-Ratings Breakdown:
It was all about NBC last night thanks to summer’s top-rated established series, “America’s Got Talent” (8.4 rating/15 share in the household overnights from 8-10 p.m.) and the season-finale of summer’s top-rated new series, “World of Dance” (5.3/10 at 10 p.m.). On the opposite end was recently introduced ABC drama “Somewhere Between,” which plummeted to a series-low 1.1/ 2 (#3) in the 10 p.m. hour, which trailed an encore telecast of CBS’ “NCIS: New Orleans” (#2: 3.4/ 6) by 68 percent.

Elsewhere, the remainder of the evening was in all repeats. Keep in mind, however, that the start of the 2017-18 TV season is now only 40 days away!
