NBC is singing a very, very happy tune this morning, given the fact that The Voice drew 12.4 million total viewers and a 5.6 demo rating in its second week, gaining 5 and 10 percent from its week-ago premiere. True story, per NBC: This marks the first new series of this TV season to deliver Week 1 to Week 2 growth in total audience or the demo. Huh. As such, the freshman singing competition has been added to TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard as a “sure thing.”
CBS, meanwhile, was glad to see the Florrick marriage hit the skids on Tuesday night. The first round of fallout from Peter’s newly discovered betrayal drew 12.3 million onlookers and a 2.3 rating, representing gains of some 15 percent and the drama’s best demos since Oct. 26.
Elsewhere this Tuesday:
8/7c | NCIS was the night’s most watched program, delivering 17.32 million viewers while scoring a 3.6 demo rating. Glee (8.6 mil/3.6) rebounded from last week’s season low by gaining 6 percent in the demo. One Tree Hill dropped 14 percent to 1.24 million viewers and a 0.6 rating.
9/8c | The Dancing With the Stars results show (15.6 million/2.9 rating) tumbled double digits but still led the hour in total viewers, while The Voice dominated the demos across its two-hour run. NCIS: LA (14 mil/2.8) was down 15 percent. Raising Hope (4.92 mil/1.9) held steady versus The Voice, while Hellcats dipped 9 percent in total audience, to (eek) under a million. (Scorecard updated, sad trombone.)
10/9c | The second hour of The Voice bested all comers in both measures, though the aforementioned Good Wife placed a close second in total viewers. ABC’s Body Of Proof (10.4 mil/2.0) was down 13 percent.
What were you tuned into this Tuesday? Do you think The Voice is a keeper?
