New seasons are on the rise, and no, I’m not just talking about the weather. This week television will entertain audiences with premieres of favorites, new and old.
First on the guide, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will welcome their rivals back to the panel of judges for “The Voice,” the sixth season for the reality singing competition. Shakira and Usher are returning for their second season of judging.
Like any other television talent contest, “The Voice” holds auditions. However, unlike “American Idol” or “The X-Factor,” the judges of “The Voice” don’t see the contestants before they decide whether or not they have what it takes vocally to advance in the competition. The singer, then, decides which coach he or she wants as a mentor.
“The Voice” premiered at 7 p.m. last night on NBC with auditions, giving viewers a taste of what the teams will look like for the season. Auditions will continue at the same time tonight.
If you’re into dramatics, watch the first few weeks of the series as the coaches duke it out during this critical time as they compete to coach the most talented contestants.
Speaking of dramatics, Thursday night is one that “Grey’s Anatomy” fanatics have been waiting on for quite some time. The midseason premiere of “Grey’s” premieres at 8 p.m. and will finally clear up questions that left followers hanging from a cliff for months.
Will Bailey get over her OCD? Will Shane step off the crazy train? Will Arizona and Callie mend their relationship? Why did the President call Derek? Does Karev really want to settle down? And, most importantly, will April walk out of her wedding for another man?
Drama, Drama, Drama, and it doesn’t stop there. Immediately following “Grey’s Anatomy” is the third midseason premiere of “Scandal,” starring Kerry Washington.
The plot of the series is all in the name, scandal, and the end of this season is predicted to be the most scandalous yet.
As Fitz continues his re-election campaign, it should be no surprise that new thrills are to be making their way into the season.
Good thing this isn’t an accurate representation of our current government — knock on wood — or we would be in a bit of a conundrum that we wouldn’t find as amusing as we do on television.
Whether you’re a fan of reality competitions, drama or thriller series, this week is expected to be entertaining for viewers. So sit back, grab some popcorn and enjoy the shows.
