Those NBC execs are really messing with Britney Spears‘ mind!
You see, The Voice‘s third episode is going to clash with the premiere of Simon Cowell baby The X Factor this week. Eek!
The Voice starring Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee-Lo Green, and Blake Shelton was supposed to only air Mondays and Tuesday nights in NBC’s fall lineup. In that way, fans of both shows could watch both and not feel like they had to prioritize one or the other.
“This is a cynical, cold-hearted, unprofessional way of doing business. Britney’s not going to appreciate the fact that Christina — who has been a bit of a rival — isn’t allowing Britney to have a night of her own. These guys have really got it in for us. It’s nothing short of dirty tricks… [Britney's] going to be devastated because she’s put her heart and soul into this…. I can’t bear it that the network is playing political games and playing with the audience.”
Simon’s gotta be right- why would NBC put their third Voice up against the premiere of The X Factor if not to make it some kind of rivalry? I think NBC is going to regret this, too. Who wouldn’t watch a premiere of a Brit Brit show for the third episode of ANY other television program?
