Basketball Rolls Tuesday for ABC as NBC’s ‘Voice’ Hits Low

Basketball Rolls Tuesday for ABC as NBC’s ‘Voice’ Hits Low

The NBA Finals gave ABC another easy victory in key demos Tuesday, a night that saw NBC’s “The Voice” hit a low one week from its finale.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “The Voice” averaged a 2.7 rating/9 share in adults 18-49 and 10.3 million viewers overall in the 8 o’clock hour, down about 10% from last week for its lowest regular episode of the season. Holding up better was the second week of “America’s Got Talent” (3.0/8 in 18-49, 11.5 million viewers overall), which nearly matched its season-premiere score — despite facing the NBA Finals this time — and built on “The Voice” to stand as Tuesday’s No. 1 series.

Numbers for ABC are subject to significant revision due to live sports action, but the NBA Finals averaged a 4.9/14 in 18-49 and 12 million viewers overall on the Alphabet’s stations from 9 to 11 p.m. — on par with Game 1 from last Thursday, which translated in the nationals to a 5.7 demo rating and 14.24 million viewers overall.

Elsewhere, Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” (1.6/5 in 18-49, 4.2 million viewers overall) was just a sliver off last week’s averages while edging up in adults 18-34 (to 1.5/5).

CBS aired encores of “NCIS” (1.1/4 in 18-49, 8.5 million viewers overall) and “NCIS: Los Angeles” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 7.4 million viewers overall), followed by struggling newcomer “Brooklyn DA” (0.6/2 in 18-49, 3.7 million viewers overall), which was down a tick from last week and finished behind Telemundo telenovela ” El Senor de los Cielos” in 18-49 (0.7).

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: ABC, 4.0/12; NBC, 2.9/9; Fox, 1.6/5; Univision, 1.1/3; CBS, 0.9/3; Telemundo, 0.6/2; CW, 0.2/1.

In total viewers: NBC, 11.1 million; ABC, 10.0 million; CBS, 6.5 million; Fox, 4.2 million; Univision, 3.0 million; Telemundo, 1.5 million; CW, 0.7 million.
