    The Voice ratings rose probably because more people are getting use to that time slot.

    DWTS is floundering fast, a 2.3 demo rating? Never thought it would be at that point so early in the season.

    That’s good news for the Voice considering it was a results show.

    Good for The Voice getting a bump!

    Should we expect ratings to recover across the board in May? It seems like everything is hitting season lows this month.

    I think the Voice may be more popular than some realize.
    In next week’s TV guide that came a few days ago, the cover is Fan Favorites, viewer voted top shows and stars. The Voice was voted Favorite Singing Competition (Pg. 17.)
    I myself don’t watch, I hardly watch Idol all the time anymore, but apparently other are watching.

    I have a feeling that the result show had higher rating this week was because last week most viewers did not tune in as they expected it to be as last year format.  The fact that 6 contestants are singing might attract viewers to watch the results show.

    Those numbers for a “Darren Criss” centered episode must be disappointing. I know Ryan Murphy and many on this site see him as the “breakout” star of the show but I don’t get it. Other than his initial performance of Teenage Dream (which was awesome), I don’t see why he is getting so much buzz. Plus, at 25, Criss and many others on Glee are really starting to show their age. Hopefully the show can find a younger or younger looking cast next year.

    Glee has suffered from a bunch of delays between episodes this season. There will be a new episode then a week off. It’s schedule has become too sporadic and I think being off for a month while other shows were airing new episodes confused enough casual viewers. 

    I personally can’t get into the Voice because of the Battle Rounds. That is where the show lost me this year, as it lost me last year as well. The pairing on songs is just uneven and biased and I just walk away at that point.

    Oh dear Glee…. and next week will be “Disco week”… Hope a lot of the elder generation will tune in because I am not sure how the younger generation will feel about this type of music. Then again, maybe the younger generation will be attracted to the storylines….:  Alex (Glee project) will be introduced and I smell trouble for at least 2 couples.

    Eh, I expected this for Glee. Going on hiatus for what, 7 weeks? In the middle of the season = ratings drop. The hiatus felt like forever. The show stabilized pretty well before it, so I expect it to climb back up there. The good news is no more weeks off for the remaining 7 episodes!

    Looking at those numbers, I believe that The Voice has accomplished one thing: weakened Dancing With The Stars in the demo. It appears the demo number has moved exclusively in that direction. I think the bump this week might have to do with the Tony/Christina controversy though.

    DWTS appears to be still doing very well among the 50+ crowd, and I would even think a large part of its demo number is at the high end (40-49) as well. Its average age has to be among the highest in all of television right now, close to where cable news lies.

    No adjustments for the shows covered here.  Here is what was included in the final adjustments.

    New Girl, NCIS: Los Angeles, and Last Man Standing were each adjusted up a tent while Raising Hope, Ringer  and The Boiggest Loser  were each adjusted down a tenth in adults 18-49 ratings versus Tuesday’s preliminary ratings.
