Dancing-with-the-Stars-ATwo nights left of the TV season and NBC scored a Tuesday night win.

Its big show, "The Voice" at 9 p.m., was down 11% to land at a 3.1/9 -- the best-rated show of the night. Earlier in the evening, NBC offered a TV news program -- "NBC News Special: Devastation in Oklahoma" -- reaching a 2.0/6, the top-rated program in the 8 p.m. hour.

For the night, NBC averaged a Nielsen 2.3 rating/7 share among 18-49 viewers.

Right behind NBC was the finale of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," which hit a 2.6/7 -- up a big 44% from the previous week's 1.8 rating. As with many TV shows, "Stars" was down 21% from last year's finale, which had a 3.3 rating -- the lowest-rated finale in the show’s history.

ABC came in second place to NBC for the night with a 2.1/6.

After these three shows came Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance?", which has just started up its summer run. It was at a 1.9/6 for a two-hour episode. Those numbers were at the same level as its premiere a week before. Fox averaged a 1.9/6 on the night, good for third place.

Univision came next a 1.4/4, followed by CBS, which has already moved into summer rerun mode for the night, coming in with an average 1.3/4. CBS will win the season among 18-49 viewers, for the first time in two decades.

Sister CBS network CW also went with reruns, landing at a 0.3/1 among 18-49 viewers.

    Dancing started with too many non stars so it lost momentum from the get go plus feel good not good "stars" are not cutting the mustard. But what are the C3 and C7 ratings ?
