The final ratings are in for Monday March 15. The Voice ratings stayed steady this week against The Bachelor finale ratings.

The Voice garnered a 1.1 in the key 18-49 demo, with 7.8 million overall viewers for NBC. Last Monday, The Voice earned a 1.0 rating in the key demo, and 7.6 million overall viewers.

Meanwhile, over on ABC, The Bachelor finale, in which Matt James chose a partner amid intense controversy, earned a 1.5 rating in the key demo, and 6.0 million overall viewers. Last week, the series earned a 1.2 rating in the key demo while nabbing 5 million overall viewers. The Bachelor: After the Final Rose special at 10 pm earned 1.4 in the key demo and 5.6 million viewers.

The Bachelor had the night’s highest ratings in the key 18-49 ratings, while The Voice had the most overall viewers.

Notably for The Bachelor, finale ratings were down sharply compared to last year’s finale, which earned a 2.2 rating in the key demo and 7.7 million viewers. It’s probably a series low for a The Bachelor finale.
