"America's Got Talent" was down a little from its performance last week, but the show still led NBC to a ratings win Tuesday night, beating out a fairly solid night of repeats on CBS.

NBC drew 8.8 million viewers and a 5.6 rating/9 share in households in primetime. CBS was not far behind with 8.3 million viewers and a 5.7/9. ABC (4.4 million, 2.7/4) came in third. FOX took fourth with 2.4 million viewers and a 1.6/3, while The CW (647,000, 0.5/1) was well off the pace.

In the adults 18-49 demographic, NBC's 2.4 rating was a point better than the 1.4 for ABC and CBS, which tied for second. FOX managed only a 0.8 with its repeat lineup. The CW drew a 0.2.
