Jennifer Lopez’s “World of Dance” put up some strong “live” Nielsen numbers last night, but they weren’t nearly as impressive as the prior week’s series premiere.
Lead-in “America’s Got Talent” actually stayed steady with its own behemoth TV ratings from seven days ago, when that competition started a new season.
With those two combined, NBC easily topped Tuesday’s primetime.
NBC was first in ratings with a 2.4 rating/10 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 11 million, according to preliminary numbers. “AGT” at 8 p.m. scored a 2.6/11 and 12.2 million viewers. “World of Dance” at 10 posted a 1.9/8 and 8.5 million viewers.
CBS and ABC tied for second in ratings, both with a 0.6. CBS had a 3 share, ABC got a 2. CBS was second in total viewers with 5.8 million, ABC was third with 2.4 million.
For CBS, following reruns, “48 Hours: NCIS” at 10 received a 0.5/2 and 4.8 million viewers.
For ABC, “Downward Dog” at 8 had a 0.7/3 and 3.6 million viewers. Repeats followed.
Univision was fourth in ratings with a 0.5/2 and fifth in viewers with 1.5 million.
Fox and Telemundo tied for fifth in ratings, both with a 0.4/2. Fox was fourth in total viewers with 1.6 million, airing only reruns; Telemundo was seventh with 974,000.
The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.3/1 and sixth in viewers with 1.2 million. Following a repeat, “iZombie” at 9 managed a 0.4/1 and 1.2 million viewers.
