TV Ratings: ‘America’s Got Talent’ Beats ‘Bachelorette’ to Top Tuesday

“America’s Got Talent” led NBC to another victory on Tuesday night despite stiff competition from an extra episode of “The Bachelorette.”

“Talent” scored a 2.2 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo, with 10.7 million viewers overall — beating “The Bachelorette” in the demo and by almost 4 million total viewers (the dating competition scored a 2.0 rating and 6.7 million watchers). “Talent” slipped 0.3 in adults 18-49 compared to last week’s premiere, but came close to matching its year-ago rating, where it was down a tenth in the demo but up 5% in total viewers.

Variety show “Maya and Marty” likewise slid from last week’s premiere, notching a 1.2 in adults 18-49 and 4.9 million viewers overall, with the network averaging a 1.9 demo score and 8.7 million viewers to win the night.

ABC was a close second in the demo for the night, averaging 1.8 in adults 18-49 and 6.3 million viewers overall thanks to the week’s second episode of “The Bachelorette” airing on a special night, which earned a 2.0 rating in line with Monday’s episode. The Alphabet’s “20/20” earned a 1.4 rating and 5.6 million viewers with a special on singer Bobby Brown.

CBS came in third for the night with an average of 0.8 in the demo, squeaking past ABC in total viewers with an average of 6.5 million behind reruns of “NCIS” and “NCIS: New Orleans” and a new episode of “Person of Interest,” which was even with last week’s 1.0 demo score and drew 6.4 million viewers.

On Fox, new episodes of “Hotel Hell” (0.7 in adults 18-49, 2.4 million viewers) and “Coupled” (0.5 in the demo, 1.4 million) brought the network to an average 0.6 demo rating and 1.9 million viewers, while The CW kept the lights on with repeats of “The Flash” and “Containment,” giving the network an average 0.4 rating and 1.5 million viewers for the night.
