The Voice fans slam ‘absurd’ and ‘dumb’ schedule change and claim they just ‘want to watch the performances’

THE Voice fans have taken issue with a new prominent schedule change for the reality singing competition.

Annoyed The Voice viewers headed to the show’s community on Reddit after finding out the knockout segment had been moved to the following week.

“Why are they waiting till next week to show the knockouts and not tonight?” asked the curious Redditor.

They were immediately met with answers, most of which were negative about the show.

“So dumb. This show is like 50% filler & reruns when the people just want to see all the performances,” one wrote.

“So tonight is basically a rerun?” another annoyed fan asked.

“But why that seems very absurd,” the original poster replied.

Other members of the Reddit community fielded guesses as to why the schedule change had happened.

“My guess is that it’s because of Easter Monday, but I could be wrong,” one suggested.

“Maybe because the NCAA tournament? Two big women’s games were on, so they might lose viewership,” wrote another.

SCHEDULE SHAKEUP
The Voice has received additional backlash as of late since moving to Monday and Tuesday nights.

The show, which is currently airing its 25th season, made the change and got under fans’ skin with it.

The latest change meant viewers wouldn’t be able to watch The Voice until April 2.

Reruns of the sitcom Lopez vs. Lopez began airing instead as well as game show The Weakest Link.

That meant Monday’s episode, which fans had aired their issues about on Reddit, was a recap.

FRUSTRATED FANS
Though schedule changes like these are common with The Voice and even shows like American Idol, it still attracted the ire of fans.

This frustration led to fans complaining about the change online once more, going so far as to say the quality was declining.

“I think part of the reason the show has gone downhill recently is cause of NBC. They give us two seasons a year but one is always super short and makes for a bad season cuz they rush it to make space for AGT (which I personally think is falling off too),” they explained, referencing the network’s other popular competition series, America’s Got Talent,” one viewer wrote.

“The year when we only got season 22 was so much better because the format gave the artists more opportunities to perform and there weren’t a ton of people going home each round,” they continued.

After making their point, other fans chimed in as well.

“Idk about y’all but I feel like the show genuinely fell off long ago,” another commented.

“We have had two seasons a year for most of the shows run (2012-2021). The only seasons where had one season in a year was Season 1 and Season 22.

“I just think some of these shows stay on longer than they need to be,” a third noted.

“I think it’s just a new scheduling issue because we didn’t have shortened seasons like this in the past,” one person said about the schedule change.

“I’ve always said that they should get rid of the instant save, the block & the playoff pass (and maybe replace the Knockouts with more live shows) since they make the show less about the performers,” a fourth suggested.
