Ratings: NBC’s ‘America’s Got Talent’ Beats ‘Voice’ Finale As Network Wins Night

Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” slips 14 percent compared to last week while the Peacock Network takes top two spots

NBC won the Wednesday night ratings race, but in a somewhat surprising turn, "America's Got Talent" earned higher ratings than the season finale of "The Voice," according to preliminary numbers.

NBC's "The Voice" at 8 took a 3.5 rating/12 share in the adults 18-49 demographic — a 6 percent uptick from last week's results show, but down 20 percent compared to Tuesday's performance finale — and 10 million total viewers, grabbing the second-highest ratings of the evening. "America's Got Talent" the following hour, up 3 percent from last week's episode, took the night's top honors with a 4.0/12 in the demo and 13 million total viewers. The network topped off the evening with the premiere of the reality series "Love in the Wild" at 10, which received a 2.2/6 in the demo and 6.4 million total viewers.

Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance," from 8-10 p.m., was down 14 percent compared to last week's airing with a 1.9/6 in the demo and 5.3 million total viewers.

ABC ran reruns throughout the evening, with the exception of "Nightline Primetime: Beyond Belief" at 10, which took a 1.2/3 in the demo and 4.1 million total viewers.

CBS ran repeats throughout the evening.
