Bust out those golden buzzers because NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” scored both the highest ratings and the biggest overall audience among all broadcast networks in primetime Tuesday night. The long-running competition series earned an impressive 0.8 rating in the advertiser-friendly 18-49 demographic while also attracting 6.4 million total viewers.

Unsurprisingly, “AGT’s” massive totals helped prop NBC up as the highest-rated and most-watched broadcast network on the night. But that doesn’t mean that rival Big Four networks just packed up without a fight.

CBS and ABC continue to trade blows in the ratings battle ahead of the highly anticipated Fall broadcast season.
