Reliable preliminary ratings weren’t available for the Major League Baseball All-Star Game from Kansas City, Mo., but it averaged a 2.9 rating/9 share in adults 18-49 and 9.9 million viewers overall on Fox’s stations from 8 to 11. In the nationals a year ago, the game did a 3.1/10 in the demo and averaged nearly 11 million viewers overall.

NBC’s reality combo of ”America’s Got Talent” (2.7/8 in 18-49, 10.4 million viewers overall) and ”Love in the Wild” (1.3/4 in 18-49, 4.4 million viewers overall) were on the rise after hitting season lows on the eve of July 4 last week. ”Talent” was the night’s No. 1 program in all key female demos and total viewers.

At ABC, ”Wipeout” (1.4/5 in 18-49, 4.6 million viewers overall) placed third among young adults in the 8 o’clock hour with its first Tuesday original of the summer. It was followed by soft numbers for the premiere of improv show ”Trust Us With Your Life,” whose two half-hour episodes averaged a 1.1/3 in 18-49 and 3.2 million viewers overall , a significant decline from what ”101 Ways to Leave a Game Show” opened to on a Tuesday last summer. Closing out the night, ”NY Med” did a bit better in some categories (1.2/3 in 18-49, 5.4 million viewers overall) and at least outperformed the premiere of 10 p.m. Wednesday newbie ”Final Witness,” which opened to a 1.0 demo rating last month.
