Episode two didn’t bring any good news for this reality show. It was down by 11% in the demo with a 1.7 rating and 4.45 million viewers. It was in fourth place for the timeslot. NBC execs are surely very grateful they didn’t program this series twice a week like other singing competitions.

Episode 03-01: Monday, 9/19/11
This reality series has enjoyed limited success as a limited run show and has always aired in December. NBC took a chance by running season three in September, hoping to hold the timeslot until The Voice returns in mid-season. It didn’t pay off. It premiered to a 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic with just 5.3 million viewers. Compared to the second season’s premiere, Sing-Off was down by 32% in the demo and 38% in viewership.


Reference point: The 2010-11 season averaged a 2.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 8.56 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. 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.

What do you think? Do you like The Sing-Off TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season?

there is hardly a tv program that brings quality , that is genuine, that is for the family to enjoy. It is a gem of a show and i hope NBC will not dissapoint their viewers.

Love this show. I have family across the country and we all manage to sit down on Monday nights to watch this. I devoured the first two seasons and this was really the best IMHO. NBC this is the only quality “reality show” out there. Truly talented kids and judges who actually work in the industry (what and idea!). The addition of Sara was awesome (instead of Nicole, blech). And I really like that the judges make the decisions on who goes and stays until the finale, since it means the top three are more likely to be the most talented instead of the most popular. I used to watch DWTS since there was really nothing else on Mondays I was interested in and I haven’t turned it on at all this season. NBC you’d be crazy to cancel this little gem.

I hope NBC doesn’t cancel this show. I love watching it and so does a lot of my friends. Specially this year, they have very talented groups. Maybe they should change it to a different day?

Come on, this show needs to go. The ratings are just terrible. And for it to take up TWO hours on a Monday? I say move it to Saturday if they feel the need to keep it..

The sing-off is better in every respect than any other singing show. However, as usual the execs made the idiotic mistake of putting it in a time slot that is very unfavorable to it’s survival.

The sing off is by far the best competitive singing shown the air. It’s the only show that EVERY contestant legitimently has talent. I have seen some near musical geniuses on the past few seasons. Not to mention the fact that the judges actually know a thing or two about music as well. In fact, a lot of the other shows judge panels are a complete joke. I agree with some ofthe others here…the show is still yet young, and it’s put up against a megashow that’s been on air for years and has gained a lot of loyalty. I guarantee you that many of DWTS viewers would tune in to the sing off if it was on an off night. Bring on a fourth season

Stop with all of the singing reality shows. Just play Rock Band or something.

I hope NBC doesn’t cancel SING OFF! Can’t be expensive to produce since the execs don’t have to pay a band to back the singers! The talent of these a capella singers radiates off the screen.

Any high quality show is in jeopardy nowadays. The public is primarily interested in mindless inbecility.

Sing-Off is the one show around which my entire family schedules our week. We love the feel-good spirit and the fact that the judges are optimistic and constructive in their criticism. As a result of the show, we’ve downloaded many of the songs from iTunes and purchased previous CDs from some of the featured groups that the competition brought to our attention. We really hope NBC will bring this show back for a fourth season!!!

Show is good. Too many commercials. could be shortened by a half hour easily.

The Sing Off is THE best singing competition on tv. The talent in these groups in amazing!

My family can’t get enough of the sing-off. We love the amount of skill and talent shown on the show — we believe it showcases a level of musicianship that no other show can touch! Please, NBC, keep it on the air!

It’s one of the best shows on TV. If NBC were to promote it more, it would surely catch on. ABC’s Dancing with the Stars trailed American Idol in the ratings in the early years but eventually roared ahead of them.

The numbers this year have been a bummer. I hope at some point we start to see ratings reminiscent of last season. It’s too good of a show not to be popular.

I think it is the best singing competition show on television and should definitely be renewed. Let’s face it, being slotted between DWTS and 2.5 Men with a new star is not an enviable slot. Tuesday or Wednesday would have been much better. DWTS took a few years to get popular and 2.5 Men I think will fade by season’s end. Does anyone think another show is going to do better. Give it a chance to build a following.

I will be so sad if they cancel this show. I think it needs more advertising. I stumbled upon it last season and have shared it with everyone I know for this season. I love the artistry!
