In its first one-hour episode in its regular time period, NBC's "The Voice" took a big dip, but the Battles still performed well enough to help the network split the Tuesday ratings race with CBS.
Among adults 18-49, NBC averaged a 3.3 rating for the night, beating CBS' 2.8 rating and the 2.7 rating for FOX in the key demographic. ABC was a close fourth with a 2.3 rating. The CW's 0.5 rating wasn't especially close in fifth.
Overall, though, CBS averaged an estimated 14.48 million viewers to go with a 9.2 rating/15 share. ABC was a solid second with an 8.3/13 and an estimated 12.82 million viewers, far ahead of NBC's 4.9/8 and 7.97 million viewers. FOX's 4.1/6 and 6.72 million was good for fourth. As usual, The CW trailed with a 0.8/1 and nearly 1.3 million viewers.
8 p.m. - As usual, CBS' "NCIS" ruled the 8 p.m. hour overall with 17.1 million viewers and finished second among adults 18-49 with a 3.5 rating. ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" recap show averaged 11.05 million viewers in second. FOX's "Glee" rose in viewers with 9.09 million and won the hour with a 3.6 key demo rating. NBC finished fourth overall with the 6.34 million viewers for "Biggest Loser," which came in third in the key demographic, edging out ABC.
