TV ratings: 'Talent' wins out for NBC Wednesday
A televised 15-minute speech by President Obama at the start of primetime Wednesday disrupted the networks' schedules a little, so the numbers below will change some in the final nationals. What won't change is the fact that NBC and "America's Got Talent" won the night handily.
NBC pulled in 11.1 million viewers and a 6.5 rating/11 share in households Wednesday night, leading its closest competitor by more than 5 million viewers. FOX (5.7 million, 3.4/6) finished a little ahead of CBS (5.6 million, 3.7/6) for second. ABC was fourth with 4.3 million viewers and a 2.8/5. The CW (933,000, 0.6/1) trailed.
NBC also led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 3.3 rating. FOX took second with a 2.0. ABC's 1.2 edged CBS' 1.1 for third. The CW was at the back of the pack with a 0.4.
