Only one result was really possible last night — a solid win by Nine thanks to the grand final of The Voice for 2015. The winner’s announcement had a national audience of 2.183 million and the grand final itself had a national audience of 2.065 million. Good, but not the killer end to the season that we saw in series one or two. That ended the hopes for everyone else. Seven’s Dancing With The Stars (which is interred next week with its Grand Final), averaged 1.072 million nationally (which is better than Restaurant Revolution). Vera was the star with 1.019 million national viewers last night. A good figure. Ten was the one squeezed last night, as we have been seeing on Sunday nights for the past few weeks. Its metro main share was a weak 9.2%; its regional main channel share was just 6.8%, which is weaker than weak, if you get my drift.
