  2. Why do networks insist of flogging something til it dies. The VOICE Australia was a smash. Not only was the US version destined to fail so close to the end of the series, it will seriously damge the appeal of The VOICE Australia 2. Attention spans are shortening…..schedule decision makers are living in the past!!

  4. You should give a state by state figure.Nine consistently wins in Sydney and Melbourne with Today, 6pm News and other shows though nationally 7 seems to pick up numbers in the smaller markets.

  6. Will Nine never learn? all the websites seem to be saying the same thing-the result is known, they are capitalising on the Oz version which was appalling to say the least.Channel Nine wants to rush a second series before the years end.Please no! it wasnt that good-it was the concept that people were drawn to.Try something new!!

  8. Well bitter sweet for the cast and crew of Tricky Business who pulled in the same numbers and then have 9 axe the series, sending cast and crew to the unemployment line. Arh network television strikes again !!!

  14. I’m sure Nine weren’t expecting the same ratings as the Aus version but it’s a great format with pretty amazing talent which you would naturally think would get people watching.
