Tuesday TV Ratings 5/23/23: The Voice Ticks Up for Blake Shelton’s Final Episode, Don’t Forget the Lyrics Builds on Abysmal Beat Shazam Premiere, FBI Shows End Down (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Airing after a clip show (0.34) of itself, NBC's 'The Voice' (0.49, +0.01) inched up for its final episode with judge Blake Shelton. When compared to its Monday night's telecast (0.48), the series improved by a single hundredth. The season finale of the singing-competition series placed second overall in the Adults 18-49 demographic, falling short of a rising edition of ABC's 'Jeopardy! Masters' (0.57, +0.03). 'Jeopardy!' grew by three-hundredths and was the highest-rated broadcast of the night but failed to keep the lead-out program afloat yet again. 9 p.m. occupant 'Judge Steve Harvey' (0.25, -0.02) only retained 44% of its 'Jeopardy!' lead-in and dipped to its lowest rating to date. In the 10 p.m. hour, a rerun of 'Celebrity Family Feud' (0.23) was able to slow the slide from there. CBS's 'FBI' (0.42, -0.03), 'FBI: International' (0.33, -0.07), and 'FBI: Most Wanted' (0.33, -0.04) all dealt with noticeable declines on finale night. Fox got a head-start on summer programming, but the results were far from encouraging. 'Beat Shazam' (0.22) returned with a new series low for its first episode with new host Nick Cannon. At 9, 'Don't Forget the Lyrics!' (0.24) did its best to build on its lead-in but did not get very far. At the very least, the game show revival managed to avoid "new low" territory. In CW land, 'Superman & Lois' (0.08, -0.03) and 'Gotham Knights' (0.05, -0.03) shed three-hundredths apiece.  

Finals Update: 'Jeopardy! Masters' (+0.1) adjusted up.
