Comedic great WC Fields once warned performers, “never work with animals and children”. Last night’s edition of The Voice Kids on Nine proved that to be wrong for metro viewers for about an hour, but not in regional areas, where viewers gave the program of warbling tweenies a far more sceptical reception. The program did well with 2.275 million national/ 1.652 million metro/ 623,000 regional viewers. But that strength couldn’t help Nine to win the night anywhere but in Sydney. In regional markets Seven dominated by 18 points.
