The Voice continued its domination of television last night, with over 900,000 more viewers than anything else in sight.
The second battle-round show pulled 2.26m viewers when it aired from 8pm-10pm (it ran overtime so the numbers will be adjusted slightly). That again bolstered Nine’s share for the night at 37.9% to Seven 27.1% and TEN on 16.0%.
There were more dramatic sing-offs, crushing decisions and stunning duets. But some performances such as Firework underwhelmed while Purple Rain was a sheer trainwreck. The show also dominated Twitter while it was on air with plenty of division over some of the judges’ choices.
The Block was second best for Nine on 1.26m viewers then Nine News (1.18m), ACA (1.04m), and 2 Broke Girls (848,000).
Seven News (1.33m) topped Seven’s night then Today Tonight (1.16m), Packed to the Rafters (1.11m), Australia’s Got Talent (1.07m), Home and Away (909,000) and Missing (691,000 /566,000).
The Biggest Loser (758,000) was TEN’s best performer. TEN News was (742,000), NCIS was 538,000 / 378,000 / 332,000 and The Project 6pm (441,000).
ABC News (940,000) was again ABC1’s top show then 7:30 (639,000), the final Country Town Rescue (539,000), and Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple (529,000).
The series finale of Who Do You Think You Are? was 374,000. Insight was 193,000 and Dateline was 128,000.
Neighbours led multichannels with 253,000.
