“America’s Got Talent” saw a week-to-week decline, but it still drew a far better rating than anything else on broadcast last night.
From 9 to 11 p.m. “Talent” averaged a 2.6 adults 18-49 rating, according to Nielsen overnights, off 13 percent from last week’s 3.0.
But it was almost a point higher than the night’s No. 2 show, Univision’s “Amores Verdaderos,” which averaged a 1.7 at 9 p.m.
Two original shows on other broadcasters did see gains. Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” averaged a 1.6, up 14 percent from last week, when it faced game six of the NBA Finals.
And ABC’s “Extreme Weight Loss,” back from a three-week hiatus for basketball, averaged a 1.3, up 20 percent from its most recent episode.
NBC won the night easily with a 2.1 18-49 rating and 6 share. Fox was second with a 1.6/5, Univision was third with a 1.5/5, ABC was fourth with a 1.0/3, CBS was fifth with a 0.9/3, Telemundo was sixth with a 0.8/3, and the CW was seventh with a 0.2/1.
As a reminder, all ratings are based on live-plus-same-day DVR playback, which includes shows replayed before 3 a.m. the night before. Seven-day DVR data won’t be available for several weeks. Forty-eight percent of Nielsen households have DVRs.
Fox led at 8 p.m. with the first hour of “SYTYCD,” which averaged a 1.7. Univision’s “Porque el Amor Manda” was second with a 1.5. NBC’s “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers” and ABC’s “Weight” tied for third with a 1.1 apiece. CBS’s “NCIS” repeat was fifth with a 1.0, Telemundo’s “Dama y Obrero” was sixth with a 0.5, and the CW’s “Hart of Dixie” repeat was seventh with a 0.2.
At 9 p.m. NBC’s “Talent” moved into first with a 2.4. Univision’s “Amores” took second with a 1.7, and Fox’s “SYTYCD” was third with a 1.5. ABC’s second hour of “Weight” took fourth with a 1.3, Telemundo’s “La Patrona” was fifth with a 0.9, CBS’s “NCIS: Los Angeles” was sixth with a 0.8, and CW’s “America’s Next Top Model” placed seventh with a 0.2.
At 10 p.m. “Talent” held the lead with a 2.7. Univision’s “Que Bonito Amor” was second with a 1.3, and Telemundo’s “El Señor de los Cielos” placed third with a 1.1. CBS’s “Person of Interest” took fourth with a 0.8 and ABC’s “Body of Proof” rerun was fifth with a 0.7.
Among households, NBC finished first with a 4.8/8. CBS was second with a 4.4/7, Fox was third with a 2.9/5, ABC was fourth with a 2.4/4, Univision was fifth with a 1.9/3, Telemundo was sixth with a 0.9/2, and CW was seventh with a 0.6/1.http://www.medialifemagazine.com/talent-tops-tuesday-night-for-nbc/* * * *TV Notes‘Big Brother,’ back for round 15CBS reality show returns following a rare down season

The big premiere for “Under the Dome” on CBS
earlier this week also brought back a little reminder about “Big Brother.”
When the show, which returns for season 15 tonight at 8 p.m.
on the network, premiered in summer 2000 it actually drew stronger numbers than “Survivor.”
“Brother” drew 22.3 million total viewers in its bow, nearly 7 million more than “Survivor.”
Though “Survivor” became the more popular of the two, going on to become one of CBS’s anchor shows for years.“Brother” has remained remarkably steady.
It doesn’t always win its timeslot, but it always draws good numbers, especially for a show that’s so far into its run.
Last summer “Brother” averaged a 2.1 adults 18-49 Nielsen rating on each of the three nights of the week it was on.
Though it was down double-digit percentages from 2011, it was airing against the Olympics. In fact it was one of the few shows that actually aired originals against the Summer Games.
Still, to guard against further declines, CBS has made some changes to the show. It’s starting with more contestants than ever, 16, and it will last longer, 100 days, than ever before.
Plus with the recent surge in sales for the book “1984” on the heels of the National Security Agency’s cyber-spying revelations, that interest could well carry over to television.
However, viewers will learn quickly that these dirty-talking, scheming contestants are worlds apart from the citizens in George Orwell’s story of a futuristic society in which the government (Big Brother) spies on every aspect of their lives.http://www.medialifemagazine.com/big-brother-back-for-round-15/
