NBC pumps up ‘Voice’ star power

Peacock also skeds 'Love Bites' in June

NBC is adding star power to its promising new unscripted series “The Voice.”

Country singer Reba McEntire, R&B star Monica, pop siren Sia and music producer Adam Blackstone will join the series on May 10 as “advisers,” teaming up with the program’s current roster of coaches. They include Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton.

NBC also unveiled May airdates for “Voice,” which will have a two-hour edition on Tuesday, May 3, at 9 p.m. before moving to one-hour 10 p.m. editions for the rest of the month.

“Voice” had an impressive debut week, with strong premiere ratings Tuesday followed by impressive numbers in a Wednesday rebroadcast.

In addition, the network has scheduled fall-season holdover “Love Bites” for June 2, the network confirmed.

The hourlong comedy, from Universal Media Studios and Working Title TV, was originally slated to be part of the peacock’s primetime lineup in September.

But after announcing “Bites” would air Thursdays at 10 p.m. at its upfront presentation in May, NBC had a change of heart two months later, shelving it in favor of another season of “The Apprentice.” Cindy Chupack, the show’s creator, stepped down as showrunner at the time.

Now nine episodes of “Bites” is back in the Thursday 10 p.m. slot it was originally intended to get.

Another fall holdover, “The Paul Reiser Show,” didn’t fare too well, scoring anemic ratings in two episodes that aired earleir this month before being canceled.
