I decided this season that I wasn't going to drive myself crazy trying to watch The X-Factor and The Voice and try to keep up with my favorite scripted series at the same time. It's too hard to keep up with everything and frankly, I'm kind of burned out on singing competitions. So, it's back to just one singing competition a year for me. See you in January, American Idol.
While a handful of shows made their debuts last week, this week the major networks will begin to really roll out their fall programming. In addition to the return of some beloved series, tonight has a few new items on the menu, including a CBS comedy and two suspenseful looking dramas. Check out the trailers ahead!
September is upon us, and with it comes the return of our favorite TV shows, as well as the premieres of many of the new series on deck to debut on network and cable TV. From the early starters, including Boardwalk Empire, Sons of Anarchy and The Legend of Korra, to the October arrivals, including Grimm, American Horror Story: Coven and The Walking Dead and everything in between, we have plenty to look forward to this fall!
The Voice has done a lot of things for NBC and to shake-up the reality competition field, but the show hasn’t yet produced a serious hitmaker, when compared to singing competition shows like American Idol, but even The X Factor, which recently saw runner-up Fifth Harmony hit over a million page views on YouTube for the group’s new single. Even though The Voice winners haven’t gained quite as much prominence, judges Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera still defend the show.
Earlier this week, CBS showed us their Fall 2013 TV premiere schedule. Today, NBC has followed suit, laying out the premiere dates for their new and returning series this fall, including the return of The Voice, Grimm and Revolution, as well as new series Dracula, The Michael J. Fox Show, The Blacklist and Sean Saves the World
Adam Levine may have stirred up some controversy on the May 28 episode of NBC’s The Voice, but the hit singing competition series is as popular as ever. To celebrate the show’s success, the network is putting together two extra-long episodes of The Voice in June.
If you tuned into The Voice last night, or watched the video, and you were willing to sit through the overly extended pre-results pause that drags on just before the results were announced, you likely heard Adam Levine's response, which was simply, "I hate this country." It comes in at the 1:15 mark in the clip and is heard through the audio, though Levine is not on screen at the time.
While American Idol may be looking at a complete judges-table overhaul, The Voice is going back to its original judges line-up for its upcoming fifth season this fall. Where does that leave Shakira and Usher? They'll be back for Season 6. Host Carson Daly has been confirmed to resume his duties for both of the upcoming seasons of the NBC singing competition.
It looks like The Voice will probably do another switcheroo before next season. When Season 1-3 judges Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green opted to take a break from NBC’s hit singing competition series, there was a presumption that the two singers would be back as mentors at some point, although no one knew exactly when. On Monday, news broke that Aguilera has signed a new contract with The Voice for Season 5 and that Green is well on his way to doing the same thing.
A day ahead of their upfront presentation, NBC has posted their 2013-2014 schedule, which lays out where most of the new and returning series will air throughout the week come next fall. A few notable schedule changes appear to be taking place, including a move to Wednesdays for Revolution and a shift to Thursdays for Parenthood. Absent from the list is Community, but NBC did include it among the scripted series confirmed to return, so it will be back. It's just a matter of when.
After weeks of blind auditions, battles and knock-outs, The Voice's fourth season is finally ready to go live! The Live Playoffs begin tonight as part of a three-night event on NBC. And as the teaser above indicates, this event also includes a performance by former judge Cee Lo Green, which you'll have to see to believe. Given Cee Lo's flare for dramatic costumes and performances, NBC may not be exaggerating there.
NBC wasn't exactly taking a huge risk when they moved Grimm from its Friday night time slot to Tuesday night. Shows tend to do better when they aren't tucked away on Friday nights. Still, fans of the supernatural drama were likely hopeful that the shift from Fridays to Tuesdays would yield a noticeable ratings bump, especially when factoring in the Voice lean-in. Sure enough, the move has given Grimm a much deserved boost in numbers.
It’s been a quick and graceless fall for American Idol in Season 13. Despite having judges who actually know what they are talking about and mostly manage not to waste anyone’s time (sans Mariah), Fox’s hit singing competition series has continually slipped in the ratings. Last night, more salt was rubbed in the wound when this week The Voice beat American Idol’s ratings for the first time in history.
Most people guessed The Voice would spell a real ratings bringer for some of NBC’s other programming when it returned to the schedule. True to form, last night’s episode o NBC's hit singing competition, managed to push NBC’s sitcoms, Go On and The New Normal, into some legitimately decent ratings
For a show that’s supposed to focus on the contestants, the introduction for Season 4 of NBC’s The Voice highlighted the judges, which was pretty fitting for the new season, since new judges Shakira and Usher had yet to prove their value. It didn’t take long, however. The two new Voice judges weren’t shy about bantering with their judging counterparts, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine, who have racked up three season wins combined.
