A later start for "The Voice" cost it some viewers on Tuesday, but NBC's singing competition was still the night's top show among adults 18-49. The "Dancing With the Stars" results show was up a bit from last week, while "Glee" and "NCIS" were both steady -- albeit at the lower end of their range for this season.

CBS led the night overall with 14.5 million viewers and a 9.2 rating/15 share in households. ABC (12.8 million, 8.3/13) was a solid second. NBC came in third with 8 million viewers and a 4.9/8, beating out FOX (6.7 million, 4.1/6). The CW (1.3 million, 0.8/1) trailed.

Thanks to "The Voice," NBC led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 3.3 rating. CBS, 2.8, narrowly beat FOX, 2.7, for second place, while ABC was not far behind with a 2.4. The CW drew a 0.5 in the demo.
