TV Ratings: 'Voice' Logs Finale Low, 'Dancing' Ender Steady on Tuesday Night
The Voice may have been up week over week, but the NBC competition hit a finale low on Tuesday night — averaging a 2.8 rating among adults 18-49. Hardly as dramatic a drop as the ones that have afflicted American Idol in recent years, the newer series was still off half a point from the last two cycles.
Dancing With the Stars, on the flip side, was steady with its last spring-cycle finale with a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49. That two-hour ender followed a special Tuesday outing of The Bachelorette (1.9 adults), off just two-tenths of a point from the Monday premiere.
Fox aired back-to-back episodes of Hell's Kitchen, averaging a 1.2 and 1.3 rating in the key demo. Starting next week, the show shifts to the 9 p.m. hour.
The CW also aired finales: steady outings of renewed first-year series The Flash (1.4 adults) and iZombie (0.7 adults).
