The Voice - Season 5UPDATE, 2:25 PM: Looks like there’s even more holiday cheer out of  The Voice’s Tuesday performance. Final numbers are in and the NBC singing show saw an addition 3% rise among adults 18-49 to 3.4/10 over the fast nationals that had the show up 10% from last week’s Tuesday low tie. The Voice’s 13% rise over its November 26 show may have been helped by the 5% bop up that The Biggest Loser got in final numbers.

With a 2.6/7 rating, NBC was No. 1 among adults 18-49 on Tuesday while a repeat-filled CBS was in the top slot viewer-wise with 10.124 million.

CBS was all encores last night with NCIS (1.6/5), NCIS: LA (1.4/4) and Person Of Interest (1.3/4). NCIS was the most-watched show of Tuesday’s primetime with 12.37 million viewers.

Fox had an almost full slate of originals last night with a 9 PM New Girl (0.9/3) the only encore. It was a good night for the network’s newbies with Dads (1.4/4) marking a 17% rise over its November 26 series low and Brooklyn Nine-Nine (1.6/5) bopping up 7%.
