NBC has tied for the weeklong ratings victory in primetime results for April 11-17 in the key demographic of adults 18-49, as well as adults 25-54, according to "live plus same day" viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research.

Monday and Tuesday telecasts of "The Voice" tied for the #2 show of the week among primetime programs on the Big 4 networks in adults 18-49 and they were joined in the Nielsen Top 25 by Sunday's "Little Big Shots" (tied for #9), Wednesday's special "Voice" (tied for #9), Tuesday's "Game of Silence" preview (tied for #20), Monday's "Blindspot" (tied for #20) and Thursday's "The Blacklist" (tied for #20).

In total viewers, NBC delivered three of the week's five most-watched primetime shows on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox, with Tuesday's "Voice" (#2), "Little Big Shots" (#3) and Monday's "Voice" (#5).

"Little Big Shots" also ranked #2 for the week on the Big 4 in kids 2-11 and tied for #2 in teens 12-17.

NBC grew versus the same week last year by +9% in adults 18-49 (with a 1.2 rating vs. a 1.1), +6% in adults 25-54 (1.7 vs. 1.6) and +13% in total viewers (5.7 million vs. 5.0 million).
