Fast National ratings for Tuesday, May 28, 2013.
“The Voice” hit yet another series low on Tuesday, but that hour was still enough to help NBC score a narrow win among young viewers, but not enough to help push NBC above CBS overall.
CBS won Tuesday in total viewers entirely on the strength of repeats of “NCIS” and “NCIS: Los Angeles,” because the series premiere of “Brooklyn D.A.” was a disappointment for the network.
Among other notables, ABC’s “Extreme Weight Loss” had a weak premiere, “Body of Proof” did OK overall numbers in its finale on the network and FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance” was steady.
For the night, NBC averaged a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49, edging out FOX’s 1.8 rating in the key demographic. ABC’s 1.2 key demo rating and the 1.1 key demo rating for CBS followed, while The CW averaged a 0.2 key demo rating.
Overall, though, CBS won Tuesday night with 7.27 million viewers and a 4.9 rating/8 share, topping NBC’s 4.2/7 and 6.58 million viewers. ABC was third with a 3.6/6 and 5.29 million viewers, with FOX’s 3.1/5 and 4.96 million viewers close behind. The CW averaged 680,000 viewers and a 0.4/1 for the night.
[Univision averaged 3.41 million viewers and a 1.3 key demo rating for Tuesday night.]
