TV ratings: 'Talent' dips again Wednesday, NBC knocked from the topAdd to Favorites | America's Got Talent
"America's Got Talent" has hit a bit of a midseason lull -- it was still Wednesday's top-rated show, but it's now declined for two straight weeks and fell below 10 million viewers for the first time this summer.
NBC also fell out of the top spot in both the overall numbers and the 18-49 demographic for the night. The total viewer crown went to CBS, which averaged 6.85 million viewers and a 4.4 rating/8 share in households. NBC (6.2 million, 3.8/6) finished second, beating out FOX's 5.4 million and 3.4/6. ABC (3.6 million, 2.3/4) took fourth, and The CW trailed with a little under 1 million viewers and a 0.6/1.
No network broke a 2.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demo, but FOX led the way with a 1.9. CBS (1.8) and NBC (1.7) were not far behind. ABC posted a 1.1 and The CW a 0.3.
