NBC sets a December return for 'The Sing-Off'
If you love a cappella, set your calendar for Monday, December 9.
NBC announced this week that a new season of "The Sing-Off" will premiere that night from 9-11 p.m. The season is set for seven episodes (or, rather, hours), with the two-hour finale airing on Monday, December 23.
"The Sing-Off" aired in December 2009 as a winter event and filled the same capacity in 2010. NBC moved it to fall as a weekly series in 2011, where it fizzled.
Nick Lachey will return as host, with Jewel joining Ben Folds and Shawn Stockman on the judging panel.
