The ratings for Tuesday night are hardly the liveliest that have ever been reported in television history, and there’s a reason for that: Ultimately, there just was not that much that happened over the course of the day. You had a few shows airing new episodes, while many of the networks opted for either repeats and holiday specials. For the sake of our ratings articles here at CarterMatt, we tend to not pay too much attention to any of that stuff.
The winners – The big one is “The Voice” finale, which closed with a 2.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic. While it’s far from the biggest finale in the history of the show, this is a number that NBC has to be happy with given that the past few weeks have been one huge coronation for Jordan Smith.
The … losers? – It’s hard to call anyone a major loser in the Tuesday ratings, since no shows really suffered a huge decline. “NCIS: New Orleans” suffered the most with a 1.5, but even this is not a huge drop. “NCIS” (2.1) and “Limitless” (1.3) had tiny improvements, but we’d say that the only disappointment here with the two of them is that given that there was so much less competition out there and they really should have picked up some better numbers than they did.
Ultimately, we don’t exactly think that there are going to be a whole lot of stories to report on with Tuesday-night ratings for the rest of the month, given that the majority of the networks are not going to be airing very much. We will have some further news as we start to hear about it.
