'Voice' Sings For NBC, 'NCIS' Solid For CBS

NBC kept its Tuesday winning streak intact for its usual prime-time programming after its winning night during the presidential election a week ago. But its lead on the night was drastically cut.

For Tuesday night overall, NBC was at a Nielsen preliminary 2.6 rating/7 share among 18-49 viewers -- this versus a 4.0/10 two weeks before, when it and other networks were airing their usual fare.

Much of this came from "The Voice," which sank to a Nielsen preliminary 3.8/11 among 18-49 viewers from a 4.6 rating two weeks before, its last original episode.

Other networks stayed pretty much the same: CBS earned a 2.5/7 versus a 2.6/7; Fox was at a 1.7/4 versus a 1.7/5; Univision, 1.6/4 versus a 1.7/4; ABC, 1.4/4 versus a 1.5/4; and CW remained at a 0.5/1 week-to-week.

After "The Voice" -- which led the night in those 18-49 ratings -- CBS' "NCIS" was next at a 3.0/9, down a bit from its last original episode. CBS' "NCIS: Los Angeles" was at a 2.8/7, its season low.

NBC's new comedy "Go On" continues to garner good results with a 2.3/6. The show is competitive at 9 p.m., with Fox's  "New Girl" earning a 2.2/6.

NBC's "Parenthood" continues to win at 10 p.m. -- although it and CBS' "Vegas" lost a bit of steam this week. "Parenthood" was at a 1.8/5; "Vegas" was at a 1.6/4; with ABC's "Private Practice" hitting another series low at 1.1/3.

ABC's best result on the night still comes from "Dancing with the Stars," which is now at a 1.9/5 --  a distant third place at 8 p.m.
