Our favorite guilty pleasure of summer is almost upon us! Big Brother just unveiled its eight new houseguests, but the big news was the revelation that former dynamic duos will be returning to play in the game as well. Could we be seeing more of Jeff & Jordan? Dr. Will and Mike Boogie? Evel Dick and daughter Daniele? Or — gulp! — Brendon and Rachel? Jessica Shaw and Lynette Rice join me in ranking which duos we’d like to see and which we hope to never see again. We also relive the hilariously inane twists of past Big Brother seasons (The X-Factor! Summer of Secrets! Project DNA: Do Not Assume!), and give our first impressions of the new cast. It’s a must listen for all Big Brother fans. READ FULL STORY
Tag: The Voice (79-91 of 118)
They’ll be back! NBC announced today that Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cee-Lo Green will return for a second season of The Voice. The quartet wrapped their first season on Wednesday, when Javier Colon was officially named “The Voice.” He scored a recording contract with Universal Republic, a $100,000 cash prize, and a key spot on the summer Voice tour that kicks off July 27 in Los Angeles.
“Our fantastic coaches were integral to the tremendous success of The Voice this year and we are thrilled that they are all returning,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC’s head of alternative programming, in a statement. “We look forward to building season two and making The Voice an even greater experience for fans.”
Season 2 of the show is expected to bow in the winter.
Wednesday’s finale was watched by 10.8 million viewers and received a 3.5 preliminary adults 18-49 rating. It ranked as NBC’s best non-sports performance in this slot in years. (Plus, it was up 6 percent from last week’s season low.
NBC’s first season finale for The Voice ended on a relatively modest note Wednesday night, while new reality show Love in the Wild got off to a tame start.
Airing earlier than usual at 8 p.m. for the second and final week, The Voice — which saw contestant Javier Colon crowned winner — was heard by 10.8 million viewers and received a 3.5 preliminary adults 18-49 rating. That’s easily enough to win the hour and to rank as NBC’s best non-sports performance in this slot in years. (Plus, it was up 6 percent from last week’s season low.) But it’s down from The Voice average and softer than one would expect for the hit show’s last results show. READ FULL STORY
Dia Frampton may not have won The Voice but one thing’s for sure: Wednesday’s runner-up probably won’t be recording any more records with the sound of a dishwasher in the background anytime soon.
The last album she recorded was in her mom’s house in 2010 with her sister Meg. “You can hear the dishwasher in some of the songs because she refused to stop her life for our record,” the 23-year-old recalled to reporters after the show. “But she was adorable.” READ FULL STORY
Minutes after I arrived at Wednesday’s finale of The Voice, it was clear the experience would contain something Tuesday’s penultimate episode lacked— a whole lot of heart.
“We love each other a lot!” Vicci Martinez shouted a minute before the cameras rolled to The Voice’s big reveal, as the final four contestants stood in huddle formation while awaiting their collective fates. Carson Daly then shoved his much-louder mic in her face to allow her to proclaim”We love the f— out of each other!” to the very excited crowd gathered at Stage 16 on Warner Bros.’s Burbank lot.

It’s a good thing Javier Colon won the inaugural season of NBC’s The Voice. Had it not been for the show, he would’ve moved onto Plan B — teaching music to kids.
“Before I came out to do this audition in January, I had been rejected from yet another record label that I really thought [I was] gonna get,” Colon told reporters after the show. “It was over.” As the story often goes, the label passed. Since his two previous records in 2003 and 2006 failed to take off, The Voice was Colon’s last-ditch effort to have a music career. He didn’t even want to audition, but his brother talked him into it. “I thought, I can’t just keep living on a dream and expecting that things are going to work out because it’s not just my wife and I anymore.” READ FULL STORY
Right before the start of Tuesday’s penultimate episode of The Voice, Adam Levine summed up the vibe of the amped-up crowd when he enthusiastically shouted “Let’s get drunk!” The hundreds and hundreds of Californians (not to mention a British couple who happened to sit by me and a bunch of Montana teens) who packed
the 7th circle of Hell a very hot Studio 16 on the Warner Bros. lot seemed thrilled to see their idols perform live, and I’m not just talking about the ones in the red swivel chairs. Javier Colon, Dia Frampton,Vicci Martinez, and Beverly McClellan have already become downloaded stars in their own right, and the fact the finalists would be singing with their coaches made the whole thing a lot more fun to witness for pretty much everyone except Christina Aguilera. But more on her later. READ FULL STORY
