On the Peacock Network, the return of ‘America’s Got Talent’ on NBC at 8P was off and running with 11.91 million viewers and a dominant 7.4 rating/12 share. It peaked at the 9P half-hour with a 7.8/12. Comparably, this was up 7% from its year-ago season-opener (6.9/11 on Tuesday, June 4, 2013, which led out of “The Voice”). And that translated into 11.22 million viewers based on the Live Plus Same Day data. Leading out of ‘America’s Got Talent’ at 10P was the series-premiere of scripted drama ‘The Night Shift’ which won the time period with 7.78 million viewers and a 4.8/8. That was equal to the most recent airing of regularly scheduled time period occupant ‘Chicago Fire’ which had a 4.7/8 on May 13.
The Tiffany Network continued the evening with reruns, first at 8P with ‘NCIS’ which drew 9.28 million viewers and a 6.4/11 and then at 9P, an exceptional episode of ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ which drew 7.84 million viewers and a 5.3/8. This was one of the great episodes of last year and is a Must See TV ON DEMAND program to watch as Callen fights all forms of ‘Who Am I’ struggles as he hopes to find a thread of his past. And the end is one of the best ever. At 10P, ‘Person of Interest’, in an episode with the original cast drew 5.32 million viewers and a 3.7/6. Let’s hope CBS does not go through the entire summer with reruns.
The Alphabet Network pulled out another season-premiere at at 8P, ‘Extreme Weight Loss’ could not compete with NBC’s programming with 3.87 million viewers and a 2.7/4. That was down from year-ago season-opener (3.2/5 on 5/28/13) by 16%. At 10P, ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’ finished at a distant third-place with 3.74 million viewers and a 2.5/4.
La cadena hispana superior began the evening at 8P with ‘De Que Te Quiero, Te Quiero’ and drew a 0.9 A18-49 rating, good for #4 in the time slot. Then at 9P, ‘Lo Que La Vida Me Robo’ pulled a 1.4 A18-49 rating which finished tied for #2 in its time slot. At 10P, ‘Que Pobres Tan Ricos’ finished the evening with 1.0 A18-49.
The Animal Network of Broadcast meanwhile simply could not compete with its summer programming as at 8P ‘Riot’ finished with 1.39 million viewers and a 1.2/2. Then at 9P the embarrassing ‘I Wanna Marry Harry’ drew 1.2 million viewers and a 1.0/2, which slipped by 37% from last week. Arguably it can be stated, viewers just do not really want to marry Harry! FOX was lucky The CW threw up reruns against it.
The CW aired reruns at 8P of ‘The Originals’ drew 950,000 viewers and a 0.6/1 and at 9P, ‘Supernatural’ which drew 1.06 million viewers and a 0.7/1, just 140,000 viewers behind ‘Harry’. A new episode might have dethroned the ‘spare’.
At 8P on Telemundo, ‘La Impostora’ came in with a 0.5 A18-49 rating. At 9P, ‘En Otra Pie’ did the same, 0.5 A18-49. At 10P, the network got a lift on the second night of ‘El Señor de los Cielos’ which delivered a 0.8 A18-49. Looks like a hit.
At 1135P, a rerun of NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ finished #1 with a 2.4/6. A rerun of ‘David Letterman’ on CBS drew 1.9/5. ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ on ABC drew 1.8/5. A rerun of ‘Seth Meyers’ on NBC tied an original installment of departing ‘Craig Ferguson’ on CBS and ‘Nightline’ on ABC (each with a 1.1/ 4 from 12:30A. A rerun of ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’ on NBC closed the evening with a 0.6/ 3 at 130A.
NBC was #1 on Monday with 10.538 million viewers and a 6.6 rating and an 11 share of the available audience. CBS came in #2 with an all rerun evening drawing 7.580 million viewers and a 5.1/8. ABC finished #3 on Tuesday with 3.826 million viewers and a 2.7/4. Univision finished #4 with 2.925 million viewers and a 1.5/3. Telemundo had a great night finishing #5 as it jumped ahead of both FOX & The CW with 1.4 million viewers and a 0.8/1. FOX was next with 1.294 million viewers and a 1.1/2. The CW drew 1.005 million viewers and a 0.7/1.
