TV Ratings: 'America's Got Talent' Notches Another Victory
America's Got Talent continued to top the ratings as the summer winds down and fall television begins next week.
The NBC competition series (11.4 million total viewers, 2.9 rating in adults 18-49 demographic) was down 6 percent, but was the only broadcast program on Tuesday to notch more than 10 million viewers for its two-hour telecast. Week-to-week, Talent is up 3 percent in viewers. It's Worth What (4.7 million, 1.1) dipped 8 percent and tied its series low at 8 p.m. Even so, the network took home another nightly win, as the night's most-watched and top-rated during primetime; NBC averaged 9.2 million and a 2.3 rating.
CBS (8.4 million, 1.6) ranked second on the night in both categories, even airing repeats of its Tuesday dramas, with ABC (4.4 million, 1.4) following. The finales of Take the Money and Run (3.8 million, 1.5) as well as Combat Hospital (3.2 million, 0.9) were steady with the previous week's telecasts.
Fox placed fourth with encores of Glee and Raising Hope, with the CW in fifth.
