The Voice Ratings Take a Tumble in New Time Slot

A pretty big slide for The Voice compared to previous Tuesday outings could be attributed to the Democratic debate on CNN and Baseball playoffs on TBS–all network numbers were down. However, the 2.5 rating is only 3/10s higher than last week’s clip show. The last Tuesday first run show, Battle Rounds #4, on September 29, earned a 3.7. The move to 9 pm from 8 pm may not be doing The Voice any favors.
