Big Brother led Wednesday's primetime among adults 18-49, beating America's Got Talent head to head. The NBC show, however, scored a victory among total viewers.

Big Brother earned a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 and 4.07 million viewers for CBS, down slightly from last week's 1.1 and 4.22 million viewers. The two-hour finale of Tough as Nails drew a 0.4 in the demo, also down a little, but a three-week high in total viewers (3.04 million).

At NBC, America's Got Talent matched last week's 0.6 in adults 18-49, but its 5.35 million viewers was about 200,000 more people than watched a week ago. The only other original show on the English-language networks was Coroner on The CW — it was even with last week, drawing a 0.1 in the 18-49 demo and 680,000 viewers.

CBS led the broadcast networks in primetime with a 0.6 average among adults 18-49. Fox, NBC and Univision tied for second at 0.4. ABC and Telemundo each averaged 0.3, and The CW posted a 0.1.

As of Monday, Nielsen is including out-of-home viewing in its final daily ratings, though not in the fast national figures cited above. This post will be updated with any significant changes to the numbers.
