The Voice ratings tumbled from a 3.0 in the demo, posted in last week’s final ratings update, to a 2.5 preliminary rating. The Voice hasn’t been adjusting upward much this season, and in fact adjusted downward last week.

Dancing with the Stars soared from a 1.8 to a 2.4, numbers due at at least in part by last night being the penultimate episode. Dancing with the Stars crowns a winner tonight.

However, DWTS was pre-empted in Boston and Buffalo for football. You might see some downward adjustments to the show’s numbers when final ratings are released this afternoon.
