BBC SEEKING REPLACEMENT FOR THE VOICE

Written by James Cheetham on 8th April 2016

BBC'S The Voice comes to an end this weekend, leaving a prime time void which acting entertainment chief Alan Tyler has described as 'a big opportunity.' 

The BBC has had several Saturday night flops recently, including celebrity gymnastics show 'Tumble' and the gameshow 'Prized Apart', and the company is currently looking towards the US for inspiration to guide their next choice.

Tyler suggested that comedy series in the UK tend to follow established formulae such as interviews and panel shows, and that perhaps they 'are missing something more akin to the thing that Fallon and James Cordon have done', referring to the show 'Carpool Karaoke' which has become a major hit in the US.

Clearly the beeb are open to taking a different approach to their next generation of Saturday night entertainment and with shows such as Britain's Got Talent entering its tenth series, perhaps a fresh approach is what's needed.
