    1. Snoopy why do you keep throwing in titles of old 70s and 80s shows? Nine does not play these at 7pm. Digital and Pay TV have nostalgia reruns. Clearly it will be Big Bang if it’s not The Voice, but Nine is continuing with The Voice. I think your joke about old reruns has been made many times now. So your point is made. Thanks.

  1. This sure beats the Australian version of The Voice. I would watch the Americans anytime. Better singers, better dressers, better manners and much better Judges. Cannot understand why this show is not rating. Looks like talent is not appreciated in this country yet again… and we lose a great show to digital….. 🙁
