voice s1 finale ratings TV ratings: 'The Voice' finale dips, but NBC still rules WednesdayFast National ratings for Wednesday, June 29, 2011

The inaugural season of “The Voice” ended on a lower ratings note than its season average and was down by almost 2 million viewers from Tuesday’s performance show. Still, it was better than anything NBC has aired in its timeslot in some time and helped the network to a big win Wednesday, even though the premiere of “Love in the Wild” pulled only modest numbers.

NBC averaged 10.2 million viewers and a 5.8 rating/10 share in households for the night. CBS was the best of the rest with 6 million viewers and a 3.9/7, beating out FOX (5.35 million, 3.2/6). ABC (3.9 million, 2.5/4) came in fourth. The CW trailed with a little under a million viewers and a 0.6/1.

In the adults 18-49 demographic, NBC’s 3.2 rating was by far the night’s best. FOX took second with a 1.9, while ABC and CBS tied for third at 1.2. The CW scored a 0.4.
