Ratings: New Girl, The Voice and Unforgettable Rise With Finales, Private Practice At New Low
The Voice’s second coronation drew 11.6 million total viewers and a night-leading 4.3 demo rating, up 7 and 23 percent from its Season 1 capper. New Girl wrapped its freshman run with 5.53 mil/2.8, surging 26 percent, while Unforgettable (10.7 mil/2.0) rose 11 percent in the demo. Last Man Standing (6.6 mil/1.7) was up 13 percent in the demo.
Tuesday’s biggest blow meanwhile was absorbed by ABC bubble show Private Practice (6.1 mil/1.5), which opposite the back half of The Voice‘s two-hour finale dropped 18 and 29 percent, hitting a new demo low. (And before you cry “foul,” note that Unforgettable was up versus that stiffer 10 o’clock competition.)
* NCIS was the night’s most-watched program with 17.8 million total viewers, yet dipped a tenth in the demo to a new season low of 3.0. A very fun NCIS: LA was steady at 14.5 mil/3.0, crushing DWTS (13.3 mil/2.3) but placing second in the hour in the demo, behind The Voice.
* Setting the table for New Girl, Glee (6.5 mil/2.6) itself saw gains of 8 percent and a tenth.
* Cougar Town (4.72 mil/1.5) rose 15 percent in the demo.
* Both 90210 (1.32 mil/0.6) and The L.A. Complex (678K/0.3) grabbed a few more viewers.
