The ratings and reviews are starting to pop up from last night’s season seven premiere of NBC’s The Voice. Though the ratings slightly dropped for the season’s start, critics and viewers are loving Gwen.
According to multiple sources, it seems that ratings for The Voice went down slightly down this season, taking in 12.7 million viewers and a 3.9 rating. Some are saying the 24% drop may be due to the decline in ratings across the board for singing competitions. Headline Planet says, “The Voice delivered a 3.9 adults 18-49 rating. Down from the 5.1 delivered for last fall’s season 5 premiere, the 3.9 is the series’ lowest premiere number to date. The episode’s viewership average of 12.7 million was not, however, the lowest ever drawn by a Voice premiere.”
TV By The Numbers also stated that last night’s premiere jumped 18% higher than season six’s finale and 9% in total viewers.
As far as Gwen’s performance, she is pretty much loved by everyone and is getting rave reviews!
