Ratings: ‘America’s Got Talent,’ ‘I Can Do That’ Power NBC to Tuesday Victory

On a fairly uneventful first Tuesday of June, NBC dominated its rivals behind the night’s top two programs: veteran “America’s Got Talent” and newcomer “I Can Do That. It remained slow going, meanwhile, for the unscripted series on ABC and Fox.

“America’s Got Talent” was easily Tuesday’s top draw among young adults (2.4 rating/9 share in adults 18-49) while also prevailing in total viewers (10.7 million), and compatible lead-out “I Can Do That” (1.5/5 in 18-49, 5.5 million viewers overall) again led all series in its hour. “Talent” was down x% (0.2) from its season premiere of last week, while “I Can Do That” was down 17% (0.3) but continues to look good. “I Can” launched last week as the top-rated summer newcomer in 18-49 in the two years since CBS’ “Under the Dome,” and its week-2 score matches that of drama “The Night Shift” (which had a stronger 2.9 lead-in from “America’s Got Talent”) on the comparable night a year ago.

Elsewhere, Fox produced modest numbers for its unscripted tandem of “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader” (0.7/3 in 18-49, 2.9 million viewers overall) and “Hell’s Kitchen” (1.1/4 in 18-49, 3.3 million viewers overall), with the former down a tenth from its week-earlier premiere and the latter holding steady. CBS fared as well in 18-49 with repeats of its crime shows “NCIS” (0.9/3 in 18-49, 8.6 million viewers overall), “NCIS: New Orleans” (0.9/3 in 18-49, 7.9 million viewers overall) and “48 Hours” (0.9/3 in 18-49, 6.2 million viewers overall).

ABC aired repeats of comedies “Fresh Off the Boat” (0.8/3 in 18-49, 3.2 million viewers overall) and “Black-ish” (0.8/3 in 18-49, 2.6 million viewers overall), followed by a two-hour “Extreme Weight Loss” (0.8/3 in 18-49, 2.4 million viewers overall), which was down a tenth from last week and 33% from last year (1.2).

CW went with an encore “The Flash” (0.4/2 in 18-49, 1.5 million viewers overall) into an original “iZombie” (0.6/2 in 18-49, 1.8 million viewers overall), which matched last week’s score.

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: NBC, 2.1/7; CBS, Fox and Univision, 0.9/3; ABC, 0.8/3; Telemundo, 0.6/2; CW, 0.5/2.

In total viewers: NBC, 9.0 million; CBS, 7.6 million; Fox, 3.1 million; ABC, 2.6 million; Univision, 2.4 million; CW, 1.6 million; Telemundo, 1.4 million.
