Ratings Breakdown:
In season (or series) finale news, “First Responders Live” on Fox concluded with a modest 1.3 rating/2 share in households at 9 p.m. ET. Comparably, this was almost identical to the 1.2/ 2 on the year-ago night with relationship game show “Love Connection.”

On NBC, both “America’s Got Talent” and “Bring the Funny” scored their best overnights since August 6, with “AGT” topping the night at a 6.6 rating/12 share in households from 8-10 p.m. and “Bring the Funny” at a 2.6/ 5 (#2) at 10 p.m. While any show airing out of “AGT” would get a boost, retention of just 41 percent for “Bring the Funny” out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of “AGT” is not a positive.
