Things picked up for The Voice as it neared its belated season’s end.  

Daily Comparison 2013 Mon Jun 17

NBC:  THE VOICE was up 0.2 in preliminary numbers to 3.5 with its final Monday telecast of the season, and may rise more when final ratings come in this afternoon.  THE WINNER IS… was also up 0.2 to 2.0, although it may go in the other direction when official numbers are released. 

ABC:  THE BACHELORETTE and MISTRESSES were both down 0.2 from last week to 1.6 and 1.2 respectively.  (Bachelorette was down a big 0.7 from the same week last year, although that faced slightly softer competition on NBC.)

FOX:  Another dismal Monday, as THE GOODWIN GAMES and an off-FX ANGER MANAGEMENT both slid to 0.5s (down 0.1 and 0.2 from last week), each of them lower below the 8PM rerun of Raising Hope.

CBS:  Reruns, all at 0.9-1.0.

CW:  OH SIT was at 0.3, and then a rerun CARRIE DIARIES was barely watched with an 0.1.

Tonight’s primetime features an interesting battle between NBA FINALS GAME 6 and the season finale of The Voice.  Basketball should win handily, but both networks will have an audience.  FOX airs a new SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, and CBS is in reruns.
