It is officially on between The Voice and The X Factor, as Simon Cowell's Fox competition kicked off Season 2 last night, while Christina Aguilera and company aired their third consecutive night of blind auditions.
Who won the ratings war?
On the whole, both programs shows averaged a 3.3 rating in the 18-49-year old demographic, but The Voice outdrew The X Factor in total viewers, 10.7 million to 8.5 million. The latter was down nearly 4 million viewers from last year's series premiere. OUCH.
So… point, NBC, for a change.
However, The Voice did lose 17 percent of its audience from its Tuesday night performance show.
