NBC’s ‘The Voice’ limping to finish

NEW YORK – Despite being set up to shine, “The Voice” is limping to its finish.

NBC’s most popular show, approaching its season finale next week, had 11.3 million viewers for its Monday edition last week and 10.9 million on Tuesday. Both were enough to rank them within the Nielsen company’s top six shows for the week. The two editions were below their averages for the season, even more among younger viewers. The show peaked at more than 14 million viewers in mid-April. It’s not as if NBC’s rivals offered elite competition. CBS aired reruns both nights. Fox showed its fading summer franchise “So You Think You Can Dance” and Charlie Sheen’s “Anger Management,” which had 1.7 million viewers on Monday.
