It was a night of finales and an unprecedented winnowing on Tuesday night, as "Dancing With the Stars" and "The Voice" declared winners, and the men of "The Bachelorette" voted off one of this season's two potential stars.

Singer-actress Rumer Willis -- daughter of film stars Bruce Willis and Demi Moore -- and her professional partner Val Chmerkovskiy claimed the mirrorball trophy on Season 20 of ABC's "DWTS." This is Chmerkovskiy's first win.

The runners-up were Riker Lynch, a singer-songwriter with the band R5 and a former recurring guest on "Glee," and pro partner Allison Holker. In third place was former U.S. Army Sgt. Noah Galloway -- who lost parts of two limbs during combat in the Iraq War in 2005 and went on to become a motivational speaker and model -- and pro partner Sharna Burgess.

The Season 8 winner of NBC's singing competition "The Voice" was 16-year-old Sawyer Fredericks, coached by Pharrell Williams. Meghan Linsey of Blake Shelton's team was runner-up, followed by Joshua Davis of Adam Levine's team in third place and Koryn Hawthorne of Williams' team fourth.

On the two-night Season 11 premiere of ABC's "The Bachelorette" -- which for the first time debuted with two women, allowing the male suitors to choose between them -- spin-class instructor Kaitlyn Bristowe won out over waitress and former model Britt Nilsson. This prompted bachelor Brady Toops to quit the show, feeling he and Nilsson had chemistry, while Bristowe cut four of the 24 remaining men: Automobile-shipper Bradley; real estate agent David; law student and exotic dancer Josh Seiter; and Shawn E., an "amateur sex coach."
