Wednesday Overnights: Another Win for NBC Thanks to ‘AGT’

CBS' Competing 'BIg Brother' Finishes Second for the Evening

Wednesday, September 4, 2019

Household Rating/Share
NBC: 3.5/ 6, CBS: 2.4/ 4, Fox: 2.2/ 4, ABC: 1.6/ 3, CW: 0.5/ 1

Percent Change From Year-Ago Evening:
CW: no change, CBS: – 4, ABC: – 6, Fox: – 8, NBC: -22

Ratings Breakdown:
NBC led the midweek overnight troops thanks to the live one-hour “America’s Got Talent” results show. “AGT” topped the night with ease at a 5.9 rating/11 share in the household overnights, which was 74 percent above competing “Big Brother” on CBS (#2: 3.2/ 6). Both veteran summer franchises, however, were down from the year-ago evening – “AGT” by 8 percent and “Big Brother” by 16 percent.

With ample lead-in support, NBC’s freshman singing competition “Songland” at 9 p.m. won the hour with a 2.8/ 5. But that was 70 percent below the 8:30 p.m. portion of “AGT” (6.1/11) and may not be worthy of a second season.

On Fox, “BH90210” continues to deteriorate, last night with a 1.7/ 3 in households at 9 p.m. Sorry “Beverly Hills, 90210” fans…I just don’t see a second season of this reboot. Lead-in “Masterchef” scored a third-place 2.8/ 5 in the 8 p.m. hour, which was 65 percent above “BH90210.”

Elsewhere, “Hollywood Game Night” on NBC (#2: 1.7/ 3 at 10 p.m.) remains nothing more than time period filler. “Hypnotize Me” on The CW scored a 0.4/ 1 (#5) at 9 p.m., which was two-tenths of a rating point below lead-in crime drama “Bulletproof” (#5: 0.6/ 1 at 8 p.m.).

  1. I feel like BH90210 will comeback, the ratings are slightly disappointing but it’s still successful for a scripted summer series most of the scripted summer series don’t do well these days I think FOX will take it and keep it especially since it’s a legacy show on the network.

    • I agree that Fox will renew BH90210 that it has done decent in the ratings for the summer it has earned it’s renewal.

      • Yep that’s the thing that people have to understand is that it is doing well for the summer especially in delayed viewing. I heard CBS cleared it internationally pretty well so it will return for sure.
