NBC ranked #1 for the night among the Big 4 in adults 18-49, taking six of six half-hours among those nets with "The Voice" and the "State of Affairs" debut.

· "The Voice" matched its comparable telecast from the spring cycle in adult 18-49 rating (3.0/9 on April 28).

· The debut of "State of Affairs" (2.2/7 in 18-49, 8.6 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m. ET) won the hour among ABC, CBS and NBC in adults 18-49, topping "Castle" by +10% (2.2 vs. 2.0, note that ABC carried the NFL in two markets and ratings may be adjusted downward) and "NCIS: LA" by +29% (2.2 vs. 1.7).
