Ratings: Voice Soars Higher, Good Wife's Great

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.)

Good Wife Recap: How Do You Think Alicia Handled It?

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.

    We tuned in to NCIS as always on Tuesday nights! Also recorded The Good Wife which I’ll watch tonight (Wednesday nights without Human Target have zero to watch). Looking forward to it.

  7. Sally says:

    Happy for The Good Wife! A 2.4 is great! And with The Voice as competition, too. Waiting for its renewal announcement!

  8. Deena says:

    The Voice was amazing. Also NCIS!

  9. GIL says:

    I am loving “The Voice” and I’m usually not a follower of any reality or singing competition….
    The Good Wife is a great show and I also like Body of Proof….decisions, decisions, decisions….

    I’m happy GOOD WIFE and THE VOICE are doing so great!

    I thought that the ratings might go up due to the good word of mouth. I just hope that there isn’t a “controversy” over some of the contestants. NBC had said that they wouldn’t be as limiting as AI in terms of talent who had some hint of success. None of these people are currently signed, and that’s the ONLY real criteria. That said, it seemed like they stacked the deck and aired the “best” voices last week. This week, meh. Still, I think if it works out to a Final 4 of once from each mentor, that final 4 could be pretty solid.

    • Tyler says:

      The Voice producers hand-picked the 72 contestants for the show. They didn’t do garbage tryouts like AI does so you can get cheap entertainment value out of bad auditions. The Voice is a much more serious show, to me, and that’s why I choose to watch it and no longer watch AI.

  12. Raksha says:

    I love the voice. I really, really do. But I am happier that NBC is getting some love ratings wise. It deserves it. I mean, it has some of the best shows on TV – 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Office, and…the amazing, amazing Community. Not to mention Chuck.

  13. Kristen says:

    LOVE The Voice and Good Wife! I’m so glad they are both doing so great. They are deserving of renewals. I’m anxious to see how The Voice does next week without the anticipation of the blind auditions. I found myself on the edge of my seat yelling at the tv for someone to push the button. LOL Hope both shows keep going strong!

  14. Monique says:

    Because of this weeks ratings of The Good Wife I’m feeling a lot better about a renewal. It’s such a fantastic show and probably too good for CBS.

  15. Ray says:

    I completely agree with Raksha. All the NBC shows she listed are great, along with Friday Night Lights, Parenthood and Harry’s Law (plus my guilty pleasure, Celeb Apprentice).

    But I am LOVING The Voice. It’s not just that many of the singers are really good, it’s the chemistry between the Coaches. Loved Adam’s confusion over whether that balding dude was “a chick” before he turned around. “Sadly, you have a penis.” LOL!

    I’m glad Body of Proof is still doing very well!
