No prizes for guessing that Nine won the week, thanks to State of Origin, The Voice and the Ashes.

It was Nine’s best performance of the year, including a whopping 46.7% share on Wednesday.

GEM also scored a 7.7% share for Nine. But it was only the second week Nine has won from Seven at the mid-point of the year.

  1. The Voice should be renamed, “It’s all about the Judges”. Does anyone ever see these contestants doing anything of worth after The Voice ends every season? A couple of episodes ago I timed a couple of contestants’ screen time and compared that to the judges. The focus is on the judges by more than three to one. When will people learn that this show is not actually about them? They are only fodder for the flock of sheep who watch.

      I can’t honestly see any of these contestants doing anything great in the music industry after this series ends. No-one from any of the past series of the Voice has clearly gone on have any success what-so-ever. Its become all about the judges as Channel Nine have figured contestants have very little pulling power on or after the show. When they do focus on the contestants its about some sad backstory not their actual singing.
