Ratings: Voice Rises, Dance Dips, Talent Is Tops

The Season 1 finale of The Voice was watched by 10.8 million total viewers and drew a 3.5 rating — NBC’s best demo number for the Wednesday-at-8 time slot since January 2008.

Building further on those tallies was America’s Got Talent, which drew 13.3 million viewers and a 4.0 rating — the show’s best demo for a non-finale Wednesday outing in almost five years. AGT won the night in both measures.
