Top 20 Ratings: NFL Hall of Fame Game Pushes 'America's Got Talent' to 2nd Place

“Talent” Tuesday ties with Giants-Bills preseason pre-game in this week's ratings report

Football is back and it's pushing its TV competition to the sidelines.

The NFL Hall of Fame Game ran on Sunday, topping last week's ratings with a 2.8 in the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic — and in the process, knocking fellow NBC property “America's Got Talent” to second place.

In that spot, Tuesday's “AGT” tied with the New York Giants vs. Buffalo Bills pre-game show, each with a 2.4 rating.

“The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose” special and “MasterChef” both received 2.1's on Monday, good for seventh.
