The Season 3 premiere of The Voice easily topped Monday, but also posted the series' lowest-rated premiere ever.

The two-hour telecast, the show's first in the fall, was predictably down from its Super Bowl-boosted Season 2 premiere, averaging 12 million viewers and a 4.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic — dropping 39 percent and 25 percent, respectively. The episode also took a 15 percent dip from last season's Monday night average.
