One of my favorite new shows will be making a comeback next season. The Voice singing competition. is reporting:

NBC announced its 2011-2012 primetime lineup on Sunday, and it’s good news for ‘The Voice.’ The hit singing competition will be back for a second run, coming in as a mid-season show on Mondays. Following ‘The Voice’ will be ‘Smash,’ a new musical drama starring ‘American Idol’ runner-up Katherine McPhee.

‘The Voice,’ which has garnered impressive ratings over its first few airings, will return for another season on Mondays from 8-10PM for the second half of NBC’s 2011-12 schedule. There’s no word yet on whether any or all of the current celebrity coaches — Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton — will return, as well.

“With a powerful new asset like ‘The Voice’ already in hand, we go into the 2011-12 season with cautious but incredible optimism,” says NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt in a press release.

Following ‘The Voice’ on Mondays at 10PM ET will be the new musical drama ‘Smash,’ starring Katharine McPhee. The ‘American Idol’ runner-up will play Karen, a young theater performer who is vying for a lead role on a Broadway show with stage veteran Ivy Bell.
