Tuesday Overnights: ‘America’s Got Talent’ Leads NBC to Solid Victory

NBC's 'Bring the Funny' is a Question Mark for Season 2

Tuesday, September 3, 2019

Household Rating/Share
NBC: 5.0/ 9, CBS: 3.1/ 6, ABC: 2.5/ 5, Fox: 1.2/ 2, CW: 0.4/ 1

Percent Change From Year-Ago Evening:
CW: no change, ABC: – 4, CBS: – 6, NBC: – 7, Fox: -14

Ratings Breakdown:
NBC summer juggernaut “America’s Got Talent” remained just that, with a 6.3 rating/11 share in the household overnights from 8-10 p.m. ET. Comparably, that bested already renewed “Bachelor in Paradise” on ABC (3.3/ 6) by a hefty 91 percent.

Tops at 10 p.m., however, was CBS care of an encore telecast of “NCIS: Los Angeles” at a 2.9/ 6 in the household overnights. Second was NBC’s “Bring the Funny” (2.4/ 5), which slipped from the 9:30 p.m. portion of lead-in “America’s Got Talent” (6.2/11) by 61 percent. In other words, chances of a second season of “Bring the Funny” are very questionable.

Elsewhere, an original installment of Fox’s “First Responders Live” scored a typical 1.3/ 2 (#4) in the 9 p.m. hour. The CW featured sci-fi drama “Pandora” (#5: 0.5/ 1 at 8 p.m.). And the remainder of the evening was repeat telecasts as follows:
