TV Ratings: ‘America’s Got Talent’ Ends Season on a High, ‘Blindspot’ Gets Solid Start

“America’s Got Talent” closed out its most-watched season in five years on a high note, notching a 2.8 in adults 18-49 and 14 million viewers. That rating makes it the top “AGT” finale since 2011. The closer provided a strong lead-in for “Blindspot,” which was inevitably down from last year’s heavily promoted series premiere, but up 24% from its Season 1 finale in total viewers, where it earned 7.3 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in the demo at 10 p.m.

Elsewhere, CBS’ “Big Brother” earned a 1.7 in the adults 18-49 demographic and 6 million viewers at 8 p.m., while Fox’s two-hour “Masterchef” season finale scored a 1.4 rating and 4.3 million viewers. The rest of the night’s lineup was in repeats, aside from The CW’s “Penn & Teller: Fool Us,” which nabbed a 0.4 rating and 1.4 million viewers at 8 p.m., and a new “Whose Line Is It Anyway,” which posted a 0.3 rating and 0.9 million viewers.
