Ratings: ‘America’s Got Talent’ Decimates ‘Bachelor in Paradise’

NBC tops ABC, CBS, Fox and The CW combined in the key 18-49 demographic

NBC absolutely dominated another Tuesday primetime thanks to “America’s Got Talent.”

On the back of its big two-hour reality competition, NBC actually topped ABC, CBS, Fox and The CW combined in the key 18-49 ratings demographic. Plus, lead-in “AGT” handed the 10 p.m. “Hollywood Game Night” its third-largest audience ever — you’re welcome, Jane Lynch.

While a very distant second, ABC’s “Bachelor in Paradise” ended up as the No. 2 show on broadcast last night. Fox finished behind both Univision and Telemundo in the main demo, airing just reruns.
