NBC Tuesday Shakeup: The Village and The Voice on the Move!

at .

NBC is changing things up on Tuesday nights.

The Peacock network has confirmed that The Voice and The Village are on the move!

Starting April 23, The Village is shifting to the 8 p.m. slot, marking the second time the series has changed timeslots since premiering in late March. 

A New Resident - The Village Season 1 Episode 1

The show has not been holding up well in the ratings, premiering with a mere 0.8 rating out of the network's number one scripted series, This Is Us.

The show moved to the 9 p.m. slot when This Is Us Season 3 came to a close, making way for New Amsterdam's return.

However, The Village logged just 3.8 million total viewers and a 0.6 rating on Tuesday. New Amsterdam struggled with the lack of lead-in support, dropping to 4.5 million viewers and a 0.6 rating.

New Amsterdam is already renewed for next season, so the network likely wants to protect the ratings and has a plan to do so.

The Voice is moving to The Village's current slot. The singing competition has also been slipping in recent weeks.

NBC notes that The Village is more time-shifted than The Voice and with HUT levels down at 8 p.m., many viewers will watch the show on a delayed basis.

The Village is currently averaging 6.6 million total viewers and a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 in Live plus 7 ratings.

These are not good figures, and it's likely that The Village will be closing for good in the coming weeks.

The change will affect the schedule for five weeks. After that, America's Got Talent will air between 8-10 p.m. on the night, while Songland will air from 10-11 p.m.
