Tuesday Overnights: Another Strong Outing for ‘America’s Got Talent’ on NBC

Business As Usual on This Late Summer Tuesday

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

Household Rating/Share
NBC: 4.9/ 9, CBS: 3.2/ 6, ABC: 2.5/ 5, Fox: 1.2/ 2, CW: 0.4/ 1

Percent Change From Year-Ago Evening:
Fox: no change, CBS: – 3, NBC: – 9, ABC: -11, CW: -20

Ratings Breakdown:
If it is Tuesday in the summer, it is “America’s Got Talent” on NBC. And that puts the Peacock net well above the competition, with the latest two-hour installment of the talent competition at a 6.2 rating/11 share in the household overnights from 8-10 p.m. ET. Comparably, that bested “Bachelor in Paradise” on ABC (3.2/ 6) by a hefty 94 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” (6.0/11) by 60 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 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 “Mysteries Decoded” (#5: 0.4/ 1 at 9 p.m.). And the remainder of the evening were repeat telecasts as follows:
