via press release:

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — May 30, 2013 — NBC’s hit competition series “The Voice” will expand to two hours for the live June 10 and June 17 episodes.

For the June 10 program, the remaining artists will sing for both the coaches — Adam Levine, Shakira, Blake Shelton and Usher — as well as nationwide audience. At-home viewers will begin voting at the show’s conclusion to see who moves on and who is eliminated.

The final artists will perform on the June 17 telecast, competing one last time before the newest champion is announced the following night.

For the recently completed 2012-13 traditional television season, the Monday edition of “The Voice” averaged a 5.2 rating, 14 share in adults 18-49 and 14.4 million viewers overall, making it the #3 primetime series on the broadcast networks in adults 18-49, the #2 entertainment series and the #1 reality series.

It’s the first time in 10 years, since the 2002-03 season, that Fox’s “American Idol” has not ranked #1 among reality series in 18-49. The current cycle of “The Voice” has ranked #1 in its slot in 18-49 with every regular Monday and Tuesday telecast so far this cycle (excludes recaps).

The Voice” is a presentation of Mark Burnett’s One Three Inc., Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series was created by John de Mol, who executive-produces along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Stijn Bakkers and Lee Metzger.

    “What’s left for NBC to do on a Tuesday?” is what they’re asking because not that many series were doing that well on that night during the summer. So i guess the best thing to do is to do this.

  • David

    NBC is treading on very thin ground. Their schedule is already saturated enough with The Voice, if people get tired of this show then there’s nowhere to go but down.

  • NBC Fan

    This sounds really stupid. Two hours for the final four and three performances is just unnecessarily long.

  • DenverDean

    NBC really should move CF to Tuesday at 10/9 now to get a heads up on the new schedule and to let TV viewers get a peek at the series. For the most part – paraphrase the old NBC promo for repeats “it’s new to them.”

  • Kangarookeeper

    More Voice is always good news for me!

  • Dennis

    WHY is The Voice airing so far into June???

    Stupid decision by nbc

  • Ralph Hahn

    I would say that overexposure would be the quickest way to get something or someone off the air. But, Alec Baldwin is still on television. Go figure.

  • Jacobo

    Isn’t The Voice already 2 hours on Mondays? #confused

  • Max Vrany

    “Go Pacers!”- NBC

  • JR YOU WING

    The past winners of these stupid singing shows go nowhere. It’s a joke. There is little worth watching on the boob tube. The X-factor USA will get a huge X across it’s time slot in 2014 after it gets axed. Junk. Pure junk. Idol is done. The Voice is getting tiresome. Christina coming back for $17 million shoves Shakira;’s hips out the door, and that don’t lie boyz and girlz.

  • Michael

    The Voice is NBC saving grace. What else is the network going to do when they have an extremely weak scripted series? Besides, The Voice and AGT nothing is really pulling their weight.

  • Mon

    Can’t wait for Voice fatigue.

  • Samunto

    I’m i the only one who thinks that the repeats of the show on weekends haven’t been benefitial to the Mon/Tue telecasts?
    Why bother tuning in when you know you can catch up on weekends?

  • joel

    Just make the network a nonstop contiguous telecast of The Voice and rename it The Voice Network already.

  • TVMAN

    Should be The Country Voice , because 4 out of 6 contestants left are country- it’s kinda annoying

  • DSC

    Also, Hannibal just got renewed for season 2. NBC wasn’t done renewing bottom of the barrel shows just yet. another loss on the prediction table.

  • Newbourne

    NBC should move The Voice to Tuesdays & Wednesdays, and move their comedy block to Mondays where they will face lighter competition.

  • TVMAN

    @NewBourn as much as The Voice brags on how it dominates IDOL- they would both loose a big chunk of their audience if they share the same night. Same with The XF in the fall.

  • Rob R

    American Idol still ended up more popular than The Voice with all viewers included.

  • Sergio

    The voice was already 2 hours schedule for those 2 mondays, wasn’t it?
