The Voice‘s latest coronation ceremony was witnessed by 14 million total viewers, while scoring a 4.0 demo rating (per finals) — down 10 percent on both counts from the NBC hit’s June finale but within spitting distance of its year-ago audience.
All told, the singing competition‘s previous finales shook out as follows:
Season 1 (June 2011): 11.1 mil/3.7
Season 2 (May 2012): 11.9 mil/4.4
Season 3 (December 2012): 14.1 mil/4.9
Season 4 (June 2013): 15.6 mil/4.4
Opening the Peacock’s night, The Biggest Loser (7 mil/2.0) saw gains of 12 percent and a tenth.
Over on CBS, NCIS (19.7/2.9) commanded the night’s largest audience while steady in the demo (tying its season low), NCIS: LA (15.6 mil/2.4) was steady and Person of Interest (12.4 mil/2.0) added some eyeballs yet slipped two tenths in the demo opposite all of the Voice hullabaloo.
