The Sing-Off: NBC Contest Returning for Season Two

The Sing-OffDespite achieving mediocre ratings during the show’s first season, NBC has decided to give The Sing-Off another try.

A competition for a cappella groups, The Sing-Off ran as a four episode special event in December. It began with a 2.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.89 million viewers. The ratings dropped after that but then bumped back up to a 2.3 rating and a viewership high of 7.28 million viewers for the season finale.

Considering NBC’s current state, those numbers are good enough to bring the show back for another round. It surely doesn’t hurt that the series is relatively inexpensive to produce.

Viewers shouldn’t try to set their DVRs just yet though. NBC’s executive VP of alternative programming, Paul Telegdy, told TheWrap, “We’ll be bringing Sing-Off back. We don’t know when. But we believe we’ve found a little gem, one we can buff up and make better.”

What do you think? Are you glad to hear the show’s coming back? Is it better or worse than other reality competitions? Should it come back as a regular series or another special event?

UPDATE: It’s been confirmed that the show will return for the 2010-11 season with an eight episode competition.

I am soooo happy the sing off is coming back on. We hadn’t heard anything about the show having a second season and were very disappointed. I told so many people about it while it was on and after the season was over. I’ll continue to tell people now that I know it’s going to be aired again. Woo hoo!

We loved Sing-Off in our house last year and are looking forward to a Season 2!! I hope they keep the same judges. The episode where Nicole S. sang with the Beelzabobs was fantastic!

I really liked the first season, and with the popularity of Glee right now i think they would be smart to produce a new season of this amazing talent show, it sure is a good fresh change from american idol! :)
