NBC’s back-to-back talent shows helped the peacock to take Tuesday in adults 18-49 (3.1 rating/10 share) and viewers (10.9 million), despite their rather unremarkable results.
The Voice was down 6% percent in the demo (3.0/11) to earn its lowest-rated Tuesday results show ever, while the premiere of America’s Got Talent earned a 3.1/9, down 16% from last year’s start (when it had the advantage of bowing mid-May with a 3.7/10). Last night was also AGT’s lowest-rated season premiere ever.
But hey! It actually built on The Voice’s lead-in and was the most-watched show of the night with 11.1 million! So there’s that.
Fox was second for the night in the demo (1.6/5) thanks to its two-hour block of So You Think You Can Dance. ABC tied CBS for third in the demo (.9/3) despite having an original episode of Extreme Weight Loss (1.0/3) at 9. CBS aired back to back repeats of NCIS and NCIS: LA followed by week two of the new series Brooklyn D.A. (.8/2, down 20% from the premiere).
