return. They will debut on July 10 at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., respectively, with the series premiere of The Final Straw airing in between. The physical comedy game show sees four teams face off to pull items from life-sized, themed towers without tipping them over.

The new season of The Bachelorette is slated to begin airing on July 11, followed by the series debut of Claim to Fame. Co-hosted by Kevin and Frankie Jonas, the show challenges 12 celebrity relatives to step outside of their famous family member’s shadow and live together under one roof, concealing their lineage while competing in challenges.

ABC has also renewed Judge Steve Harvey and Bachelor in Paradise. Premiere dates for the new seasons will be announced at a later date.
