Yes! Maybe 2012 will be NBC's year!

Lat night was a WIN for the Peacock network between the return of The Voice and the premiere of SMASH. Taking it's place at its regular time slot, The Voice averaged a demo rating of 6.6, and impressively swelled every half hour, starting at a 5.3 and ending at 7.7.

As for the newbie, SMASH started off solidly with a 4.2 demo rating, then slipped to a 3.4 come its second half-hour averaging out to a 3.8. We imagine that number will go up next week, since a lot of people watched the show online before its premiere. Next week, the HAVE to tune in to see what Anjelica Huston will do next! (Have we mentioned we adore her?!)

Did U tune in for the NBC lineup last night? What did U think?

    I love The Voice. All of those judges make the show what it is. If any were to leave( except Ceelo) I wouldn't watch. A little disillusioned though, I don't like that there are so many professionals and ppl that have ties to the buisness or have had non successful music out already, being the contestants. Idol is much better in this case, where they showcase and get ppl that come from nothing, or no ties.
    SMASH, is just ok. I see it slipping weekly and soon to be canceled.With all the hype I thought it would be better. I don't like Debra Messing. She is Grace, all over again . Her acting and facial expressions are so annoying. Katherine McPhie is good and I hate her. lol. I love that they hired a thick, slightly overweight actress. That is nice to see some variety on TV. Hope she doesn't lose weight.

    The Voice is a great show. In my opinion it is far superior to the bloated XFactor. I haven't seen Smash yet, but it is on my DVR.

    Love the Voice. Blake Shelton and Adam are both very good. The whole team is.

    Lindsey Pavao was by far the best and is going to win it all! Her song on iTunes is already the #25 song! Fun fact not only does she somewhat look like Dev but they graduated high school together.

    I wish Xtina would get a makeunder. She needs to get rid of those white extentions, red red lipstick and all that eye makeup . Her voice is great but damn if she doesn't always look like a hooker. Her boobs popping out at Etta James funeral was just so disrespectful.

    Smash was a GREAT show! Loved it. Totally worth of all the hype!
    Can´t wait to see what happens next week!
    BTw for me the standouts are Jack Davenport and Kat Mcphee. What a sizzling chemistry they have!
