NBC’s ‘Night Shift’ Solid, ABC’s ‘Extreme Weight Loss’ Gains

NBC has won another Tuesday in key demos behind an “America’s Got Talent” repeat and an original episode of drama “The Night Shift,” which continues to rate as the summer’s top new series.

Of note on Tuesday afternoon, the Germany-Brazil soccer match in the FIFA World Cup averaged a 4.1 overnight household rating on ESPN, according to Nielsen, the best ever for a semifinal game on the network. Four years ago, the comparable contest (Uruguay vs. Netherlands) did a 2.8 rating.

Looking at primetime, “America’s Got Talent” averaged a 1.7 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 and 7.9 million viewers overall from 8 to 10 p.m., making it easily the night’s No. 1 series in the demo, while tying a repeat “NCIS” on CBS as the leader in total viewers. It was followed by “The Night Shift” (1.3/4 in 18-49, 6.4 million viewers overall), which won its hour among the broadcasters and came within a tenth of last week’s demo rating when it enjoyed a much stronger

“The Night Shift,” which wraps its first season next week, is summer’s highest-rated new show in 18-49 and total viewers. It has been renewed for a second season.

It was a pretty quiet night elsewhere, but ABC’s “Extreme Weight Loss” (1.0/4 in 18-49, 3.5 million viewers overall) was able to take advantage of the repeat “Talent” on NBC, rising a tenth from last week (and perhaps two tenths in the nationals). And at 10 p.m., “Celebrity Wife Swap” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 3.2 million viewers overall) matched last week’s season-low delivery.

Univision ranked second among all broadcasters on Tuesday in 18-49, led by 9 p.m. telenovela “Lo Que la Vida Me Robo” (1.4/4 in 18-49, 3.3 million viewers overall).

CBS aired repeats of crime dramas “NCIS” (1.1/4 in 18-49, 7.9 million viewers overall), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (0.9/3 in 18-49, 6.6 million viewers overall) and “Person of Interest” (0.9/3 in 18-49, 5.4 million viewers overall). And Fox went with encores of comedies “Family Guy” (0.7/3 in 18-49, 1.6 million viewers overall), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” at both 8:30 (0.4/1 in 18-49, 1.1 million viewers overall) and 9 (0.4/1 in 18-49, 1.0 million viewers overall) and “The Mindy Project” (0.4/1 in 18-49, 1.0 million viewers overall).

CW aired repeats of “Arrow” (0.3/1 in 18-49, 0.9 million viewers overall) and “Supernatural” (0.3/1 in 18-49, 0.8 million viewers overall).

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: NBC, 1.6/5; Univision, 1.1/4; ABC, 1.0/3; CBS, 0.9/3; Telemundo, 0.7/2; Fox, 0.5/2; CW, 0.3/1.
