  • The Sing-Off, which was brought back this season after being cancelled due to low ratings on a last place network, actually beat the X Factor in total viewers…that’s gotta sting for Simon Cowell who thinks the X Factor will be coming back next year.

  • The Sing-Off continues to be the most under appreciated singing show on TV. Last nite was 2 hours of smiles and warm fuzzies watching TSO, and 2 hours of cringing and gagging watching XF.

  • That Mike Buble is an overrated bum! He stinks! What a brainwashing farce he is! He stank on his X Factor appearances!

    • He stank on his Idol appearances too. A complete douche.

  • The Sing-Off is the happiest competition show on television. Seriously, watch it and try not to smile. It’s impossible.

    • This! Just watching all of them work with each other in the Ultimate Sing-Off was amazing! The teams all collaborated so well!!! Ben Folds is absolutely HILARIOUS too.

    • I agree completely! I love The Sing-off and think it is a perfect holiday addition to the NBC lineup. I don’t want it on so often that it gets old, but I love what they have done this year with only 10 teams and seven total episodes. Please give us more!
