Regular national TV finance commentator and consumer advocate Effie Zahos has signed on as the Host of new business program, The Franchise Show, which will air Australia-wide on The Seven Network later this year. The weekly half-hour program will focus on the positives, the pitfalls and the personalities of franchising, profiling those at the forefront of Australia's booming small business sector. With more franchise systems per capita in Australia than anywhere else in the world, Zahos believes Australia has never been more ready to embrace The Franchise Show.

The Voice is an international reality television singing competition franchise. It is based on the reality singing competition The Voice of Holland, which was originally created by Dutch television producer John de Mol. Many other countries have adapted the format and begun airing their own versions since 2011. It has become a rival to the Idols franchise, Rising Star and The X Factor.

Originally, The Voice only allowed solo artists and groups with two members, not trios/quartets. The first case of a trio entering was in the first season of The Voice van Vlaanderen. In the second episode, the Vinken Sisters participated and three coaches turned. They commented that trios weren't allowed for participation and that there was a chance that the group had to drop a member. However, the trio remained in the competition without dropping members. Many versions of The Voice stuck with the original rule of only allowing solo artists and duos. The American version, the UK version and some other versions currently won't allow for trios/quartets to participate. However, the limit of two people per group was ultimately lifted in The Voice of Holland. In the fifth season of the Dutch version, girl group O'G3NE was the first trio that entered and ultimately won the show. After that, a few versions started to allow groups with more than two members. Trios/quartets have been seen entering the second season (3nty Brothers (trio)), the fifth season (Arcadian (trio)), the sixth season (The Sugazz and Incantessimú (trio)), and the seventh season, (JAT (trio)), all in The Voice: la plus belle voix, then the second season of The Voice Indonesia (Mervo (quartet)), the fifth season of Glasat na Bulgaria (Trinity (trio)), the eighth season of Holos Krainy (Nude Voices (trio) and Akord (quartet)), and the seventh season of Australian version (Homegrown (trio)). A different rule was applied in the blind auditions in the Philippine version of The Voice Teens, wherein if contestants auditioning as duo had received only one-chair turn, the coach who turned for them must decide either dropping a member or advancing both of them. The said rule was also seen in the Malaysian and Singaporean version of The Voice.
