'The Voice' premiere ratings steady, no Olympics boost


Despite all those ads pushing The Voice to tens of millions during the Olympics, the NBC singing competition didn’t see any improvement from last year. NBC’s two-hour premiere delivered 15.7 million viewers and a 4.7 rating among adults 18-49 on Monday night. That’s a fine number, though down a tad from last spring when the show wasn’t getting that extra marketing.

While NBC wasn’t helped by its Sochi coverage, Fox notably wasn’t helped by the lack of Olympics competition last night — Almost Human and The Following were both down a tenth from last week when they faced NBC’s coverage.

On CBS, the comedy block was all down between 5 and 22 percent from their last original episodes in early February, with HIMYM holding up the best and Mom dropping 21 percent to tie its series low. Intelligence was unchanged. ABC’s Bachelor perked up 9 percent, while Castle was steady. The CW’s Star-Crossed did not improve from last week’s launch. Full chart: READ FULL STORY

Cee Lo on 'The Voice': 'I'm not coming back, guys'

Fans of The Voice, you may want to sit down for this: Cee Lo Green is leaving the show.

The musician appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in an episode airing Wednesday to talk about joining Lionel Richie on tour, and when DeGeneres asked him what he’s up to now, he revealed he’s leaving The Voice for good.

“I’m going to continue my relationship with NBC, I have a television show development deal with them as well, and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year. But yeah, I’m going to miss The Voice too,” he said before turning to the audience and saying, “I’m not coming back, guys.”

This was news to DeGeneres, who thought he was just taking a leave from the show to go on tour. “I don’t want to wear out my welcome there. I have so many other things I want to do, I haven’t released an album in four years,” Green said. 

So Green is getting back to music, which is great news for fans of his catchy tunes. His tour with Richie, dubbed “All the Hits All Night Long” kicks off in May.

On the scene at 'The Voice' season 5 finale: Third place and runner-up contestants talk what's next for them

NBC’s The Voice crowned its season 5 winner and Entertainment Weekly was on the scene at the show’s official post-finale red carpet. Read on to find out what season 5’s third place winner and runner up had to say about the finale and what’s next for them.

On the Scene at 'The Voice' semifinals: Cole Vosbury and James Wolpert say goodbye; plus, Cassadee Pope and the Swon Brothers

On Tuesday night, The Voice said goodbye to Cole Vosbury and James Wolpert before crowning season 5’s top three contestants. EW was on the scene at the live elimination show and got the chance to chat with the newly eliminated contestants right after the show wrapped.

Team Adam’s James Wolpert was the first of two contestants to be eliminated during the semifinals, and the Pittsburgh local said he wasn’t surprised. “I was super prepared for it, but it’s still painful when you’re up there and you have to say goodbye to everybody in the moment,” said Wolpert, who’s looking at being eliminated as “an opportunity to start looking toward the future.”

As for what’s next, it sounds as though Wolpert plans to hit the ground running now that his time on The Voice has come to an end. The singer said he already has “frameworks and very vague foundations” for his own original music. “I think the next goal is going to be to cut a record as soon as I can…and put that out into the universe and go on tour as soon as possible.”

Like Wolpert, Vosbury “just kind of sensed” that he would be going home this week. “Even though I was praying for a miracle, I knew my number was up today, so today was a different experience. I think me and James both were just kind of like, ‘Yeah, it’s us two. It’s going to be us two.’ We knew it all day long.”

'The Voice' top 5 tease song choices for tonight's live performances

Last week, Entertainment Weekly hung out in the recording studio with The Voice top five contestants and got a sneak peek as to what Will Champlin, Tessanne Chin, Jacquie Lee, Cole Vosbury, and James Wolpert will be performing on the show tonight. Unfortunately, we can’t spill the beans as to what each contestant will be singing tonight — song choices must be kept under wraps until the live performances — but we did get a chance to speak with contestants about the thought process behind their songs this week.

Read on to find out what The Voice finalists had to say about what songs they’ll be performing when The Voice airs live at 8 p.m.:

'The Voice' clip: What you didn't see during the live shows -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Fans of NBC’s The Voice are probably all too familiar with the footage you see of contestants’ individual practice sessions with their coaches that rolls just before the singers take the stage. Oftentimes, this footage puts its central focus on showing the contestants fine-tuning their singing, but if this new exclusive clip from NBC is anything to go by, there’s a lot that ends up on the cutting-room floor in the editing process.

The short, two-minute clip features a nice mix of lighthearted moments between the coaches and their contestants. Most notably, we see Preston Pohl joking around with Coach Adam Levine about how The Voice has changed him for the worst, Nic Hawk making good on his promise of trying to teach Coach Blake Shelton how to dance, and CeeLo Green getting his groove on with the house band.

All in all, it’s nice to see that despite tonight’s looming elimination night, there’s still room for fun to be hand on set among contestants and coaches alike.

'The Voice' contestant Nic Hawk says 'it's really anybody's game at this point'

On Monday NBC’s The Voice kicked off the first night of its live shows with performances from members of Team Adam and Team Blake.

Team Blake contestant Nic Hawk, now notorious for his unique and upbeat renditions of Top 40 singles, got the crowd going with an energetic performance of Robin Thicke, Pharrell, and T.I.’s summer hit, “Blurred Lines.”

If the audience reaction to Hawk’s performance on Monday night was anything to go by, the charismatic pop singer might very well be one of the frontrunners for the singing competition’s fifth season.

Check out what Nic had to say about being on Team Blake and what his strategy is for sticking in the competition below!


'The Voice' stomps 'X Factor' in rare head-to-head battle


Fox’s The X Factor sunk to another all-time ratings low Tuesday night when an out-of-pattern telecast resulted in a rare head-to-head fight against NBC’s singing competition hit The Voice.

Simon Cowell and Co. faced Christina Aguilera’s crew for the first time this fall, with both shows airing two-hour telecasts that overlapped in the 9 p.m. hour. Factor averaged 4.8 million viewers and a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49 — less than half the audience and adult demo rating for The Voice.

But to be fair, Factor entered this ring with some real disadvantages (aside from the show itself, which typically delivers significantly smaller ratings than The Voice). Factor has been preempted the last couple weeks due to Fox’s baseball coverage — Tuesday is not Factor‘s usual night, so The Voice had a home-field advantage. Any pattern interruption can shed viewers, and last night’s Factor aired on both a different night and after skipping some airings.

Also, The Voice did not escape this fight without taking some damage too — last night’s episode was down 15 percent to a season low.

Still, seeing Cowell’s big music competition show several tenths of a rating point away from The CW’s Supernatural and getting beaten outright by NBC’s The Biggest Loser is pretty striking.

Also Tuesday: ABC’s freshman sitcom The Goldbergs held steady despite not having a new episode of of SHIELD for a lead-in, and Trophy Wife improved a bit; CBS’ Person of Interest fell to a series low (this new time slot has not been good for its health). Full chart:


'The Voice': Which coach makes a big steal next week? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

With the Battle rounds in full swing, things are getting tense in The Voice-box.

In this exclusive preview of next week’s matchups, artists Matt Cermanski and Brian Pounds feel the pressure to live up to their famous mentors, Ryan Tedder and Cher.

Looks like the judges are starting to feel the pressure of Blake’s triple win too — Christina looks more damsel in distress than diva when she’s faced with a difficult decision. Adam scores such a sensational steal, even he can’t believe it.
