‘America’s Got Talent’ Ratings Steady As NBC Easily Wins Slow Night


Few things can render Simon Cowell almost speechless but Christian Guardino almost did that last night on America’s Got Talent (2.5/10). The NBC competition series topped a pretty sleepy Tuesday but the audition of the once blind teen and his version of the Jackson 5’s “Who’s Lovin You” owned the show – admittedly flabbergasting Cowell and earning a standing ovation from the other judges and the audience.

With Fox entirely in encores, ABC just having Downward Dog (0.7/3) and CBS’ only original of the night being 48 Hours: NCIS (0.4/2), the night was clearly going to belong to the Comcast owned net. And, with AGT down a tenth from its later upward adjusted fast affiliate ratings and World Of Dance (1.9/8) even with last week, it did as NBC hustled up a 2.3/9 among the 18-49s and 10.99 million viewers.

As for those other new shows on last night, the Disney owned net’s comedy was also the same as its June 6 broadcast and the season finale of 48 Hours: NCIS was down 20% in the key demo from last week.

Down was not the direction for the CW’s iZombie (0.3/1), at least not right now.  The series saw a rise of 50% from its final numbers of last week – which were adjusted down two tenths from fast affiliate results.
