Competition with American Idol Edit
During this season, the show found itself in competition with American Idol, which had been relaunched on ABC after having been cancelled by Fox in 2016. The Voice stood strong in the ratings throughout most of the season with Idol winning the ratings war on a couple of occasions. Idol's strong showing in the ratings helped it get renewed for a second season on ABC.
