Night 2 of The Voice‘s Battle Rounds drew 14.2 million total viewers and a 4.6 demo rating this Tuesday night, per Nielsen finals, dominating its time slot and more than doubling the demo of any other Tuesday program.

The singing competition also hit a new Tuesday high for this cycle.

Leading out of that mighty performance, however, Ready for Love held onto a paltry 3.2 mil/1.2, down 8 percent from its week-ago premiere. That’s retention of not even 30 percent, folks. (And I thought my dates went bad.)
