Tuesday Final Nationals: Soft Start to ‘MadTV’ Revival on CW

America’s Got Talent” again put NBC on top on Tuesday night among total viewers (8.46 million) and all key demos.

The CW’s reboot of the former Fox late night sketch comedy show “MadTV” didn’t generate much total audience and only maintained its “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” lead-in among adults 18-49.

The second night of the four-day “2016 Democratic National Convention” featuring former POTUS Bill Clinton drew a combined 24.842 million viewers in the 10 p.m. hour on ABC (3.597 million), CBS (2.947 million), NBC (4.682 million), Fox News Channel (5.28 million), CNN (6.105 million) and MSNBC (3.966 million). This was up 13 percent from the second night of the 2012 DNC (21.95 million on Sep. 4, 2012) but -2 percent from the second night of the 2008 DNC (25.435 million on Aug. 26, 2008) when Hillary Clinton had been the featured prime-time speaker.
