'The Voice' Announces Second Night for Live Shows Starting in April
Also, "America’s Got Talent" with new judge Howard Stern debuts with a two-hour episode on Monday, May 14.
Having started its battle rounds this week, NBC's The Voice will expand to two nights for the live shows starting on April 2.
Live performance shows will air for two hours on Mondays, with the eliminations announced during a one-hour results show airing Tuesdays, both starting at 8 p.m.
The network also said Wednesday that the final live show will air Monday, May 7, with the winner announced during a two-hour live finale Tuesday, May 8.
America’s Got Talent — with its new judge, shock jock Howard Stern — will premiere the week after with two-hour episodes Monday and Tuesday, May 14 and 15. It will return to its regular one-hour slot on Mondays and Tuesdays the following week.
Starting April 3, NBC's Tuesday night lineup will be The Biggest Loser at 8 p.m., The Voice at 9 p.m. and new series Fashion Star — which premieres Tuesday, March 13, with model Elle Macpherson, singer Jessica Simpson and designers John Varvatos and Nicole Richie — at 10 p.m.
The Voice has been a consistent ratings winner for NBC. This week, fast affiliate ratings showed a 13 percent jump in viewers for the reality competition over last week versus the Daytona 500 on Fox, driving the ad-coveted adults 18-49 rating to a 6.1. Along with new musical drama Smash, the network won the night in ratings and total viewers.
