The network has scheduled already a special one hour episode of The Voice in it’s blind audition stages for Feb. 5th, 2012. The show had been considered for awhile now to take that position, as it already has the momentum going from the first season.
“There is no better showcase on television than to follow the Super Bowl, and we believe ‘The Voice‘ is deserving of such high-profile exposure,” said NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt. “The attention grabbing blind audition phase of ‘The Voice’ has mass appeal and will fittingly team up with the biggest sporting event of the year.”
Fox, on the other hand, is placing it’s new season of American Idol a few weeks prior to the Super Bowl, airing it’s first episode following the NFL’s NFC Conference.
