  1. Disappointed that this debacle on Sunrise seems to be working for Seven. Really wish people would just switch off. Maybe a few switched over to The Voice and that’s why their numbers were up. Bit disappointed with the overpromotion of the beat box guy on that too. Yes, he’s a bit different and he’s displayed a skill we haven’t seen before on the show. But imo it took away from some of the other outstanding acts on the show. That young girl who was first up has a phenomenal voice.

  2. After that over the top pointer to last night’s Voice at the end of last week’s ep and the promos you would want to see some good figures for The Voice. I wasn’t expecting it to get over a million though. It was well put together.

  3. The BachPara has a slight problem….some of the fairly quick coupling has caused it to run out of steam a little and also a few folk just quitting as there is no one they’re attracted to. If it was me I’d just hang around for the free holiday. Still while the producers would probably like a happy ending and the publicity that goes with it, the price they pay is reduced drama. No spoilers here, but if you want to know a bit more about any couple there is a fair bit in the media if you do a search. Some of it quite amusing

  4. So ‘the most controversial voice ever’ promotion got The Voice a rise in ratings…wonder what will happen now that’s done….. especially as someone is getting carted off to hospital on MKR tonight….gosh there must be a great story/tv show to be written out of all these promos !!!!

  5. Damn it. I loathe reality TV, and haven’t watched an Australian one properly since The Amazing Race Australia, but I was excited at the prospect of the Voice – which in my opinion is the worst of the bunch (come on Boy George, it’s self indulgent garbage) falling apart at the seams. But it seems that wont happen. Oh well..
