Of course, with The Voice consistently beating DWTS in the ratings, we have a feeling the NBC Powers That Be aren't regretting their decision at all.
On the other hand, The Voice doesn't beat DWTS by much, so Bruno might have a point that if the shows weren't going head-to-head, they could both benefit. But with American Idol also in the mix, the TV landscape isn't exactly rife with room for multi-day, mutli-hour reality competition shows.
