The Israeli version of Rising Star is an incredibly popular singing competition. Will the US version be a ratings hit for ABC? Will it be renewed for a second season or will it be cancelled like so many others singing shows? Stay tuned.
Rising Star allows the home audience to vote for singers and help determine who will move on in the competition. Brad Paisley, Kesha, and Ludacris are the show’s “experts” while Josh Groban is the series’ host.

Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
