Due to the "decent" ratings delivered by Monday's telecast of Victoria Beckham: Coming to America, NBC has decided to bump this week's ERpeat and encore the special tonight at 10 pm/ET, as well as have Posh herself host the entire night's programming. With the opportunistic endeavor decided upon at the last minute, the Peacock rushed camera crews to Beckham's home to tape her reading interstitial copy. "[New NBC Entertainment chief] Ben [Silverman] just cut through everything and got it done," a source tells Variety. Yeah, but could he get her to smile? Didn't think so.
