The Voice took a ratings hit up against the NCAA championship. It dropped from a 1.5 in the key 18-49 demo last week to a 1.2 this week. American Idol at 1.1 st stayed even with last week, and rose from Sunday’s 1.1 series low. The Voice matched its series low notched last spring for the live 1 hour Top 11 Results show on May 1. The rating is a series low for a 2 hour telecast. 

A repeat of the Big Bang Theory was the highest rated non-sports program of the night, garnering a 1.8 rating in the demo.
