Ratings: ‘America’s Got Talent’ Up, ‘Zoo’ Down Vs. MLB All-Star Game

Fox won Tuesday’s primetime ratings race behind the Major League Baseball All-Star game, which appeared to be down a little from last year, while NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” held up well and remained the night’s top-rated series. At CBS, rookie drama “Zoo” slipped from last week’s solid performance.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, Fox’s coverage of baseball’s All-Star Game from Cincinnati averaged a 2.8 rating/10 share in adults 18-49 and 10.2 million viewers overall on the net’s stations form 8 to 11 p.m., with the event’s final averages likely to edge up in the nationals. Last year’s game finished with a 3.2/11 in the demo and 11.34 million viewers overall — the third straight year the Midsummer Classic has been at a 3.2.

Elsewhere, “America’s Got Talent” (2.4/9 in 18-49, 10.6 million viewers overall) rose a tenth week to week despite the stronger Fox competition and was up 20% from its performance against the MLB All-Star Game a year ago (2.0). The  competition series may have been boosted by an appearance by Neil Patrick Harris as a judge; he will return to Tuesdays on NBC in the fall as host of new variety series “Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris.”

The Jane Lynch-hosted “Hollywood Game Night” had another good outing at 10 p.m. (1.5/5 in 18-49, 5.3 million viewers overall), matching its week-earlier premiere and finishing a solid second to baseball. Last night’s celebrity guests included Will Arnett, Katharine McPhee and Debra Messing.

CBS drama “Zoo” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 6.5 million viewers overall) was down 0.2 from the 1.2 it did in its first two weeks; this should still make it one of the week’s top two or three scripted ad-supported series in 18-49. Last week’s episode grew in Live+3 by 44% in 18-49 (to 1.7) and 29% in total viewers (to 9.87 million).

“Zoo” was sandwiched by repeats of “NCIS” (0.7/3 in 18-49, 6.8 million viewers overall) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (0.7/2 in 18-49, 5.7 million viewers overall).

At ABC, encores of “Fresh Off the Boat” (0.7/3 in 18-49, 2.8 million viewers overall) and “Black-ish” (0.7/2 in 18-49, 2.5 million viewers overall) were followed by “Extreme Weight Loss” (0.8/3 in 18-49, 2.7 million viewers overall), which had its best performance in over a month. Week-to-week, “Weight Loss” shot up 33% in 18-49 rating (0.76 vs. 0.57).

CW aired repeats of “The Flash” (0.4/1 in 18-49, 1.3 million viewers overall) and “iZombie” (0.3/1 in 18-49, 0.9 million viewers overall).

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: Fox, 2.8/10; NBC, 2.1/7; CBS and Univision, 0.8/3; ABC, 0.7/3; Telemundo, 0.6/2; CW, 0.3/1.

In total viewers: Fox, 10.2 million; NBC, 8.8 million; CBS, 6.3 million; ABC, 2.7 million; Univision, 1.9 million; Telemundo, 1.4 million; CW, 1.1 million.
