A marathon episode of The Voice failed to hit a ratings crescendo and had to settle for third place behind House Rules.

The Voice's first final attracted 1.344 million, its lowest Monday night ratings for the season. The result was disappointing for Nine which had built up the first final of the The Voice as a live show even though it was pre-recorded over two nights.

Seven's reality renovation series House Rules dominated the night with 1.473 million viewers. Nine News took second place with 1.369 million.

Caught in the cross-fire of The Voice and House Rules was Network Ten's cooking show MasterChef which is holding up well considering the stiff competition. It came in ninth with 913,000 viewers.
