The Voice ratings ticked up 1/10th from last week’s 1.1 to 1.2 in the key 18-49 key demo. It will end up tying with American Idol this week, once Sunday’s final ratings are released. This week’s probable tie will break a two week ratings winning streak for American Idol.

However, NBC’s The Voice ratings were bested by both The Bachelorette’s premiere and FOX’s 9-1-1 season finale. Both shows earned a 1.3 rating, beating The Voice by 1/1oth of a point. 

The Bachelor premiere slipped 1/10th from last year’s 1.4 rating.

UPDATE: …..or not! The Voice adjusted DOWN 1/10th in the final Nielsen update. American Idol rose to a 1.2 in Sunday’s final update as expected. So, for the third week, American Idol ratings beat The Voice.
