America's Got Talent continues to dominate summer TV. NBC's off-season darling, the highest-rated non-sports programming this month, has lost zero steam from its recent premiere.

Four weeks in, America's Got Talent logged another 2.6 rating among adults 18-49 and 12.5 million viewers. That's virtually the same haul as its May 30 season premiere, numbers that haven't wavered over subsequent episodes. In the key demo, this latest episode is pacing 13 percent higher than the same week last summer. And that's just the live haul. The most recent live-plus-three lifts put Talent at a 3.3 rating among adults 18-49.

Lead-out World of Dance continues to perform at 10 p.m. Tuesday's episode averaged a steady 1.8 rating in the key demo and 7.7 million viewers. Premiere-to-date, World of Dance is enjoying the best summer freshman season since Under the Dome broke out for CBS in 2013.

Both shows easily brought NBC a Tuesday win — though the competition was slim. ABC offered up another episode of Downward Dog, with a steady 0.6 rating in the key demo, and the CW posted another 0.3 demo rating with a new iZombie.
