NBC's new comedy "About A Boy" rose week-to-week in the ratings, even with a diminished showing from its big lead-in, "The Voice." 

According to early numbers from Nielsen, "About A Boy" earned a rating of 1.9 among key 18-to-49-year-old viewers, up 6% from the last episode, marking the second week in a row that the show has grown.

Singing contest "The Voice," Tuesday night's highest-rated show, fell 10% to a 2.7, its lowest ever, not counting specials. "Growing Up Fisher" was flat at a 1.5. NBC was the top network, turning in an average of 1.8 in the 18-49 demographic, where a ratings point equals about 1.3 million viewers.

CBS showed only reruns but was still the most-watched network, averaging 9.4 million viewers, versus NBC's 7.3 million.

On ABC, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." was down 14% to a 1.8 in 18-49, and "Celebrity Wife Swap" lost a tenth of a point from its low premiere. 

Fox's "Glee" was also down a tenth, hitting a 0.9, while "Mind Project" held steady at 1.0. 

Following a low result from "The Originals," CW's "Supernatural" posted much improved numbers, surging 29% to a 0.9 in 18-49 and 37% in total viewership to an audience of 2.2 million.
