Tuesday Final Nationals: MSNBC Prime Time Shows Achieve Summer-Bests

NBC continued its summer Tuesday dominance on August 15th with the combination of a live edition of “America’s Got Talent” and the time slot premiere of “Hollywood Game Night”. NBC won in total viewers (10.66 million), adults 18-49 (2.3 rating/9 share), adults 18-34 (1.4/7) and adults 25-54 (3.0/10).

After an infamous combative press conference from Donald Trump in the afternoon, MSNBC’s prime time news programs — “All In with Chris Hayes”, “The Rachel Maddow Show”, and “Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” — each rose to their best viewer figures of the summer to-date. Maddow and O’Donnell were cable’s top two most-watched telecasts on Tuesday night.
