‘The Voice’ Renewed for a Second Season

Jill Johnson,

The Voice‘ has been one of the year’s highest-rated new TV series, so it’s hardly surprising that NBC has announced it will return a second season. The singing contest, which features celebrity coaches Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, has averaged 11.8 million viewers per episode, becoming the highest-rated TV debut since CBS’ ‘Undercover Boss‘ last year.

Next season, ‘The Voice’ will air in a new time slot on a night that will offer plenty more for music fans to sing about. It will kick off halfway through NBC’s fall season and will start airing on Mondays, from 8:00 – 10:00 PM ET. Following the show, former ‘American Idol‘ contestant Katharine McPhee will appear in a new musical drama, ‘Smash,’ co-starring Debra Messing and Angelica Huston, which will air at 10:00 PM.

“Next season begins the rebuilding of the NBC primetime schedule, and our goal is to reinvigorate our audience with a line-up of appointment television that includes our best returning shows and a variety of innovative and attention-getting new series,” explains Bob Greenbalt, Chairman of NBC Entertainment. “With a powerful new asset like ‘The Voice’ already in hand, we go into the 2011-12 season with cautious but incredible optimism.”

There’s no word yet on whether the four ‘Voice’ coaches will return for another season. ‘The Voice’ currently airs on Tuesday nights at 9:00 PM ET.
