Another great performance by The Voice gave NBC a win on Tuesday among adults 18-49. The singing competition was down 4 percent from last week to a 4.5 rating/11 share (that later time slot doesn’t help matters), but the Peacock still finished with a winning rating of 3.4/9 for the night, according to early results.

Get this: The show also dominated its time slot among persons 6-11 with a 1.9/10. (Guess the later hour doesn’t matter that much after all.) The Voice also was tops among young men and women 21-49 (6.0/14).

The NCIS finale beat Glee in the 8 p.m. hour (3.8/11 versus 3.5/10). ABC then dominated at 9 with the results show of Dancing With the Stars (3.5/9). It was up 3 percent versus last year and should grow even more next Tuesday when someone (Kirstie Alley?) is rewarded with the mirror ball trophy.

Other highlights: The NCIS: LA finale was up 19 percent versus last year’s finale by earning a  3.2/8, and The Good Wife finale was up 25 percent to a 2.5/6.

CBS was the most-watched network of the night with 15.3 million, while NCIS was the show that attracted the most eyeballs (18 million). Least watched series among the Big Four on Tuesday? Fox’s Breaking In with 3.3 million.
