NBC’s The Voice kicked off Season 12 on Monday with 13 million total viewers and a 3.1 rating (per finals), marking the competition’s fourth straight demo decline for a premiere, yet dominating the night in both measures.
Leading out of that, the Taken premiere did 7.5 mil and a 1.6, landing just below Timeless‘ own apres-Voice launch (7.6 mil/1.8) and easily leading all scripted fare. TVLine readers gave it an average grade of “B-.”

Airdate April 11th, 1991

The image itself looks like a map with mountains that have swirling vortices inside them »
