TV Ratings: 'The Voice' Dominates Competition

The Voice - Quarter-Finals 2- FOR BLOG ONLY - 1 -2011

As The Voice nears the end of its first season, it continues to dominate in the Tuesday ratings.

NBC's The Voice (12.1 million total viewers, 4.5 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic) was the highest-rated series of the night, even though it slipped 2 percent compared to the previous week. Team Adam and Team Cee Lo both performed during last night's semifinals, and Team Christina and Team Blake "saved" two artists each who will move on.

America's Got Talent (12.3 million, 3.3) at 8 p.m. sank 11 percent, the lowest-rated episode so far this season. Still, Voice and Talent easily helped NBC win the night in viewers (12.1 million) and the demo (4.1).

Fox's MasterChef (4.3 million, 1.9) remained steady with last Tuesday's telecast.

Ratings Bottom Line: The Voice continues to crush its summer competition.
