America’s Got Talent premiere ratings, reaction videos, and more

America's Got TalentThere’s a lot to discuss in the aftermath of the America’s Got Talent premiere on Tuesday night, but let’s kick off this article with a discussion of the ratings!

The first episode of the new season, which aired on NBC Tuesday night, ended up drawing overall a 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and just over 12 million viewers as a whole. That’s reasonably close to how the show performed in its premiere last year, and it’s a reminder that over time AGT has become one of the biggest shows on all of TV. It just has this ability to showcase talent and have fun in a way that very few other shows out there do — it’s a genuine family show that excels at doing precisely what it does. We don’t imagine too much variance as the season goes along, especially when it comes to the heavy focus that we had on variety acts during the first episode. (There really weren’t too many singers who were shown off here.)

For those wondering, World of Dance did a pretty excellent job following the premiere in posting a 1.8 rating. This show was one of the big surprises of this past summer and with these ratings being what they are right now in the ratings, we imagine it sticking around for some time still.

If you missed it…

Over the course of the past several days we’ve produced a few different videos discussing some of the various acts. This is something that we’re going to keep doing over the rest of the season, so we hope that you stick with us and check some of those out over time.

If you want to see these videos the moment that they are uploaded, we suggest now that you subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube for a little more in the way of insight.
