Ratings: NBC Annihilates Light Competition With ‘AGT,’ ‘Songland’

”Blood & Treasure“ on CBS was the only other Big 4 broadcast original

Tuesday was a breezy night for NBC. “America’s Got Talent” and “Songland” destroyed the rest of broadcast TV’s primetime when only one competitor dared to air an original show.

That other non-rerun on the Big 4 broadcast nets — NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox — was CBS’ “Blood & Treasure.” Unfortunately, it was not strong enough for CBS to avoid a four-way tie for second place among adults 18-49.

The CW aired an original episode of “The 100” at 9 p.m.

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.3 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 8.2 million, according to preliminary numbers. “AGT” from 8 to 10 averaged a 1.5/8 and 9.9 million viewers. “Songland” at 10 had a 1.0/5 and 4.9 million viewers.

CBS, ABC, Univision and Telemundo all tied for second in ratings, each with a 0.4/2. CBS was second in total viewers with 4.6 million, ABC was third with 1.9 million, Univision was fifth with 1.37 million and Telemundo was sixth with 1.26 million.

For CBS, following repeats, that “Blood & Treasure” original at 10 managed a 0.4/2 and 3.8 million viewers.

Fox was sixth in ratings with a 0.3/2 and fourth in viewers with 1.44 million.

The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.2/1 and in viewers with 695,000. Following a rerun, “The 100” at 9 got a 0.2/1 and 731,000 viewers.
