The Voice ratings for Monday’s Semi Final Top 9 performance episode dipped 1/10 of a point from last Monday’s 1.0 to this week’s 0.9. The first hour garnered a 1.0 rating, but fell in the second hour to a 0.9. The Voice attracted 7.2 million overall viewers compared to last Monday’s 7.3. 

Songland rose 1/1oth compared to last week, from a 0.6/3.8 million viewers to 0.7/3.7 million viewers. The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart stayed steady at 0.6/2.9 million viewers.

FOX drama 9-1-1 won the night handily with a 1.3 rating and 7.1 million viewers. The Voice tied with The Price is Right on CBS (0.9 and 6 million viewers)

American Idol actually beat The Voice ratings this week (but not overall viewers), but that’s not saying much. Both shows lost considerable audience after hiatuses forced by coronavirus production shutdowns. Are audiences just not into at-home singing show episodes? Or did the show’s hiatuses kill The Voice and American Idol ratings momentum? It’s worth noting that The Voice regularly scheduled clip show breaks in the past that didn’t affect subsequent ratings.

Will next week’s finales garner extra interest from viewers?
