TV Ratings: NBC's 'The Voice' drowns out the competition

"The Voice" didn't have much trouble shouting down the competition on Tuesday night since NBC was the only network running original programming in its time slot. Another NBC offering, "America's Got Talent," also trumped a slate of (mostly) reruns on offer from the other networks. FOX's "Masterchef," also running in the 8 p.m. slot, failed to attract a significant audience.

NBC averaged 12.1 million viewers and a 4.1 rating/12 share in households for the night. CBS came in at a distant second with 7.3 million viewers and a 1.1 rating/3 share while FOX (3.5 million, 1.5/5) -- which did offer new programming in the form of Gordon Ramsay's cooking competition -- came in third. The CW (805,000, 0.2/1) brought up the rear.
