NBC and 'America's Got Talent' #1 on Tuesday.

NBC and ‘America’s Got Talent’ #1 on Tuesday.


It was an easy overnight Tuesday victory for NBC. At 8P ‘America’s Got Talent’ was the top rated show of the evening and delivered 11.25 million viewers and a 7.4 rating and 12 share of the available audience. It peaked in the 930P half-hour with a 7.8/13. This benefited the drama at 10P, ‘The Night Shift’ which won the hour with 6.58 million viewers and a 4.1/7.



CBS again had its usual all-rerun evening. Leading off with the world’s most popular drama on television, ‘NCIS’ finished off the Parsa arc in the episode titled ‘Monsters and Men’ as Gibbs offers Bishop a job as a Probationary Agent and she accepts. The team now has a new Probie. The rerun delivered 7.76 million viewers and a 5.2/9 for Black Rock’s top show of the evening. At 9P, ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ with another rerun as ‘Machete’ star, Danny Trejo visited the show, drew 6.32 million viewers and a 4.3/7. At 10P, the rerun of after the revenge of ‘Person of Interest’ delivered 5.2 million viewers and a 3.4/6. Pretty soon, CBS has to quit this rerun game.


At 8P, ‘De Que Te Quiero, Te Quiero’ delivered an 0.9 A18-49 ratings. At 9P, the biggest Hispanic program of the evening, ‘Lo Que La Vida Me Robo’ delivered a 1.3 A18-49 rating, placing it #2 in that demo in this time slot. At 10P, ‘Que Pobres Tan Rico’ battled to a tie with Telemundo’s entry with a 1.0 A18-49 rating to place second in the time slot.


The Alphabet Network Over began the evening at 8P with ‘Extreme Weight Loss’ and it ended up with a series-low of 2.88 million viewers and a 2.2/4. Week-to-week, that was down by 21% (vs. a 2.8/5 on June 10). Next at 10P was a rerun (they must thing they are CBS) of ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’ and it dropped to 2.4 million viewers and a 1.8/3.


The Animal Network of Broadcast did a CBS by airing reruns all evening long. At 8P, a rerun of ‘Family Guy’ drew 1.67 million viewers and a 1.4/2 and was the network’s top show of the evening. Ouch! At 830P, the first of two rerun episodes of ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ drew 1.02 million viewers and a 1.0/2. At 9P, the next rerun delivered 1.17 million viewers and a 1.0/2. At 930P, a rerun of ‘The Mindy Project’ drew 1.11 million friends and family and had a 0.9/1, which stepped in for canceled reality hours ‘Riot’ and ‘I Wanna Marry Harry’. Of course the show were cancelled because it really wasn’t a riot nor did anyone want to marry Harry.

The CW


In episode three news, The Little Network That Couldn’t presented at 8P its docuseries ‘Famous in 12 and it drew 630,000 viewers and a 0.6/1, which was actually 20% (or one-tenth of a rating point) above the 0.5/ 1 one week earlier. At 9P, a rerun of ‘Supernatural’ drew 700,000 viewers and a 0.5/1. Yikes! This is less than whatever is on the Adult Swim network on cable.

Late Night

In late night, NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ from Orlando had a 2.8/7. CBS’ ‘David Letterman’ finished with a 1.9/5 from New York and ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ from Hollywood had a 1.7/4. At 1235A, NBC’s ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’ had 1.3/5 to lead the hour. ABC’s ‘Nightline’ came in with 1.2/4. CBS’ ‘Craig Ferguson’ had a 0.9/ 3. A rerun of NBC’s ‘Last Call With Carson Daly’ closed the night with a 0.7/ 3 at 130A.
