Last week, we saw NBC's The Voice make a promising leap forward in ratings. But last night, The Voice, as well as a score of other shows, dipped in ratings.

The third episode of The Voice was down 19% from last week, with 10.41 million viewers. It's typical to see shows dive a bit in ratings after the first few episodes, but let's hope this trend doesn't continue. I expect the ratings for The Voice to fluctuate quite a bit as viewers come and go during its first run, but even down 19%, the show is performing well. Heck, it's already garnered enough attention to warrant a bit of a public rivalry with American Idol. We'll see how it fares in the coming weeks.

Also down this week was NBC's The Biggest Loser, which dipped 10%, with 8 million viewers. It might be the show's plodding two-hour runtime that's turning some viewers away, especially with only five competitors left. We'll see how the show does with its final four next week.

Even FOX's Glee drooped a little this week. It was down 3%, with 9.46 million viewers. And CBS's NCIS and NCIS Los Angeles continued to dwindle this week. NCIS was down 5% to a season low, with 17.74 million viewers. And Los Angeles dropped 3%, with 15.02 million viewers. Even with these drops, though, there's no doubt that CBS rules Tuesday nights with its procedurals.

But not everyone was down this week! ABC's Dancing with the Stars results show recovered slightly from last week, up 7%, with 17.53 million viewers.
