The Voice returned to Nine last night with its Blind Auditions filmed pre-lockdown.
It drew 1.01m metro viewers which is exactly the same as 2019’s launch (which in the current age is something you’d be very happy with). Given it’s below Lego‘s launch of 1.24m it may not enjoy quite the same consistency as the Hamish Blake vehicle.
It also didn’t win the demos. That went to MasterChef Australia which was close behind at 932,000 from 7:30pm -a battle to watch as the cooking show heats up. House Rules (674,000) and Maralinga Tjarutja (449,000 from 7:40pm) followed.
Later 60 Minutes was 698,000, down on the preceding week, then the final Mystery Road (583,000), and Seven movie: Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (319,000) and FBI: Most Wanted (313,000).
Nine network won Sunday with 31.2% then Seven 25.3%, 10 19.7%, ABC 15.0% and SBS 8.8%.
Seven News was #1 at 1.18m for Seven.
Nine News drew 1.13m and a late edition was 431,000.
The Sunday Project was 521,000 / 336,000 for 10. 10 News First was 357,000.
ABC News drew 774,000. Compass (211,000) and Killing Eve (193,000) followed for ABC.
On SBS it was London: 2,000 Years Of History (282,000), SBS World News (216,000) and The Clinton Affair (155,000).
Bluey led multichannels again at 198,000.
