‘The Voice’ Renewed For Two More Seasons

Submitted by on September 26, 2012 – 11:49 am Comments

It can at times be debated whether some of the contestants on ‘The Voice’ hit the right notes or not. But there is no debating the fact that, ‘The Voice’ is hitting just the right notes, as far as ratings are concerned. Therefore it’s wasn’t surprising when NBC decided to pick the show up for two more seasons. Alright, it was a little surprising that it was picked up for two more seasons, probably one would have been more prudent, because the ratings game as we all know is pretty fickle.

It could be possible that, the show might exhibit a slump in ratings the next season, but NBC would still be stuck with it for another season after that. For now, the popularity of the show is at an all-time high, and the channel is probably assuming, the honeymoon period is here to last. Also, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt reinforced the network’s confidence in the show in his renewal statement: “With the addition of Usher and Shakira as rotating coaches to join Christina, Cee Lo, Adam and Blake in the next cycle, we know that this incredibly addictive program will remain even more relevant as we move forward through this exciting season.”

So basically, Robert Greenblatt voiced the logic that has gone behind renewing the show for two seasons, only time will tell if the logic holds any water. One has to agree that, rotating coaches might be a good idea, as it can help the show remain fresh and relevant. In addition, the anticipation of seeing new coaches and how they deal with the contestants might also be something that, might keep the viewers hooked on to the show.

It also worth mentioning that, only exceptionally popular shows like ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and ‘Survivor’, are given two-cycle-per-season run and now, ‘The Voice’ has joined that prestigious club. Shows like “The X Factor” and “American Idol” on the other hand are given one-cycle-per-season, which is a more cautious and calculated approach, and going by the ratings of the two shows, it also has to be called a sensible approach.
