Ratings Breakdown:
It was all about “America’s Got Talent” on NBC, as usual, with this edition of the perennial summer competition at a 6.9 rating/12 share in households from 8-10 p.m. Comparably, that more than doubled competing “Bachelor in Paradise” on ABC (#3: 3.0/ 5). Fox’s combination of game shows “Beat Shazam!” (#4: 1.6/ 3 at 8 p.m.) and “Love Connection” (#4: 1.2/ 2 at 9 p.m.) could not compete.

Despite the ample lead-in support, NBC reality/competition “Making It,” hosted by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, slipped to a second-place 2.4/ 5 in the 10 p.m. hour, which trailed an encore telecast of “NCIS: New Orleans” on CBS (3.2/ 6) by 25 percent. Third in the time period was recently introduced ABC reality competition “The Castaways” at a 1.9/ 4.

The remainder of the evening was all repeats.
