The launch aired the night of the Tokyo Olympics Closing Ceremony and has added 272,000 viewers on BVOD since that night.

The Voice is the only entertainment format this year to average over a million metro viewers, and three episodes made it into the top five of the latest Total TV Top 20 Programs Consolidated 7 Audience VOZ report.

Two episodes following the launch had 2.118 million viewers and 2.05 million viewers respectively.
