NBC has renewed “The Voice” for the spring and fall of 2012. No surprise.
Ratings have held up very well this fall. On Monday night, even against all original shows and Monday Night Football, the show drew a sold 12 million viewers and a 3.9 18-49 rating, second best of the night behind only football.
Sure, it’s easy to forget most of the singers (though I did like the last woman last night named Cassaddee Pope, who brought a lot of character and spirit, if not always pitch, to her take on “Torn.”) But it’s easy to take in.
Not much going on in the “Idol” world that I can find. Britney Spears get rainbow hair extensions? Keith Urban tells press he’s having a great time doing auditions for “Idol.” Nicki Minaj launches Playful Pink perfume. Yup, that’s what’s going on people.
And Andy Williams died. That has nothing to do with “Idol” or “X Factor” or “The Voice” but it’s worth noting because he was an icon, whose Christmas music kept him relevant until his death. He was one of the last of that generation who was still alive.
