There will be less Blake Shelton on television Monday night (Sept. 26), as NBC’s The Voice has been shortened to a one-hour episode. Dancing With the Stars will also be shrunk to a one-hour show, as all networks are set to air the first presidential debate.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will compete for voters after Jana Kramer competes with other dancers on the ABC reality competition (8PM ET). The singer earned a middle-of-the-pack score last week and wasn’t in danger of being eliminated. This week she and partner Gleb Savchenko will do the jive, competing in the first ever “Face-Off Night” which pits two couples against each other. Kramer will compete against Kenneth Babyface Edmonds and his partner.

On The Voice, Shelton and his fellow coaches will continue to choose their teams during the previously-recorded Audition Rounds. During last week’s season premiere, all four coaches went after former country star Billy Gilman, but the one-time child star chose Adam Levine over Shelton, Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus. Sundance Head is the country singer with the most potential thus far. He chose Team Blake.

Both reality programs will also air on Tuesday (Sept. 27) at 8PM ET. The other presidential debates will air on Oct. 9 and Oct. 19. A vice presidential debate will be televised on Oct. 4.
