    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.

  2. Dav says:

    Oh X Factor…now you’re just embarrassing yourself.

  3. Alienate says:

    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.

  4. Jim Welker says:

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

  5. Meghan says:

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

  6. AmbleAlong says:

    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!

  7. It’s perfect time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be
    happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I want to suggest you few interesting things or tips.
