'Voice' fans give NBC a Tuesday win

Anticipation for tonight’s first season finale of The Voice gave NBC a win on Tuesday. The singing competition earned a 4.3 rating/12 share in adults 18-49 and ruled the night in the demo and viewers (12.5 million), according to early results. The Voice, in fact, dominated most of the key demographics, like kids, men and women 35-54 (6.7/15).

America’s Got Talent posted a 3.2/10 and averaged 12 million. Overall, NBC averaged a 3.9/12 in adults and 12.3 million viewers.

Other highlights from Tuesday: ABC’s Wipeout posted a 1.8/6 and 5.5 million viewers while 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show earned a 1.8/5 and 5.3 million. Combat Hospital earned a 1.1/3, down 8 percent from last week’s premiere, and 4.6 million eyeballs. (What is that show again? You watching?)

CBS aired repeats. Fox aired an original MasterChef (1.7/6, 4.2 million).

    Wouldn’t it be 9.2 million eyeballs? Unless Combat Hospital is exclusively watched by a bunch of Cyclopses.

      Exactly what I was thinking… cyclopses or pirates.

    It is really amazing how few people watch TV during the summer.

      It’s mostly a lot of reruns along with the typical reality show fare. Most people feel that they’ve already seen them and don’t want to see them again in the summer. I notice it too with the 1.7s and the 3.7s and 4.8s versus the big audiences of the new shows in the fall season.

    But ABC’s lineup was kind of weak when competing against the superior The Voice on NBC.
