Hardwick will resume NBC roles after assault claim review

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Hardwick's career is getting back on track after a review of sexual assault allegations made by a former girlfriend.

NBC said that Hardwick will serve as a guest host next Tuesday on "America's Got Talent" and will return as host for season three of "The Wall" game show. Production on "The Wall" is set to begin in the fall.

NBC's confirmation Tuesday that Hardwick was keeping the gigs came a week after AMC said he would return to work at "Talking Dead" and "Talking with Chris Hardwick" following the review.

In announcing its decision, AMC said it was the "appropriate step" after interviewing a number of people in connection with the allegations against Hardwick.

He is scheduled to be back on "Talking Dead" on Aug. 12.
