The Following will premiere 8:40pm Tuesday April 9th and has The Voice as a lead in. It will also screen at 8:40pm on Wednesday April 10.
As expected The Voice launches 6:30pm Sunday April 7 followed by the Logies at 8pm with half an hour of Red Carpet and the Awards at 8:30pm. This is exactly how things rolled last year so it is a dead cert to work again for Nine.7
The Voice also continues 7pm Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday April 8, 9 and 10 which will be an absolute headache for other networks. House Husbands was already confirmed for 8:40pm Monday April 9.
Nine is yet to reveal a start-date for The Great Australian Bakeoff, Arrow, Celebrity Apprentice and Underbelly: Squizzy.
The Nine Network will launch a massive week of television after Easter starting with season two of the ratings phenomenon The Voice, with new coach Ricky Martin, on Sunday, April 7.
After The Voice on Sunday night, Nine will present the star-studded 55th TV Week Logie Awards extravaganza from Crown Towers in Melbourne. The Red Carpet Arrivals begin at 8.00pm and the 2013 TV Week Logie Awards follow at 8.30pm.
Season two of Aussie drama favourite House Husbands goes to air the next night (Monday, April 8) before the premiere of The Following, the gripping new thriller starring Kevin Bacon, on Tuesday, April 9.
The Voice Season 2: Premieres Sunday, April 7, at 6.30pm and continues Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 7.00pm
After a record-breaking appearance on Channel Nine in 2012, The Voice is back for an electrifying second season. The Voice Australia is a show like no other. Superstar coaches – Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden, Grammy Award-winning soul singer Seal, Australia’s highest selling female artist of the decade Delta Goodrem, and worldwide Latin superstar and new coach Ricky Martin – are on a mission to discover Australia’s next great voice.
Returning as The Voice host is resident larrikin Darren McMullen, along with backstage host Faustina Agolley who will keep up with all the action and viewer feedback via social media.
Thousands of talented singers from around Australia have applied, but each coach must select only 14 for their team during the Blind Auditions, the first of four stages of competition. Then it’s on to the Battle phase, followed by the Showdowns, and finally the Live performance shows that will see Australia’s best undiscovered artist crowned winner of The Voice 2013.
