What’s Hot on TV Tonight – The Voice and The X Factor

I really hate to say this, as I've been a longtime American Idol fan and always defend it against all criticism. However, lately I've been enjoying The Voice and even Simon Cowell's The X Factor a little more. Idol is the Daddy of all these singing shows, but with the cast changes this upcoming season, The X Factor and The Voice just might leave it in the dust. Both these shows are on tonight, and I'm DVRing both. Check out your other favorite shows at TV-Links.
