The premiere of “The Voice” was down from its fall debut this season, but it was still strong enough to lead the week of Feb. 29-March 6.

The two editions of the show scored the best 18-49 ratings of the week (3.4 and 3.0) and finished second and third in viewers. “NCIS” led the viewer tally for the week with 15.44 million people tuning in.

“The Big Bang Theory,” which has been No. 1 for most of the winter, aired a repeat but still finished in the Top 25.
