TV Ratings: Fox and NBC Share the Demo, 'America's Got Talent' Rises

Reality dominates Monday originals as the Olympic trials continue and ABC's 'Glass House' dips from soft premiere.

Fox and NBC split a victory among adults 18-49 on Monday night with a 2.3 rating in the key demo.

Kicking off the night with more Olympic trials, NBC also pulled in the night's strongest showing among total viewers -- an average 7.8 million. The trials, swimming finals, were up from Sunday's primetime debut and posted a 1.9 adults rating. America's Got Talent was also up a tenth of a point from last week, earning a dominant 3.0 rating among adults 18-49. American Ninja Warrior was flat with a 2.0 in the demo.
