TV ratings: 'America's Got Talent' falls but still leads Wednesday
The first eliminations on "America's Got Talent" didn't pull in the ratings the show has earned in recent weeks, but it was still the night's top show. It was not however, big enough to give NBC a win in the prime-time race.
That honor went to CBS, which averaged 7.05 million viewers and a 4.6 rating/8 share in households to NBC's 6.95 million and 4.4/7. FOX (5.5 million, 3.6/6) came in third. ABC took fourth with 3.6 million viewers and a 2.4/4, and The CW trailed with 770,000 viewers and a 0.6/1.
There was a three-way tie at the top of the adults 18-49 ratings, with CBS, FOX and NBC all scoring a 1.9 rating in the demographic. ABC posted a 1.2 and The CW a 0.3.
