NBC owned primetime on Tuesday as unscripted comedy “Better Late Than Never” got off to a solid start behind “America’s Got Talent.”

“Better Late Than Never” a travelogue reality series featuring William Shatner, Henry Winkler, George Forman, Terry Bradshaw and comedian Jeff Dye , delivered a 1.6 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 and 7.4 million viewers in the 10 p.m. hour. The two-hour installment of “America’s Got Talent” (2.4/9, 11.1 million viewers) NBC gave the gang a good sendoff.

“Better Late Than Never” trounced ABC’s 20th anniversary retrospective on “The View” (0.4 in 18-49, 2.7 million viewers). The clip show didn’t get much lead-in support from ABC’s 9 p.m. “After Paradise” after-show (0.7/3, 2.8 million) for 8 p.m.’s “Bachelor in Paradise” (1.4, 4.8 million). CBS’ 9 p.m. drama “Zoo” (0.8, 4.9 million), which was bookended by reruns of “NCIS” and “NCIS: New Orleans,” perked up some from the previous week’s airing against Olympics coverage. CW served up a fresh episode of “Mad TV” (0.2, 660,000).

For the night, NBC towered over the competition with an average of 9.8 million viewers, followed by CBS (5.9 million), ABC (3.5 million) and Fox (1.3 million). Adults 18-49: NBC (2.1), CBS (0.8), ABC (0.8) and Fox (0.4).
