NBC was back on top Monday, a week after relinquishing the crown to CBS.
The Voice's final performance show drew 10.5 million and a 3.7 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, up two-tenths from last week. It was, however, way off the 4.4 rating the Season 1 final performance earned last summer. Smash's penultimate episode of the season also improved, snagging 6 million and a 1.9. NBC averaged a 3.1 for the night.
ABC won the night in viewership with Dancing with the Stars (16 million, 2.6), though it hit a new low in the demo for a performance show. Castle (12.5 million, 2.5) was up two-tenths for its emotional Season 4 finale.
