NBC sweeps the final Tuesday of the 2015-26 TV season, with three hours of THE VOICE. The one hour recap, at 8 PM, was the top show in its hour, beating the season finales on ABC and The CW and season premiere on FOX. The two hour season finale followed, posting the nights best numbers in all categories. But, compared to last fall's finale, THE VOICE is down a third in the A18-49 demographic and viewership down by 2.0 million viewers. Year-to-year, THE VOICE dropped 1.0 million viewers a third of the demo audience.

ABC was second on the night with three hours of finales. The two sitcoms showed week-to-week improvements in all categories, including THE REAL O'NEALS adding nearly one million total viewers. The DANCING WITH THE STARS finale was down significantly from the fall finale, losing eight-tenths of a point in the demo and 3.1 million total viewers. Compared to last spring, viewership erosion is the same, but the demo loss was only seven tenths.

CBS third on the night, with another special primetime THE PRICE IS RIGHT - BIG BROTHER edition. It placed 4th in its hour in the A18-34 and A18-49 demographics. A double-shot of PERSON OF INTEREST closed out the night in third place.
