Ratings: ‘The Voice’ Hits Lowest Performance Finale Ever

“Voice” still good enough to top night, hand NBC outright victory

Despite “The Voice” hitting an all-time performance finale low, NBC’s combination of singing competitions handed the network a comfortable Monday win.

NBC was first in ratings with a 3.0 rating/8 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and first in total viewers with an average of 11.1 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. earned a 3.3/9 and 12.7 million viewers.

At 9, “The Sing-Off” received a 2.2/6 and 7.8 million viewers. The rating is a large increase from Thursdays edition (1.3) that opened the night in the 8 o’clock hour. It’s a slight drop from last Monday’s premiere after “The Voice,” a more apples-to-apples comparison.
