NBC won the Wednesday night ratings race, but in a somewhat surprising turn, "America's Got Talent" earned higher ratings than the season finale of "The Voice," according to preliminary numbers.
NBC's "The Voice" at 8 took a 3.5 rating/12 share in the adults 18-49 demographic — a 6 percent uptick from last week's results show, but down 20 percent compared to Tuesday's performance finale — and 10 million total viewers, grabbing the second-highest ratings of the evening. "America's Got Talent" the following hour, up 3 percent from last week's episode, took the night's top honors with a 4.0/12 in the demo and 13 million total viewers. The network topped off the evening with the premiere of the reality series "Love in the Wild" at 10, which received a 2.2/6 in the demo and 6.4 million total viewers.
Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance," from 8-10 p.m., was down 14 percent compared to last week's airing with a 1.9/6 in the demo and 5.3 million total viewers.
ABC ran reruns throughout the evening, with the exception of "Nightline Primetime: Beyond Belief" at 10, which took a 1.2/3 in the demo and 4.1 million total viewers.
CBS ran repeats throughout the evening.
