Across the 18 episode series, the interactive talent show attracted an average audience share of 30% of all viewers. RISING STAR regularly aired against the first season of Survivor and held its audience. The season finale was much talked about due to its extremely tense and close competition, in which the two singers were only 0.2% apart in audience votes.
