“The Voice” and “Dancing With the Stars” each had their lowest-rated finales ever among adults 18-49 on Tuesday. “The Voice” earned a 1.9 rating in the demographic, three tenths of a point below the previous low of 2.2 set last May. (The fall 2016 cycle closed with a 2.5).
“DWTS,” meanwhile, came in with a 1.3, also three tenths below the previous low from last spring. It was off half a point from Monday’s episode.
Elsewhere, the season finale of “The Flash” (1.1) rose two tenths vs. last week but was off 0.2 from last season’s finale. “iZombie” is currently up a tenth vs. a week at 0.4, pending updates.
“Bull” closed its season on CBS with a 1.1, matching its season low. The finale of “Great News” (0.8/0.7) was up over last week’s 0.7/0.6, while “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (0.7/0.6) held steady. ABC’s “Downward Dog” (1.0) held up pretty well, falling just a tenth from its premiere — probably in part thanks to its proximity to the “DWTS” finale.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
