Day 2 of the Gordon Ramsay premiere showcase on Fox had ups and downs. Hell’s Kitchen (2.1/7) was down 16% from last year’s second-night premiere, which at 9 PM MasterChef (2.1/6) was up 11% from last year’s second-day premiere. Over on NBC, America’s Got Talent (3.4/11) was down 8% from last week but still the biggest draw of the night with 12.2 million viewers. The two-hour season premiere of Love In The Wild (1.6/4) at 9 PM was also down, with the Jenny McCarthy-hosted reality show falling 27% from its debut last year. Still, NBC won the night in adults 18-49 and total viewers.
Despite a weekend of coverage from the UK and performances by Paul McCartney, Elton John, Shirley Bassey and more, ABC’s 20/20 Special Edition: Concert For The Queen: A Diamond Jubilee Celebration With Katie Couric (1.3/4) didn’t hit any high notes. The 9 PM Tuesday airing of Monday’s concert equaled last week’s The Jubilee Queen special, also hosted by Couric. ABC aired repeats of Last Man Standing at 8 PM (0.8/3) and 8:30 PM (0.8/3)
CBS ran a night of repeats.
