TV ratings: 'America's Got Talent' holds Tuesday lead, 'Whose Line' stays steady

agt-8-aug-13-ratings.JPGFast National ratings for Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2013

Tuesday's ratings this week look a lot like Tuesday's ratings last week, and for much of the summer. "America's Got Talent" was the night's top show by a wide margin -- although it was down some from last week -- and the night's other originals were basically in line with their recent numbers.

"Whose Line Is It Anyway?" and "So You Think You Can Dance" both dipped slightly in adults 18-49, but they were up a bit in adults 18-34. "Extreme Weight Loss" dipped a little for ABC, and "Capture" dropped from its first couple of weeks for The CW.

NBC drew 6.9 million viewers and a 4.2 rating/7 share in households for the night. CBS (6 million, 4.1/7) finished second, a good ways ahead of third-place FOX (3.9 million, 2.5/4). ABC came in fourth with 3.35 million viewers and a 2.3/4. The CW (1.4 million, 0.8/1) trailed.

The adults 18-49 title also went to NBC, which scored a 1.9 in the demographic. FOX took second with a 1.3, followed by ABC at 1.0. CBS averaged 0.8 and The CW 0.5.
