The Voice Ratings Steady – Judging Panels Done Right

The Voice Ratings

With reality competition shows like The Voice, it seems like the judging panel, or um… coaches, can be as big a factor for the viewers as the competitors.  If not MORE of a factor.  Just look at how American Idol has languished with big shake up this season.  The Voice, on the other hand, replaced two of its most popular judges, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, with newcomers Shakira and Usher,and came out on top.  So far,  The Voice has maintained ratings steadiness since its premiere with the new panel, while American Idol’s caustic combo continues to wither on the vine.

Note:  Cee Lo and Christina will be back in future seasons of The Voice, they are just taking a break.

The Voice came in #2 for the night on Monday with around 13Million live viewers and a 4.9 rating in the 18-49 year old television viewer demo.  Big time NCAA action was taking most of the oxygen out of the prime-time space otherwise The Voice would have easily come in number one.

Elsewhere, Voice did little to help Revolution fend off the b-ball action, but NBC’s post apocalyptic fantasy is still holding its own.  Dancing With the Stars was the other major live viewer winner outside of NCAA coverage bringing in roughly 13M viewers, but landed #8 in demographic rankings.
