NBC Needs Revamped The Voice to Deliver the Goods
With two new judges (Shakira and Usher), new vitality and a whole lot of
fans, The Voice returns at 8pm to convert a floundering, unwatched
expanse of airtime -- NBC prime on Mondays and Tuesdays -- into the best
piece of real estate on television.
The second half of the successful
freshman drama Revolution returns, too (at 10pm). Success, if not
victory, is assured over the next three months. NBC won November sweeps
last fall for the first time in nine years, thanks to the previous
edition of The Voice and Sunday Night Football.
