Are they all just the overnights - or have some got the timeshift added?

I expect a slight drop from now on.

Live shows are just live shows now, like with X Factor, but just more diverse songs.

At least the X Factor results show was live and not some pre-recorded rehash. The Voice's results show was particularly poor, I thought. Stuffed full of pointless VTs.

Oh yeah, I don't dispute that at all.

I was very bored of the results, it lacked tention and drama, something which the show needs... not getting rid of the best person in the first week, that'd be stupid, the results were correct, but it lacked.

9.33 is still brilliant for Saturday and the Results show ratings are as I expected them to be. I think they will always be lower than the live show, as they are in the US.

The Results show ratings might depend on how popular the guest singer is, otherwise people might just look in for the last 5-10 minutes to find out the result.

Reading some of the tabloids and some of the threads on here you would think the ratings had dropped by millions. The live show was only 0.76m less than the week before and still higher than the first two weeks as can be seen by the OP. The ratings aren't going to be exactly the same every week, even people who usually watch it may be out and record it some weeks.

The results show can't be expected to get the same ratings as the live show.

I know, seeing the figures does add some much needed perspective. The slight decline has been largely sensationalised.

Is this sarcasim?

The XF Results show is nothing but pointless VTs, recaps and performances from $yco's best to bump it up to a full hour.

Also this was the 1st ever Voice results show - its not as though the XF's first year was a spectacular success, was edited particularly well or with a winner or had any form of lingevity [in fact he was dropped before the 2nd series began].

Series 1 is basically a learning curve - look at the success of the XF from Series 1 to 2 and 3, this series is very much a pilot + I would expect next year things to be alot more polished and fluid

I think the live show will be in trouble if it falls below 9million this weekend. It will be very hard for it to claw its way back up and if this happens the Sunday results show could go lower. The negative press and reviews could cause this to happen.

The results show must have because I thought it got 8.6 in the overnights

And on the other hand the small decrease last week might have just been a blip and it may increase this week, also people may prefer Jessie and Danny's teams so more will watch, and the Sunday results show might be higher because Emili Sande is on.

Anything can happen, but I don't share your pessimism.

Saturday's ratings will be very interesting, I can see it going either way because the teams are much more appealing which will draw people but the 1st live show wasnt great which may turn people off.

Whatever happens I think this weekend is the BBCs best shot to get the ratings on the rise again (or at least steady them) by improving the show.

as long as the fa cup fina doesn't go into extra time I think itll rate well, as long as they have learned from the mistakes from the first live show. however i felt live show 1 was fantastic anyway, it was only the results show that was poor

heres ratings after time shift etc (from wiki):

Blind Auditions 1 9.44 (Weekly Rank #3)
Blind Auditions 2 9.93 (#1)
Blind Auditions 3 10.71 (#1)
Blind Auditions 4 11.99 (#1)
Battle Round 1 11.24 (#1)
Battle Round 2 10.98 (#2)

The ratings for tonight should be up as the teams are more interesting and I would think have more fans, however I'm still worried about whether the cup final on ITV will affect the ratings.

Also, the following week when The Voice has had to be pushed back to 6.10 to avoid a clash with BGT, it won't be in a peak time slot so that might have an effect.

Although I'm not bothered about ratings and I don't think it matters if they are up and down, unfortunately the newspapers and prophets of doom on DS will be out in force if the ratings are slightly down.

Just read on Tellymix that ratings still going down for The Voice:

More bad news for The Voice UK bosses this morning, as another million viewers tuned out of the show.

The latest overnight ratings reveal that last night’s show averaged 8.2 million, down over a million on last week’s opener which attracted 9.3 million.

The second live episode, which saw Team Danny and Team Jessie’s acts perform, was watched by 9.1 million, well down on last week’s 10.3 million peak.

The Voice UK results show, pre-recorded last night, airs this evening on BBC One at 7:15PM.

Rival Britain’s Got Talent strengthened its lead over the Beeb series, with 9.5 million viewers tuning on average, rising to 9.8 million including those watching on ITV1+1.

It’s 500,000 viewers down on last year’s final audition episode, however that aired on a Sunday between 7:30PM and 9PM.

The BGT live shows begin tonight from 8PM on ITV1.
I dont understand why so many people have turned off in 3 weeks. I'll be the first one to say that the live shows haven't been as great as the auditions but I still think theyre watchable and yesterdays show was better than last weeks! The coaches looked more comfortable, contestants were much better, better song choices and production values were improved. 8.2 million is still big but I dont get why some people are not giving this show more of a chance?

im giving it one more week if its as bad as last night thats it.
main problem for me is the song choices as I said last night in the show thread at this rate
Vera Lynn could be a judge next year and be more than at home the songs are so dated.

I do think it lost its way after the blind auditions. They were something new and wow for me, and now it's descended to the level of X Factor but without the sing-off.

I do think they need to do something with the results show; a) show it live on Saturday night and b) bring in a sing-off rather than just fizzle out at the end.

I watched it again last night, but found it very dull. Now the blind auditions are over, there isn't anything different about the show. I wont bother turning into the results tonight as I really don't care who leaves.

We will need to see the 5 minute breakdown of the figures to get the full picture but I would guess a fair part of the drop in the average was due to the football.

The match finished just a few minutes before the voice started and I would think a lot of people would have stayed with it to see the presentation before switching over to TV so the start of TV would have been low

If the match had gone to extra time it would almost certainly have been a disaster for TV though

I think it suffered because the first live show was so bad compared with last night's show. It was hard to believe after all the talent we saw in the blind auditions that those people performed so badly. Jessie J and Danny have by far the better teams and overall the more talented performers. Once BGT is finished next week, I hope viewers will return.

I thought last night's show was pretty good. There were some strong performances. But then I've always been easily pleased.
