TV Ratings: 'Zoo' Steady-ish in Return, Olympic Trials Remain Solid
NBC took another Tuesday with America's Got Talent. The two-hour episode also got a solid lead-in thanks to more Olympic Trials, as the network readies for this summer's Rio ratings bonanza.
At 8 o'clock, U.S. Olympic Trials averaged a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 and 5.8 million viewers, leading into a ever-so-slightly lifted episode of America's Got Talent. It topped the night with a 2.4 rating in the key demo and just over 11 million viewers.
Steady outings of Uncle Buck — back-to-back episodes brought 1.1 ratings among adults 18-49 — and To Tell the Truth (1.0 adults) saw ABC place a distant No. 2 in the key demo.
On CBS, a two-hour return of Zoo was in line with much of its inaugural run last summer, though that 0.9 rating among adults 18-49 was expectedly off from its year-ago series premiere.
Hotel Hell (0.8 adults) and Coupled (0.5 adults) held steady on Fox, as did the ongoing burn-off of now-canceled Containment (0.2 adults) on The CW.
