TV Ratings: 'Talent' and 'Weight Loss' Take Hits

NBC posts an easy Tuesday win with "AGT" and "Food Fighters"

Is it fall yet? There wasn't much to speak of on the broadcast front on Tuesday night. America's Got Talent notched its regular victory — albeit off 10 percent from last week's episode.

The NBC series averaged a 1.9 rating with adults 18-49 following a steady episode of Food Fighters (1.1 adults).

ABC was the only other network to air originals, offering up a new Extreme Weight Loss. The series took its sharpest drop this season, down three-tenths of a point to a 0.9 rating in the key demo.

The latest 20/20 special also paled in comparison to last Tuesday's tribute to Robin Williams. It averaged a 0.8 rating with adults under 50.
