NBC’s The Voice was the top show in the adults 18-49 demographic on Tuesday in primetime, earning a preliminary 4.5 rating and 9.9 million total viewers to give the network the nightly demo win. It wasn’t such good news for Fox’s Breaking In, which the network moved to its Tuesday night comedy block after canceling it last week, suggesting it might be rethinking its move to end the show. Lacking its usual American Idol lead-in, however, the sitcom managed only a 1.4 demo rating and 3.2 million viewers behind Raising Hope (up 10% with a 2.2 rating). Breaking In fared better than Traffic Light in the slot, up 8%, but that’s probably not good enough to give it a reprieve.
CBS won the night in total viewers and was up across the board, with the season finale of The Good Wife (2.5 rating) up 25% compared with last week leading the way. The finale of NCIS (3.8) was up 9% over last week, and NCIS: LA (3.2) grew 13% from last week and 19% compared with last May’s finale.
On ABC, a Dancing With the Stars special (2.4) was up 14% from last week; the results show (3.5) was up 3%. The season finale of Body Of Proof (2.2) was up 5% over last week. On The CW, the series finale of Hellcats drew 1.2 million viewers and a 0.5 rating.
