Let me start by saying that all the contestants on Season 13 of American Idol seem like truly lovely people. And also that I'd rather watch the green paint dry on that house in True Detective than sit through another 11 weeks of performances from this crew.
And apparently, I'm not alone. Idol's ratings have (once again) been in steady decline this season and hit an all-time low a couple of weeks ago with the Feb. 20 episode. Granted, the show faced stiff competition early on this year from the Winter Olympics, but its post-Olympics numbers remain languid.

NBC announced its season-finale dates Tuesday, including First Lady Michelle Obama's appearance on Parks and Recreation, and the Season 6 finale of The Voice.

ABC topped Monday with all things Bachelor .
Juan Pablo's two-hour finale averaged 9.6 million viewers and a 3.2 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, up almost a point from last week to hit a season high, but it was down three tenths from last season's closer. The Bachelor: After the Final Rose (11 million, 3.8) was flat with last season's.
On NBC, The Voice (13.6 million, 3.7) dropped eight tenths to tie a season low, leading ...

ABC sees dead people big ratings.
After terrible launches for Mind Games and Mixology, the network saw huge numbers Sunday for the series premiere of Resurrection, which drew 13.3 million viewers and a 3.6 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, making it the best midseason drama debut since Smash. It also posted ABC's biggest audience in the slot since January 2010 and the ...

It's no secret there's been a ton of negativity surrounding this season of The Bachelor. But while fans, celebrity and otherwise, have shared their distaste for Season 18 star Juan Pablo, it's also been one of the most talked-about seasons in the series' 14-year history. Which begs the question: Does a detested Bachelor actually make for a more successful season?

Almost Human closed out on low note.
The Fox series wrapped up its freshman run Monday to a series low 5.6 million and a 1.5 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. The Following (5.1 million, 1.7) followed, inching up a tenth from its series low last week.
NBC won the night with The Voice (15.6 million, 4.5) and The Blacklist (11.1 million, 2.7), which dropped
ABC's Tuesdays-at-10 woes continue.
Mind Games premiered Tuesday to a 3.6 million viewers and a 1.1 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, on par with Lucky 7's and Killer Women's equally dismal debuts in the slot this season. The drama followed a special Tuesday episode of The Bachelor(8.1 million, 2.4), which was even with its Monday numbers.

Usher has already racked up an impressive team of contestants just two days into The Voice's blind auditions. But the R&B superstar insists there is one genre of music he'll never be able to win over.
"They're never going to accept me in Nashville. Ever," Usher says in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video.

Mark Burnett should be at least a little panicked. Just two days after CeeLo Green announced he would not be returning to The Voice, news broke that fellow original coach Christina Aguilera is expecting her second child, leaving the fate of not one, but two red chairs possibly empty on the hit NBC singing show.
But at a press screening Monday for the two-night Season 6 premiere, which continues Tuesday at 8/7c on NBC, the executive producer did not ...

After the Games, the deluge. Now that Sochi's Closing Ceremony is but a glittery, shimmering memory, time for TV to get back to normal — which means everything new is finally new again. And for NBC, it signifies another big week, as it tries to keep the momentum going, using a new season of The Voice (8/7c) and its irresistible Blind Auditions to fuel ratings on Mondays and Tuesdays, with a visceral assist from The Blacklist (10/9c). Red's latest target: a woman from his shadowy past played by Jennifer Ehle, who'll always be my favorite Elizabeth Bennet (from the 1995 Pride and Prejudice).
