The Voice TV series which has millions of pounds spent on it, endless tabloid hype and a prime time TV slot has had to cancel the tour by the no mark singers on the show that everyone has forgotten already.
Poor ticket sales (dismal actually far arena shows and far less than middling punk band can get on the circuit with none of the hype) meant the tour had to be pulled which comes weeks after the winner's songs flailed to make the top 40.
The series has been beset with problems with bad viewing figures and a gradual slump in interest in the show.
Is this another sign that people are getting bored of the formulae?
We don't begrudge these programmes we just wish there was more TV space for everyone else out there- after all not everyone can cram onto Jools Holland's Later can they?
