Sing-off: NBC's The Voice signed off Tuesday with 14.1 million viewers, as its third-season finale ranked as the biggest yet, 18% above last spring's. Thursday's finish for Fox's X Factor drew 9.7 million, down 23% from last fall. But both shows had fewer viewers on average this season than last.

Series sign-offs: MTV's Jersey Shore ended its inglorious run quietly Thursday with 3.1 million viewers, little more than a third of its peak audience in January 2011. Discovery's American Chopper drove off with 2 million viewers for Monday's final episode, as CW's Gossip Girl identified its title culprit (Dan, a boy) for 1.5 million, its biggest turnout since April 2011.

Isn't that special? NBC's Miss Universe Pageant climbed to a modest 6.1 million viewers Wednesday from last year's 5.3 million, when it aired in mid-September. ABC's CMA Country Christmas notched 7.2 million Thursday. A preview episode of NBC's midseason sitcom 1600 Penn claimed 6.9 million behind Monday's performance finale of The Voice (13.4 million). The season finale of A&E's Storage Wars stowed 3.6 million Tuesday, while USA's Burn Notice wrapped its season with 3.8 million Thursday.
