"The Voice" posted its second straight night of Week 2 improvement, leading into relatively stable performances by "Go On" and "Parenthood" and giving NBC an easy win among young viewers on the final pre-season Tuesday of the summer. CBS, with a trio of "NCIS"-related repeats, actually won the night overall.
FOX, meanwhile, got only a tiny finale bump for "So You Think You Can Dance," which was flat against last week's already lackluster performance episode until a 9:30 p.m. spike.
For the night, NBC averaged a 3.1 rating among adults 18-49, tops in the key demographic. FOX's 1.6 rating, CBS' 1.5 rating and the 1.4 key demo rating for ABC followed at a distance, still far ahead of the 0.3 key demo rating for The CW.

And on The CW, a repeat of "The Next" averaged 587,000 viewers and a 0.2 key demo rating.
