    The moral of the story: when we get to know the contestants better, we tune in more.

    Too bad Simon hasn’t figured that out yet.

  • Sara M

    That is not a series high and I don’t know why it is being spun as such. Season 2 had like 6 episodes that got over a 6.

    It says season high, not series high in the TV by the Numbers article.

  • elliegrll

    It may be a series high for the finales, and a good sign.  The episodes from series two benefited from a post Super Bowl lift, but the ratings for the past two nights are about the series itself.

  • Sara M

    You were the person I saw who first posted it was a series high, so maybe you confused MJ, because you never corrected your wrong statement. A series high for the finale is very different from a series high. Also, those episodes from Season 2 were reaching a 6 regularly into March, and the fact that they lost those viewers says something about the show too.

  • mjsbigblog

    I misspoke. It is a SEASON high.  Nothing will probably beat the fake inflated numbers from the S2 post-superbowl showing.

  • Sara M

     It was not just the post superbowl showing that had higher numbers than last night though. The entire first 1/3rd of the second season did.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I’m sure that NBC and Mark Burnett are very happy with the show ending on such a high note.

    I thought the show was great – very well produced. And I feel the caliber of all 20 contestants really shone with the group numbers. I actually liked the mix between the duets it emphasizes the musicianship of the various contestants whether it be between contestants or with the guest star performers. The filler is actually pretty funny most of the time. I agree the interviewer in the sky box is a bit boring. Carson is awkward but he moves the show along nicely. And I really like the judges/mentors. So I think for now it deserves the ratings it is receiving for pure good entertainment.

    I don’t watch The Voice but do they tell people to buy up to ten copies of the same song.I thought itunes only counts i copy per itunes account.If really is disgusting to tell people to waste their money on 10 copies of the same song.

    I’m glad Vegas is doing well.I really like it.Great acting and it really captures the old Vegas.

    Those are pretty good numbers for The Voice during last half hour of the finale. 

    Does anyone know off the top of their head how many millions of viewers tuned in for Idol’s finale last season?

     Well, I personally dont think that’s why The Voice has done so well. We actually had the same amount of “contestant knowledge” at The Voice as compared to X Factor, but with a lot less drama. But I guess the real difference is the chemistry between the judges, which basically does not exist with Ego Simon and One-Sentence Spears.

    For the Idol S11 finale:
    Rating: 12.2
    Share: 20
    Viewers 18-49: 6.4/18
    Total viewers: 21.49 million
    Weekly rank: 1

    These numbers are substantially higher than for the top 2 competition episode the night before.

    “But I guess the real difference is the chemistry between the judges,
    which basically does not exist with Ego Simon and One-Sentence Spears.”

    I like the good natured ribbing between the Voice coaches and in general, their positive, constructive critiques of the contestants (even if they aren’t on their own team). It does appear that the Voice coaches have a lot more one-on-one mentoring of the contestants as well. I dislike the tone of the X-Factor and get a real mean-spirited vibe that surrounds the show. You’re right too about the lack of chemistry between the judges, and Simon would do the show a big favor if he left as a judge/mentor.

  • mjsbigblog

    The Voice coaches have great chemistry. I honestly think their success has less to do with how famous they are.  Competition reality show producers should get a clue. It would save them a lot on salaries.

    Idol sure isn’t dead yet, despite what some say.
