The Voice Battle Rounds Judges

NBC's Thursday night line-up continues to perform poorly. The network has come up with a way to shore up it's numbers for a wee during November sweeps. On Thursday, November 7 at 8PM, it will air a special hour long episode of The Voice in which the results of America's votes for the top performers will be announced and the coaches will announce their final teams.

 

Here is NBC's description:

The Voice"

"THE LIVE PLAYOFFS, RESULTS"

11/07/2013 (08:00PM - 9:01PM) (Thursday) : LIVE RESULTS – America’s vote will put through the top two artists from each team and the coaches will each save one artist leaving them to move on to the next phase of the competition. Carson Daly ("Last Call with Carson Daly") hosts.

    WttF will be on air as long as Community isn’t ready.

    I don’t care what any of you say, this is smart. NBC should permanently move The Voice to Wednesdays and Thursdays where they can crush X-Factor along with the rest of the competition. With CBS’ Monday sitcom line-up dying out, NBC can move their sitcoms there to try and gain some traction while staying the hell away from The Big Bang Theory.

    And with Shield not living up to expectations, NBC can actually try and compete by moving its Wednesday shows to Tuesday. I don’t see them beating NCIS at 8pm, but 9pm is doable if they play their cards right. And 10pm is completely theirs for the taking. I can see this all working out for NBC if they make this a permanent move.

    I bet American Idol would come back on a Monday just to stay away from NBC’s vocal juggernaut.

    I wonder how bad the Roseanne comedy was that NBC passed on it. It should have been broad enough to get at least 6-8 million viewers regularly.

  • Linda

    So the time was changed from 9:00 to 8:00?

    I am not sure if any of those things are preferential treatment.
    NBC has never cancelled a higher rated sitcom while renewing (favoring) Parks.

    It didn’t end up after The Office until season 3 and then did not for season 4 but did for season 5. By season 5 this was no massive favor for the show.
    They did not even have a Wednesday Comedy spot on the schedule until season 4 was in production.
    Also although the show would improve in the eyes of the critics a 59 out of 100% on Metacritic is not poor but rather mixed.

    By the second season awards nominations began to happen.

    I just don’t see any way Micheal1’s idiotic assertion makes sense. ;-)

    Wait…

    If the performance shows are on Monday and Tuesday, then why not air the results show on Wednesday.

    I know that mark burnet and Simon cowel made a deal awhile ago not to air their shows on the same night but they did last year briefly on Wednesday. I wonder if they made an agreement to change it to Thursday instead

    I know the cast will never do it but I wonder what will happen if NBC had a Friends reunion…

  • Dorothy5334

    Yeah it’s more than likely than a friends movie..

  • Samunto

    How many live shows are meant to air? 4 like they did in UK and about what will be done in Germany?

  • Networkman

    Hopefully ABC would have moved Once Upon a Time in Wonderland to another night by then to avoid The Voice. Anyways, I’m really interested in seeing how this will effect Sean Saves the World. I think NBC will be happy if it can pull a 2.0 after The Voice.

    NBC will continue to fail and fail again by releasing comedies that are simply NOT FUNNY and DO NOT APPEAL TO A WIDE AUDIENCE. It’s amazing how clueless they are. I love Parks and Recreation, but it doesn’t appeal to a wide audience. Neither did The Office, it had a bigger audience than Parks and pulled decent numbers to be renewed time and time again, but it was never a true hit like Seinfeld, 2.5 Men, Friends, BBT, etc.
