Ratings: ‘America’s Got Talent’ Lifts NBC to Top Tuesday’s RNC Hour – and Primetime

CBS’ “Love Island” disappoints at 9 p.m.

Step aside, RNC: “AGT” is in town. NBC topped Tuesday’s primetime outright, though that was more thanks to “America’s Got Talent” than the Republican National Convention.

That said, thanks to that talent competition lead-in, NBC drew the most total viewers in the following hour, when the RNC received national coverage from CBS, NBC and ABC.

NBC was first in ratings with a 0.6 rating/4 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 4.5 million, according to preliminary numbers. “America’s Got Talent” from 8 p.m to 10 p.m. averaged a 0.7/5 and 5.6 million viewers. NBC News’ RNC coverage at 10 had a 0.3/2 and 2.4 million viewers.

ABC and Univision tied for second in ratings, both with a 0.4/2. ABC was third in total viewers with 2 million, Univision was fourth with 1.4 million.

For ABC, following reruns, “What Would You Do?” at 9 had a 0.4/2 and 2.1 million viewers. ABC News’ RNC coverage at 10 got a 0.3/2 and 1.7 million viewers.

CBS, Fox and Telemundo tied for fourth in ratings, each with a 0.3/2. CBS was second in total viewers with 2.5 million viewers, Fox was fifth with 1.14 million and Telemundo was sixth with 1.12 million.

For CBS, following a repeat, “Love Island” at 9 had a 0.3/2 and 1.6 million viewers. CBS News’ convention coverage at 10 received a 0.2/1 and 1.3 million viewers.

Fox aired all reruns last night.

The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.1/0 and in viewers with 339,000.
