Tuesday Ratings: NBC’s ‘The Voice’ Drops, ABC’s ‘101 Ways..Game Show’ On The Map

Written by Michael Lambarde on Jun. 22, 2011

It was another Tuesday in the summer and another win for NBC, courtesy of its three-hour reality block line-up of America’s Got Talent and The Voice. However, ABC was also on the board with its all-new line-up, including two series premieres, but that was not good enough to beat NBC’s line-up.

At 8PM, NBC’s (11.86 million, 3.9 adults 18-49 demographic) summer hit series America’s Got Talent ruled for the network, drawing 11.97 million viewers and a 3.2 demographic among young adults 18-49. Talent was up 5% among total viewers and 3% in the demo compared to last week. From 9-11PM, NBC aired two-hours of The Voice, which drew 11.81 million and a 4.3 demo on average, down 7% in both total viewers and the demo from last week.

ABC (5.38 million, 1.6 demo) then aired a “special sneak peak” preview of Wipeout at 8PM, which drew 5.33 million and a 1.7 demographic. Good news for the network is that the series premiere of 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show outrated its lead-in by 11% in the demo, drawing 5.55 million and a 1.9 demo. ABC’s series premiere of Combat Hosptail only drew 5.26 million and a 1.2 demo.

FOX (3.30 million, 1.4 demo) went with an original MasterChef, drawing 4.14 million and a 1.8 demo and two reruns of Raising Hope — the first drawing 2.6 million and a 1.2 demo and the latter drawing 2.34 million and a 1.0 demo.

CBS (7.56 million, 1.1 demo) was actually second in total viewers but fourth in the demo with its all-repeat line-up of NCIS (9.15 million, 1.3), NCIS: LA (8.76 million, 1.3), and The Good Wife (5.26 million, 1.2). The CW went with reruns of One Tree Hill (980,000 viewers, 0.4) and Hellcats (790,000 viewers, 0.3).
