If you’re NBC and you have exactly one hit show, what do you want?  More of it.
Beginning the week of April 2, THE VOICE will air on both Mondays and Tuesdays, with live performance shows 8-10PM on Mondays and eliminations 9-10PM on Tuesdays.  It’ll therefore be airing against both weekly installments of Dancing With the Stars on ABC, which can’t thrill the Alphabet much, since the new Tuesday Voice hour will certainly draw bigger crowds than the 2d hour of The Biggest Loser has been able to do all season.

NBC will also aim for a seamless segue of broadcast season into summer by ending The Voice on May 8 (in a special 2-hour episode), and then starting up AMERICA’S GOT TALENT (with new judge Howard Stern) on May 14-15, which will then continue into the off-season.  .
