Fox wins ratings race with food

NBC's 'Talent' wins night, but loses rating

Fox won the ratings race Tuesday night with consistency from its food-oriented reality skeins: ”Hell’s Kitchen” and ”MasterChef.”

NBC, however, had the highest-rated program, a two-hour ”America’s Got Talent” that drew a 2.9 rating/8 share in the 18-49 demo, with 11.1 million viewers overall. That’s slightly down from a week ago and the lowest Tuesday rating this summer.

”Hell’s Kitchen” (2.7/9, 6.3m) and ”MasterChef” (2.5/7 and an all-time high of 6m) were flat from last week and good enough for the network to take the night. NBC might have proven victorious if not for a shabby turnout for ”It’s Worth What?” (1.1/4, 4.4m) in the 8 p.m. slot.

ABC offered nothing but reality as well and saw slightly depressed numbers for both ”Wipeout” (1.9/6, 6.1m) and ”Take the Money and Run” (1.8/5, 4.6m). Alphabet is getting no traction at all for 10 p.m. entry ”Combat Hospital” (0.9/3, 3.3m).

CBS stuck with its summer lineup of procedural repeats, looking to earn increased profits from previously produced telecasts. Best for the Eye was ”NCIS” at 8 o’clock (1.6/5, 10.2m), followed by spinoff ”NCIS: Los Angeles” (1.4/4, 8m) and ”The Mentalist” (1.1/3, 6.2m).

Trailing the pack was the CW with reruns of ”90210” (0.3/1, 761,000) and ”Shedding for the Wedding” (0.3/1, 570,000).

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: Fox, 2.6/8; NBC, 2.3/7; ABC, 1.5/4; CBS, 1.4/4; Univision, 1.2/3; CW, 0.3/1.

In total viewers: NBC, 8.9 million; CBS, 8.1 million; Fox, 6.2 million; ABC, 4.7 million; Univision, 2.9 million; CW, 665,000.
