TV Ratings: Hurricane Harvey Telethon Pulls 15.7 Million Viewers
America's Got Talent fell in its move to a later time slot Tuesday.
The reality competition moved from 8 to 9 p.m. due to the Hurricane Harvey telethon that aired across the Big Four. Subsequently, the NBC series dipped two-tenths to a 2.3 rating in the adults 18-49 demo.
However, that still helped NBC easily take the night.
At 8 p.m., the Hurricane Harvey telethon pulled a combined 2.7 rating in the demo across NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox. The hourlong special amassed 15.7 million viewers across the Big Four. (The telethon also raised $44 million for hurricane relief.)
The only other new show of the evening, Somewhere Between (0.3 adults) was flat for ABC.
