Fast National ratings for Tuesday, April 3, 2012.
It was a big Tuesday for reality results. "Dancing with the Stars" led ABC to an overall win, while "The Voice" performed well enough to give NBC a tie in the key demo, without boosting anything around it.
Meanwhile, it was a night of declining numbers for "Ringer" and "New Girl,"  but ABC's "Body of Proof" added viewers in a late charge to remain on the bubble.
Among adults 18-49, ABC and NBC both averaged a 2.2 rating for the night, tops in the key demographic. FOX's 1.6 rating and the 1.5 rating for CBS followed. The CW averaged a 0.3 key demo rating for Tuesday.
Overall, though, ABC averaged 11.885 million viewers to go with a 7.8 rating/13 share for Tuesday primetime. CBS was second with a 6.0/10 and 8.92 million viewers, followed way back by NBC's 6.26 million viewers and a 4.0/6. FOX was fourth with a 2.1/3 and 3.57 million viewers. The CW averaged a 0.6/1 and 832,000 viewers for the night.
