TV ratings: 'The Voice' leads Tuesday as 'Extreme Weight Loss' sheds viewers

Tuesday's ratings told a pretty familiar story from the past couple of weeks: "The Voice" was far and away the night's top show in both viewers and adults 18-49 -- and carried NBC to a win in the latter category -- even as it declined a little bit more.

Also Tuesday, "So You Think You Can Dance" dipped a little in adults 18-49 but was up in viewers over a week ago. It was not a good night for premieres, as ABC's "Extreme Weight Loss" came in lower than last year's opener and CBS' docu-series "Brooklyn DA" didn't make much of an impression. The finale of "Body of Proof" won the 10 o'clock hour but was down from recent performances.

CBS led the night in viewers, drawing 7.3 million people and a 4.9 rating/8 share in households. NBC (6.6 million, 4.2/7) came in second. ABC (5.3 million, 3.6/6) edged FOX (5 million, 3.1/5) for third place, and The CW was way back with 680,000 viewers and a 0.4/1.

NBC posted a 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic, narrowly beating FOX's 1.8 for the lead. ABC earned a 1.2 to finish third, followed by CBS, 1.1, and The CW, 0.2.
