TV Ratings: NBC Wins Tuesday With 'Talent' and 'Dance'
Three weeks in, the summer pairing of America's Got Talent and World of Dance appear to be pretty untouchable for NBC.
The latest episode saw America's Got Talent still pulling within two-tenths of a ratings point of its robust premiere haul in the key demo. It clocked in with a 2.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 12.4 million viewers, again making it the best non-sports performer seen on broadcast in weeks.
After a slight spill in its second outing, World of Dance didn't budge for episode three. It averaged a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 and 8.1 million viewers at 10 p.m.
Competing programs on the broadcast networks were scant, but ABC saw another consistent (if modest) performance from Downward Dog. The comedy opened the night with another 0.7 rating among adults 18-49, beating back repeats, and drawing nearly 3.7 million viewers.
Elsewhere, CBS put out another 48 Hours: NCIS (0.4 adults) and the CW had a new iZombie (0.3 adults). Both shows were steady with the previous week.
