Ratings for The Voice, Army Wives Finale, Glee Project Premiere, Thrones and More

The Voice continues to be strong, topping this Tuesday night in the coveted 18-49 demo with a 4.4 rating (down 2 percent week-to-week) while playing to 12.1 million total viewers.

Leading into the NBC sing-off was America’s Got Talent, which with 12.3 million viewers (Tuesday’s biggest draw) and a 3.3 rating was down a few points itself. Fox’s MasterChef (4.3 mil/1.9) was pretty much par with its previous helping.

Elsewhere in the ratingsverse, courtesy of the number-crunches over at TVByTheNumbers:

* Army Wives played taps for its fifth season with an audience of 3.6 million while drawing a 1.2 demo rating (down 8 percent from the aready renewed Lifetime drama’s Season 4 finale).

* Of the two Sunday shows steamrolling toward their own finales, HBO’s Game of Thrones (2.7 mil/1.2) dipped a bit from its week-prior season-high audience, while holding steady in the demo. AMC’s freshly renewed The Killing (1.83 mil/0.5) dipped 8 percent in total viewers.

The Glee Project Premiere: Will You Give This Show a Callback?

* Oxygen’s The Glee Project premiered to just 455,000 total viewers while mustering a 0.2 demo rating. In the name of offering perspective, I will note that Oxygen’s All About Aubrey debuted this past March to 724,000 viewers, The World According to Paris recently bowed to just over 400K, and the latest season finale for Bad Girls Club — the cabler’s pride and joy — drew about 1.5 million viewers.

    I am sure that GOT was severely affected by the NBA Finals. I wonder what the ratings will be next week, when we see how many people quit a show just because it is awesome and killed off the “lead” character. I wonder what will happen to the audience when the rest of the books play out on screen?

    You know what is funny. I’ve never known a time when any entertainment website ever reported on the ratings of the Oxygen channel. I have no idea what this channel generates ratings wise. I wish the websites would compare how TGP did with normal Oxygen programing. Because as abysmal as these ratings are -I just don’t know how to look at it with any perspective. It’s unfair to report these figures without giving the readers some basis of information. Did it do better than other Oxygen programing during that time? It seems the writers of these articles are more interested in reporting how bad it did -because it is Glee -then giving the reader any perspective!

    I do wonder who decided that premiering The Glee Project on the same night as the Tony’s telecast was a good idea…

    Garrett is a joke. Blaming the NBA finals for the show going down in viewers. Game of Thrones fans have an excuse every week why the show isn’t a huge hit. It’s unbelievable already. No cable show on Sunday was down a lot. Everything was stable or up some. That means nothing was effected by the NBA. Stop making excuses for your show.

    Makes sense to me that Army Wives ratings were down from the previous season. Season 5’s finale was pretty boring.

    • Lyn says:

      Have to agree, Tanya. After a pretty good season, the finale was not only dull, but a little confusing. The potential bombshell of the base closing was plopped into the plot with almost no fanfare — and it’s hard to know how they expect us to be that excited about it since we know the show’s been renewed for a sixth season. It will take some major changes (e.g. in the cast) to produce a new season that will “blow us away” as promised.

      • Alicia says:

        It has been announced the sixth season will be the last. I think it will be more emotional than blow you away type season.

  6. Linda says:

    Sorry to read In Plain Sight’s ratings are down. It is a good show and I will be sad to see it go, if it is not renewed.

    • Layla says:

      Last year In Plain Sight was renewed for its fourth and fifth seasons, to run in 2011 and 2012. :)

    • Lyn says:

      Ugh: I’m fed up with yet another show in which the supposedly smart-as-a-whip female lead somehow manages to get pregnant by accident. It’s idiotic. I’d rather see almost any lame solution to Mary Mc’s real-life pregnancy rather than having her anti-children, marriage-averse character suddenly decide to have and keep a baby. She cuts loose that utterly gorgeous ex-boyfriend because she doesn’t want to have a family, but now decides to have a kid on her own?!? Just stupid.

    The Glee Project competed with the Tony’s… seriously??? way to divide the gay viewers.
