The blind auditions continued on The Voice season 4 two night première and 17 chefs were competing on Hell’s Kitchen Tuesday night.
You would think that I, Ava Zinn, could watch both programmes at the same time (via online streaming). Expectations were high, only to find out the stream to watch Hell’s Kitchen wasn’t working, but The Voice was and likely surprised, disappointed and in some cases, downright angry, when I had tried to view the West Coast Hell’s Kitchen feed, but that too, was plagued with problems and did not see the Hell’s Kitchen programme until 12Midnight, because I decided to watch The Voice.
When I learned in February that the Hell’s Kitchen would air on Fox Tuesday 8 to 9 p.m., and just after Cassadee Pope won season 3 of The Voice, season 4 would air on NBC Tuesday from 8 to 9 p.m., I knew I had a problem — a scheduling conflict.
Watching the fourth new episode of Hell’s Kitchen would mean forgoing the second night of the season four two-night première and postponing The Voice Updates on Vote for the Girls on a week when a historic Vote for the Girls victory is lurking. Going with The Voice would mean postponing Hell’s Kitchen by a day. I decided at 7 p.m. Tuesday to go with both and see if it would work, bypassing broadcast of Hell’s Kitchen, earning the ire of Hell’s Kitchen fans.
It was a damned if you do, damned if you don’t situation. What people need to realize is that I have certain obligations when I launched Vote for the Girls in 2010, and of course I wanted to watch The Voice show as well as local news. I did learn (based on a similar ruling) that I could not re-air Hell’s Kitchen, insisting it be watched live (when it airs). “Hell’s Kitchen people are angry (but) if I hadn’t done this, the Vote for the Girls people would have been angry,” I added, who couldn’t say how many angry phone calls and tweets I had gotten. “Turns out, Hell’s Kitchen fans are quite vocal.”
