‘America’s Got Talent’ Repeat Tops Tuesday Ratings; ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’ Rises

Even in repeat, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” was the dominant program in the ratings race on Tuesday, a night that also saw a pretty good return to originals for ABC’s “Celebrity Wife Swap,” while the net’s “Extreme Weight Loss” also showed gains.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “America’s Got Talent” averaged a 1.9 rating/7 share in adults 18-49 and 7.9 million viewers overall from 8 to 10 p.m., down 27% from the 2.6 it did in the demo with an original a week earlier but remained the most popular program in all key categories; the repeat likely was the result of the net’s airing a special original episode on Sunday night. Capping the night for NBC was medical drama “The Night Shift” (1.2/4 in 18-49, 6.0 million viewers overall), which delivered its lowest score to date, though it was just one tenth below last week when it enjoyed a stronger, firstrun lead-in from “Talent.”

At ABC, “Extreme Weight Loss” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 3.5 million viewers overall) rose two-tenths above its low of the previous week, and was followed by “Celebrity Wife Swap” (1.3/4 in 18-49, 3.8 million viewers overall), which was the Big Four leader at 10 p.m. in 18-49 with the show’s second best score of the season. In women 18-34, Tuesday’s episode featuring Amanda Beard and Heidi Pratt swapping lives hit a series high (1.3/5).

CBS aired repeats of “NCIS” (1.1/4 in 18-49, 8.7 million viewers overall), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 6.8 million viewers overall) and “Person of Interest” (0.8/2 in 18-49, 4.9 million viewers overall). Fox was all encores as well, with comedies “Family Guy” (0.8/3 in 18-49, 1.9 million viewers overall), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” at both 8:30 (0.6/2 in 18-49, 1.3 million viewers overall) and 9 (0.5/2 in 18-49, 1.2 million viewers overall) and “The Mindy Project” (0.5/1 in 18-49, 1.0 million viewers overall).

And CW remained a non-factor with “Famous in 12” (0.2/1 in 18-49, 0.6 million viewers overall), followed by an encore “Supernatural” (0.3/1 in 18-49, 0.6 million viewers overall).

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: NBC, 1.7/6; ABC and Univision, 1.1/4; CBS, 0.9/3; Fox and Telemundo, 0.6/2; CW, 0.2/1.

In total viewers: NBC, 7.3 million; CBS, 6.8 million; ABC, 3.6 million; Univision, 2.8 million; Telemundo, 1.5 million; Fox, 1.4 million; CW, 0.6 million.
