What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the NBC television network, The Voice TV show is a singing competition series that’s hosted by Carson Daly and airs twice weekly — typically on Monday and Tuesday nights. Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Blake Shelton return to coach in season 21 and are joined by Ariana Grande, a former guest performer. This season’s battle advisors are Jason Aldean (Team Kelly), Camila Cabello (Team Legend), Dierks Bentley (Team Blake), and Kristin Chenoweth (Team Ariana). Ed Sheeran serves as a “mega mentor”. The competition is divided into four stages: blind auditions, battle rounds, knockouts, and live performances. By the end of the blind auditions, 48 performers will have been chosen by the four coaches (12 for each team). They advance to the battles, knockouts, and live performances. In the end, only one will receive the $100,000 prize and a record deal with Universal Music Group.
Season 21 Ratings
The Monday episodes of the 21st season of The Voice averaged a 0.83 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.77 million viewers. Compared to the Monday episodes of season 19 (which aired Fall 2020), that’s down by 14% in the demo and down by 8% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM).
The Tuesday episodes of the 21st season of The Voice averaged a 0.81 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.88 million viewers. Compared to the Tuesday episodes of season 19 (which aired Fall 2020), that’s down by 17% in the demo and down by 6% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM).
While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled. Find out how The Voice stacks up against other NBC TV shows.
Will NBC cancel or renew The Voice for season 22? The ratings have dropped quite a bit over the years but this series remains the peacock network’s highest-rated unscripted series. During the 2021-22 television season, NBC will air just one cycle instead of the usual two (Fall and Spring), wanting to make it more of an annual event. I have no doubt that The Voice will be renewed and it will be interesting to see if this scheduling move will positively affect the ratings in the 2022-23 season.
