The CW’s “Superman & Lois” didn’t quite soar in its Season 1 finale, but it did rise from last week. Fox’s “Fantasy Island” did not follow suit, dipping from its week-ago series premiere.
NBC topped Tuesday with “America’s Got Talent.” CBS and ABC both aired entirely reruns last night.
NBC was first in ratings with a 0.7 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 5.3 million, according to preliminary numbers. At 8 p.m., “America’s Got Talent” scored a 0.8 and 6.6 million viewers. “Capital One College Bowl” at 10 received a 0.4 and 2.7 million viewers.
“America’s Got Talent” Season 16 continued its quarterfinals round Tuesday with multiple stellar performances, including vocal group T.3’s rendition of Olivia Rodrigo’s “good 4 u.” And we gotta tell you, there was not a sour note in sight when this TikTok sensation of tenors — Liam, Brendan and Jim — covered Rodrigo’s emotional hit. Also, young opera-singer contestant Victory Brinker put on another overwhelmingly amazing show for the judges, which made Simon Cowell predict she’ll go on to sell millions of records one day.

For The CW, a new episode of “DC’s Stargirl” got a 0.2 and 1.1 million viewers. At 9, the Season 1 finale of “Superman & Lois” drew a 0.2 and 891,000 viewers.
