Coming in just two-tenths of a point shy of last week's performance show, The Voice topped the night's broadcast offerings on NBC with a 3.3 rating among adults 18-49 and 11.3 million viewers. The Blacklist, averaging a steady 3.0 rating, topped the night's scripted fare and gave NBC a nightly average of a 3.2 rating with adults 18-49 and 11.1 million viewers.

The first night of Dancing With the Stars' season finale saw a modest boost from last week, inching up two-tenths of a point to a 2.2 rating with adults 18-49. That's half of a point shy of last November's comparable episode. Castle (2.1 adults), up two-tenths as well, wrapped the night on ABC -- giving the network an average 2.1 adults rating and a dominant 13.3 million viewers.

CBS, which saw NFL interruptions in San Francisco, may see more than the typical adjustments in final returns -- but averaged a 2.1 rating with adults 18-49 and 6.8 million viewers. How I Met Your Mother (2.9 adults) came in two-tenths behind last week's episode, while 2 Broke Girls (2.7 adults) held steady. Both Mike & Molly (2.5 adults) and Mom (2.2 adults) were up, a respective two- and three-tenths of a point. Hostages (1.1 adults) was also up by a tenth.

Fox also averaged a 2.1 rating with adults 18-49, notching 6.3 million viewers for the night. Almost Human (1.9 adults) was down another four-tenths of a point in its third outing, and Sleepy Hollow (2.2 adults) brought its softest showing to date, down three-tenths of a point.

The ever-steady Hart of Dixie (0.4 adults) and Beauty and the Beast (0.3 adults) gave The CW a nightly average of a 0.3 rating with adults 18-49 and 920,000 viewers.
