NBC’s ‘America’s Got Talent’ Dips, Still Dominates Tuesday

ABC's 'Extreme Weight Loss' nearly catches Fox's fading veteran 'So You Think You Can Dance'

Two-hour reality contests “America’s Got Talent” on NBC and “So You Think You Can Dance” on Fox were the top performers in young adults Tuesday, even though both were down from last week.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, NBC won the night behind a repeat of “Hollywood Game Night” (1.1/4 in 18-49, 3.8 million viewers overall) and the live “America’s Got Talent” (2.5/7 in 18-49, 9.3 million viewers overall), which was down 7% (0.2) from last week. Still, it was far and away the No. 1 Tuesday broadcast in 18-49 and total viewers.

Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” (1.3/4 in 18-49, 4.0 million viewers overall) was down 13% (0.2) from last week to a season low, edging out ABC’s competing two-hour “Extreme Weight Loss” (1.2/4 in 18-49, 3.9 million viewers overall), which was steady in the demo and hit a six-week high in total viewers. The ABC pulled ahead in 18-49 and total viewers in the 9:30 p.m. half-hour.

CBS aired repeats of “NCIS” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 7.8 million viewers overall), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (0.9/2 in 18-49, 5.8 million viewers overall) and “Person of Interest” (0.8/2 in 18-49, 5.1 million viewers overall). On its new night, “Person” beat out a repeat of ABC’s “Body of Proof” (0.6/2 in 18-49, 2.9 million viewers overall).

CW’s “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” continues to do well by the net’s summer standards, averaging a 0.9/3 in 18-49 and 2.3 million viewers overall at 8 p.m. and then a 0.8/3 in 18-49 and 2.3 million viewers with a second original episode at 8:30. At 9, new reality competition series “Capture” (0.3/1 in 18-49, 1.0 million viewers overall) was down a tick in the demo from its modest bow of last week.

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: NBC, 2.0/6; Fox, 1.3/4; Univision, 1.3/3; ABC, 1.0/3; CBS, 0.9/3; CW, 0.6/2; Telemundo, 0.5/1.

In total viewers: NBC, 7.4 million; CBS, 6.3 million; Fox, 4.0 million; ABC, 3.5 million; Univision, 3.2 million; CW, 1.6 million; Telemundo, 1.2 million.
