So now we have 10 months to fill this thread with ideas for this primetime special.
I think it's interesting to have this special in the middle of the season. But since the season premiere and finale always have good ratings, it's a good idea for NBC to schedule it apart of those dates.
Also it's a good date since it's two weeks after the Superbowl on NBC and The Voice may have started before, so NBC has the chance to promote it massivly.
