NBC’s The Voice on Monday night drew 12.7 million total viewers and a 3.3 demo rating, per finals — dipping 4 percent and two tenths week-to-week and also down from its previous two performance finales (Season 3: 13.4 mil/4.2, Season 4: 12.7 mil/3.7).

Leading out of that, The Sing-Off did 7.3 mil and a 2.0, up sharply from its most recent, Voice-free telecast (4.6 mil/1.3) but down 7 percent and four tenths from last Monday’s premiere.
