Fox's rain-delayed coverage of the Daytona 500 drove down numbers for most shows Monday night, but NBC still has a lot to sing about.
Despite drops in both viewership and the adults 18-to-49 demo, The Voice (14.8 million viewers, 5.4) was the top show of the night, while Smash ended its two-week skid by rising to 6.9 million and a 2.4 (up 6 and 4 percent).
Is anyone in Cougar Town?
The comedy hit new series lows in its second week back on the air, posting 4.5 million viewers and a 1.7 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demo Tuesday. Those figures are only down 8 and 6 percent from the previous week, but the show still dropped while its lead-in Last Man Standing remained ...
The Voice, Angie Johnson and Cee Lo Green
The Voice is still a smash. Smash? Not so much.
The singing competition show won Monday night for NBC, with 15.7 million viewers and a 5.8 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demo. It dropped a tad from last week's numbers (16.1 million, 5.9), but handily trumped all its competition over its two hours.

Smash lived up to its title, winning the final hour of Monday's prime time, and fresh off The Voice's Season 2 debut after the Super Bowl, it posted formidable numbers, making for a huge night for NBC.
Real Housewives of Atlanta
Bravo is crowing about The Real Housewives of Atlanta scoring a season high, as well as the second-biggest audience in the franchise's history — 3.95 million viewers — on Sunday night. Season 4 of the series so far is up 14 percent in average viewership too.
Alcatraz — which last week made Fox's strongest dramatic series debut in three years — didn't have too many escapees, losing just about 10 percent of its audience in its second week, according to Nielsen overnights.
It also fell just to 3.0 from 3.3 among 18-to-49-year-olds from the two-hour debut — making it the season's third new drama series to post a rating of at least a 3.0 in its second week (after Terra Nova and Once Upon a Time).
