There was not too much in the way of new programming airing on Tuesday night, but for the shows that did end up being broadcast, the news was mostly positive.
NBC – “America’s Got Talent” emerged yet again as the #1 show on the night with a 3.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic, and this was also a higher rating than the show on Monday night. Will everyone even remember that the show is on Wednesday? That is what we are waiting to find out.
Meanwhile, “Love in the Wild” can at least celebrate retaining its present audience — even if a 1.6 is far from spectacular.
Fox – “Hell’s Kitchen” stayed even at the 2.2 rating that it scored last week on this night, while “MasterChef” rose to ultimately garner the same number. These aren’t monster ratings, but considering the budget and the fact that we are in summer, it should be enough to get both shows renewed for more.
The CW – After looking as though it was making progress, “The Catalina” (which was the only other new non-sports program) ended up taking a fall back to a 0.2 rating — and it couldn’t even muster 600,000 viewers. In some other woeful news, a repeat of “The L.A. Complex” afterwards scored the rare honor of a 0% share with just a 0.1 rating — one of the worst numbers we have ever seen on network television.
The test for Wednesday is going to be seeing what happens when “America’s Got Talent” crosses into “So You Think You Can Dance” territory for the first time. There’s probably some audience overlap here, so expect to see both numbers drop to some extent.
