Your move, NBC.
Asked whether or not The Voice would premiere its third season this fall — where it would have to compete with the noise of Fox's The X Factor -- producer and host Carson Daly said they're go for launch if NBC is.
"Well, we'd certainly be excited about the...

Our top moments of the week:
13. Biggest Buzzkill: When The Voice's Carson Daly asks Adam Levine for his opinion on Team Christina singer Jesse Campbell, Christina Aguilera is all too ready to come to her singer's defense and warns Adam not to criticize too harshly, saying, "Payback's a b----." Adam — who was only trying to compliment Jesse — is gobsmacked by Christina's reaction. Adding fuel to the fire, Christina calmly asks Jesse: "Aren't you glad that you have the only sober coach up here?" Irony!

Carson Daly issued an apology Wednesday after making what some deemed to be a homophobic joke on his Los Angeles radio morning show.
The current host of The Voice and ex-TRL emcee was discussing JetBlue pilot Clayton Osbon, who was charged with interfering with the crew after he had a breakdown on a recent flight out of New York. Several men on the flight — who happened to be on their way to a security industry conference in Las Vegas — had to wrestle the pilot to the cabin floor after he began screaming over the radio about religion and pounded aggressively on the locked door of the cockpit midflight.

Let's start this week's roundup by blowing some Valentine's kisses to ABC's Wednesday night lineup. No tongue, and not on the mouth, because that would be rude! But also very funny, as evidenced on the night's standout comedies The Middle and Modern Family, in which Sue Heck freaks when her wrestler boyfriend Matt gets "international" with his tongue-wrestling and Claire Dunphy is seriously skeeved out by Greg Kinnear (a hoot as Phil's wealthy new client) as he plants kisses right on her mouth, while shirking an oblivious Phil's hugs. Turns out he kisses ...
A year ago, no one, not even the powers that be at NBC, expected The Voice to pose a real threat to American Idol. Simon Cowell had taken his talents to The X Factor and between the two shows, Fox would out-yell and outspend any and all other music competitions.
But then The Voice and its big red swivel chairs and its panel of feisty, funny judges surprised everyone. Rather than repurposing the Idol formula, The Voice gave America a much-needed break from painful auditions, "dawgs," "songs that inspire" week, and judges critiques that ranged from "you really made it your own" to "that was beautiful, perfect." The show also beat X Factor to the punch in having judges act as mentors to the contestants, and in lining up a group of...
Madonna, Elton John, David Furnish
Looks like Elton John and Madonna's feud is still going.
After Madonna's "Masterpiece" from W.E., which she directed, beat out John's "Hello, Hello" from Gnomeo & Juliet for Best Original Song at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, John's husband, David Furnish, ripped the Material Girl on his Facebook page.

No one has come close to replicating the power and fortune amassed by legendary TV hosts Dick Clark, Merv Griffin and Oprah Winfrey — yet. But American Idol's Ryan Seacrest is on his way, and others are right behind.
Today's TV hosts aren't satisfied with just their day jobs. If you don't have multiple shows, a line of licensed merchandise and a production company, you're not trying hard enough. It's all about creating empires, and...
Laugh if you want, but Carson Daly may have started the social TV movement way back in 1998 with MTV's interactive call-in countdown show Total Request Live. Today, he hosts NBC's fiercely social singing competition The Voice. (In between, he has hosted NBC's late-late-night show Last Call with Carson Daly.) TRL and The Voice may feel miles apart on the music-show spectrum, but they've both contributed to the socialization of TV. We talked to Daly about his role in shaping TRL, adapting the Dutch formula for The Voice and the role of quality in social success...
Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton
All four celebrity mentors of NBC's The Voice will be back.
The show, which gave the network a badly needed ratings hit, is keeping Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Cee-Lo Green and Adam Levine as the "musician coaches" for Season 2, NBC announced Thursday.
