B'casters score with originals


All of the broadcasters airing originals Wednesday night walked away with something to brag about.

NBC won the night with a two-hour "America's Got Talent" (12.2 million viewers and 3.1 rating/9 share in the key adults 18-49 demographic), according to Nielsen. It was the network's best Wednesday rating this season.

Fox's "Bones" (9.8 million, 3.3/10) was the highest-rated program of the night and climbed from last week.

And the CW's "America's Next Top Model" (4.3 million, 2.1/6) continued to grow in its third week, up 5% in the demo.

Fox's comedies sank in their second go-round, however. " 'Til Death" (4.9 million, 1.9/5) and the new "Do Not Disturb" (3.9 million, 1.5/4) dropped about 17% each from last week's premieres.

NBC topped the night with "Talent" and a repeat, followed by Fox, CBS and ABC (both of which aired repeats). The CW aired "Top Model" and a repeat. (partialdiff)
