Today NBC revealed their Fall 2012 schedule, and one of the biggest surprises is that The Voice is indeed coming back in the Fall!

Typically talent shows stay in one season, but The Voice’s strong success for NBC has pushed the network to run a third season early to help out their other Fall programming.

The complete list follows below, thanks to EW.

Also of note is that Smash will not be returning in the Fall – it will instead make its debut midseason (likely Winter/Spring).

    Is this good news or bad news for Community?

      Bad news. Friday night is bad ratings-wise. Community and Whitney both have the death spot.

      • LilyLuna

        Yeah Fridays are cursed.:/ Which is unfortunate because I actually thought Whitney was pretty good.

        • http://twitter.com/LiamFloyd Liam Floyd

          I love Whitney. I think it’s hilarious so this news upsets me too.

             Wow.  I couldn’t watch more than 5 minutes of that show without turning it off.  I’m surprised it got renewed.

        if fridays are the death spot, how did grimm get renewed?!?

        • http://twitter.com/LiamFloyd Liam Floyd

          It’s not an automatic “this show is on Friday so we’re cancelling it”, it’s just more likely than if the show was on any other day. SOMETHING has to be on Friday.

    • Shelby

      Community is getting one more final season and then that’s it. So, it being on Fridays kind of means the show is heading for its death. That’s what happened with Chuck.

      • http://twitter.com/LiamFloyd Liam Floyd

        The rumors of this being Community’s final season are not true. Making the show air on Friday certainly isn’t going to help them, though…

       Having it on a Friday leading into Grimm (which does well ratings-wise) makes sense somewhat. Having it paired with Whitney, however, makes absolutely no sense. Completely different audiences. My guess is they’re sending Whitney there to die and hoping Community’s loyal audience will stay with it.

      I’m more worried about Dan Harmon potentially leaving, to be honest.

  • Steven R

    Community on a friday. suppose it’s better than nothing.  how does this compare to this seasons schedule.

  • http://twitter.com/purplehrdwonder Caitlin Kelly

    Damn, Revolution is on at the same time as Castle and Hawaii Five-0, which take precedence.

    Dislike that Grimm is still in the Supernatural/Fringe timeslot, too.

  • Cwgrlwa

    That is why i watch all my shows on Hulu.com. So i dont have to figure out which show i want watch and what channel.


  • Kate

    Well, at least I’ll now have something to watch on Fridays (Community). It won’t fight for my attention with TVD on Thursdays.

    • Kelly Barker

       Oh my gosh, same here!!

  • Blair Warren

    Hmm… so I guess it will be The Voice vs The X Factor?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/D7OUZO7JNNWU2NQ35FYMYOUS6I GarrettP

    Excited that The Voice will be coming back on so soon but I hope it doesn’t take away from The Sing Off’s viewership because that show is incredible and deserves to be the most popular talent show.

      I thought The Sing Off was cancelled.

    So Smash is midseason? Innnnnteresting.

    • KristenKranz

      Yeah… I’m not happy about this though. I was really hoping for a full 22 ep or so season next year. Oh well, at least we are definitely getting more Smash!

    NBC continues to be the worst. In other news, water is wet.
