The America’s Got Talent quarterfinals on Tuesday gave NBC the top primetime top with the most-watched and highest-rated program of the night. The two-hour episode earned an average 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.55 million viewers, per Nielsen Live+Same Day fast affiliates.

AGT was steady ratingswise from last week but saw a tiny dip in viewers. The talent competition show peaked in its first hour, which drew 6.60M viewers.

The AGT quarterfinals were up against ABC’s two-hour offering of Bachelor In Paradise. Monday’s episode was up from the previous week, but Tuesday’s Bachelor In Paradise faltered a bit (0.7, 2.65M). Lance Bass was the latest guest host to come to paradise, following Wells Adams and David Spade, who stepped in amid Chris Harrison’s departure from the series. Upcoming guest hosts are Lil Jon and Tituss Burgess.

Fox peaked in adults 18-49 with a new Lego Masters (0.5.1.44M). The Fantasy Island reboot showed signs of stabilizing in Week 3, matching its Week 2 L+SD demo delivery (0.3 rating), while slipping further to a new viewership low (1.56M). The series premiered to a 0.4 in 18-49 and 1.97M viewers.

Tuesday on CBS consisted of reruns of NCIS, FBI and FBI: Most Wanted. The network’s last program, FBI: Most Wanted, was the most-watched title in its timeslot.

Strong woman heroes were at the center of CW’s Tuesday, but neither DC’s Stargirl (0.1, 0.62M) nor Supergirl (0.1, .57M) performed well enough to outdo the other networks.

Later in the evening, ABC and NBC duked it out with a new episode of The Ultimate Surfer and College Bowl, respectively. While both of the competition programs raked in a 0.4 rating, College Bowl won more viewers.
