NBC May Rush New Season of ‘The Voice’ Into Fall 2012 Lineup — And Three of the Four Judges May Be Replaced

Feb 8, 2012  •  Post A Comment

NBC is considering debuting a new cycle of "The Voice" in fall 2012 instead of waiting until 2013 to return for another midseason run, reports TheWrap.com.

The network has signed judge Christina Aguilera for the next cycle, which, if it airs in the fall, would compete directly with Fox’s "X Factor," the piece notes. The singer’s deal signs her to tape a program from September to December.

Aguilera may be the only judge among the show’s current four-person panel to return for a fall show, reports Joe Adalian in New York Magazine’s Vulture blog.

That’s because her fellow judges — Cee-Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine — may not have the time to commit to another cycle within the same calendar year, the story notes. NBC is considering bringing on three new judges to join Aguilera, the piece adds.

A representative for NBC said the network hasn’t made a decision about a fall broadcast, according to TheWrap.com.


  1. This is a HUGE mistake on NBC’s part.
    This is how they ruined “Last Comic Standing” by running a Summer and Fall edition on either side of the 2004 Olympics.
    Keep “The Voice” at midseason. They’re clearly not interested in actually rebuilding their network as opposed to continuing to limp along.

  2. Yeah I don’t think it’s a good call on NBC’s part. Replacing the 3 other judges on the show would probably make me lose interest as well.
