The Voice's two-part finale has bounced back from its ratings decline in 2018, reaching more than one million metro viewers overnight.

Split into two parts, Winner Announced and Grand Final, The Voice took out the top spot in primetime last night, with 1.03 and 995,000 viewers tuning in for each part, respectively.

The 2019 finale, which saw Diana Rouvas of team Boy George crowned winner, was up on last year's Winner Announced and Grand Final, with each part drawing in 987,000 and 968,000, respectively in 2018.

The show had been dominate for Nine in the primetime slot this year, with the reality singing competition retaining its top ratings position throughout the season and continuing the strong start to the year for the network off the back on Married at First Sight and Lego Masters.

Overnight Seven and Ten were unable to match the ratings success of The Voice, with House Rules drawing in 694,000 overnight metro viewers and MasterChef reaching 638,000.

Nine will be hoping this will continue tonight, as Australian Ninja Warrior returns for its third season, with the network promising to crown the show's first winner in 2019.

In the overnight main channel race, Nine took out the top spot with a 24.7% share, while Seven came in second with 19.4%. Ten narrowly held onto third place with 11.6%, with ABC trailing closely behind with 10.9%.
