-Ratings Breakdown:
The later edition of “America’s Got Talent” led NBC to another solid Tuesday overnight victory, with a 7.0 rating/12 share in households from 9-11 p.m. Shifting back one hour was a result of the hurricane relief telethon, “Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief,” which aired live in the Tuesday 8 p.m. hour on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and numerous cable networks.

Also original last night was flop ABC drama “Somewhere Between,” which scored a typically modest 1.1/ 2 in the household overnights at 10 p.m. Of note among the repeats was a second airing of the pilot episode of Fox dramedy “The Orville,” which finished fourth in the 9 p.m. hour with a 1.3/ 2. “The Orville” debuts in its regularly scheduled Thursday 9 p.m. time period (out of relocated “Gotham”) on Sept. 28.
