'Maya & Marty'

Tuesday night belonged to NBC, with America's Got Talent more than doubling any other broadcast effort for the night.

The competition averaged a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49, off three-tenths of a point from last week, and a robust 11.5 million viewers. Nothing else even came close, with the No. 2 status for the night going to lead-out Maya & Marty. The variety show, also off from the previous week, pulled a 1.1 rating in the key demo.

ABC's Uncle Buck took a steep drop in its second outing. Without an original lead-in, the summer comedy slipped five-tenths of a point to a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49. To Tell the Truth also was down in its second Tuesday, though by not as much, pulling a 1.0 rating in the key demo as well.

Person of Interest signed off on CBS after five seasons. Keeping in line with its entire abbreviated run this spring/summer, the drama concluded with a steady 1.0 rating among adults 18-49.

Fox also aired originals on Wednesday, with Hotel Hell (0.8 adults) and Coupled (0.5 adults) both putting out new episodes.
