TV Ratings: 'Talent' Hits a High, 'Paradise' Slips in Night 2
NBC helped compensate for the absence of World of Dance on Tuesday night with a three-year ratings high for America's Got Talent.
The dominant summer series moved up to a 2.8 rating among adults 18-49, its best showing this season in the key demo and tie for a three-year high. Among total viewers, it also topped the night with 13.2 million viewers. New neighbor Hollywood Game Night scored its best demo showing since early 2016, a 1.3 rating, and ranked as one of its most-watched telecast ever (5.4 million viewers.)
The second consecutive night of Bachelor in Paradise was no match for America's Got Talent. It dipped from Monday's premiere high, slipping four-tenths of a point in the key demo to a 1.1 rating. Among total viewers, it was down to 3.8 million. At 10 p.m., Somewhere Between fetched a 0.4 rating among adults 18-49.
