NBC topped the last Tuesday of the 2015-16 season with the finale of The Voice, easily besting its closest competition — ABC's Dancing With the Stars.

But both series closed their spring cycles with finale lows, each down considerably from the same time last year. The Voice averaged a 2.1 rating among adults 18-49 and 10.4 million viewers, while Dancing With the Stars, airing in the same two-hour block, logged a 1.6 rating in the key demo and 10.3 million viewers.

ABC paired Dancing With the Stars with the season finales of Fresh Off the Boat (1.3 adults) and The Real O'Neals (1.0 adults).

Another The Price is Right primetime special aired on CBS, netting a 1.1 rating in the key demo before back-to-back episodes of Person of Interest (0.9 adults).

Fox saw the return of Hotel Hell pull a 0.8 rating with adults 18-49, while Coupled held steady (and low) with a 0.5 rating in the key demo.

The Flash finale nabbed a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 on The CW, partnered with a new episode of Containment (0.5 adults).
