TV Ratings: 'The Voice' Rises Again, 'Go On' Steady, 'New Normal' Slips
Week two continues to be a good one for NBC's The Voice. After a Monday-to-Monday boost, Tuesday's broadcast also is up in fast affiliate numbers, rising 13 percent to a 4.5 rating among adults 18-49. It's still shy of its comparable score during the last cycle. The Matthew Perry vehicle Go On continues to perform well for the peacock. It only lost a tenth of a point from its showing last week, posting a 3.3 rating among 18-49, though it did have a stronger lead. The New Normal was down 12 percent for a 2.2 adults rating, while Parenthood dropped just five percent for a 1.8 rating in the key demo. Overall, NBC averaged a 3.1 adults rating for the night and 8.7 million viewers.
So You Think You Can Dance saw a modest bump over last week's score, pulling a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 on Fox. The season finale was still down 25 percent from last year, though that episode didn't air as late in the summer. The two-hour episode pulled in 4.6 million viewers.
Encores brought in a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 8.8 million viewers for CBS. Univision also posted a 1.5 rating in the demo.
ABC had encores and a special broadcast of 20/20, Best in TV: The Greatest TV Shows of Our Time. The latter brought in a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49, giving the network an average 1.4 adults rating and 6.3 million viewers for the night.
Encores gave The CW a 0.3 rating with 18-49-ers and an average of 634,000 viewers.
