New York, NY -- Powered by football and "The Voice," NBC took the ratings crown last week.
But the Nielsen Co. said Thursday that even football couldn't tackle CBS' crime drama "NCIS." It edged out the Seahawks-49ers game to become the week's most-watched show.
In third place was "NCIS: Los Angeles," followed by the season finale of "The Voice."
NBC averaged 8 million viewers in prime time for the week. CBS had 7.5 million viewers, with Fox, ABC and the CW following behind.
NBC's "Nightly News" topped the evening newscasts.
