TV Ratings: 'Talent' Pummels All, 'Downward Dog' Signs Off
America's Got Talent and World of Dance continue to dominate anything Tuesday can throw at them.
Nielsen's delayed Tuesday returns have the NBC duo yet again unchallenged in the key demo. America's Got Talent continues to sustain much of its premiere numbers, averaging a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49 and scoring 12.1 million viewers. Neighboring Dance earned a 1.9 rating in the demo and 7.7 million viewers.
Talent held its demo performance against new competition from ABC's Bachelorette. A special Tuesday effort of the dating show fell from the previous night's season low, coming in at just a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49. The nice lead-in did nothing to aid Downward Dog's final two episodes — on ABC, at least — which came in with 0.5 and 0.4 ratings in the key demo.
The only other new effort came from The CW. The network aired the season finale of iZombie, which pulled a 0.3 rating among adults 18-49.
