The rest of the broadcast dial surrendered another Tuesday to NBC last night as America’s Got Talent and World of Dance proved insurmountable in the ratings.

So great was NBC’s advantage on Tuesday night, its average primetime rating among adults 18-49 matched the rest of the broadcast networks — CBS, ABC, Fox and The CW — combined. And all of them aired at least one original offering.

As for America’s Got Talent, it ticked down to a 2.0 rating among adults 18-49 and 11.1 million viewers, leading the rest of the night’s TV lineup. World of Dance, again earning a 1.4 rating in the key demo, dominated at 10 p.m.

Fox’s Beat Shazam was the closest competitor, though it only managed a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49. Love Connection, also flat week-to-week, gave the network a 0.5 rating in the key demo.

CBS and ABC’s original offerings only came during the 10 p.m. hour. That’s where both CBS' 48 Hours: NCIS and ABC's The Last Defense ticked down from the previous week for a shared 0.4 rating among adults 18-49.

The only other new effort on the night was The 100 on The CW. The drama mustered a 0.2 rating in the key demo.
