Leading into the NBC sing-off was America’s Got Talent, which with 12.3 million viewers (Tuesday’s biggest draw) and a 3.3 rating was down a few points itself. Fox’s MasterChef (4.3 mil/1.9) was pretty much par with its previous helping.
Elsewhere in the ratingsverse, courtesy of the number-crunches over at TVByTheNumbers:
* Army Wives played taps for its fifth season with an audience of 3.6 million while drawing a 1.2 demo rating (down 8 percent from the aready renewed Lifetime drama’s Season 4 finale).
* Of the two Sunday shows steamrolling toward their own finales, HBO’s Game of Thrones (2.7 mil/1.2) dipped a bit from its week-prior season-high audience, while holding steady in the demo. AMC’s freshly renewed The Killing (1.83 mil/0.5) dipped 8 percent in total viewers.
* In Plain Sight dropped its baby bombshell on 4 million viewers while scoring a 1.0 rating (down 9 percent week-to-week).
* Oxygen’s The Glee Project premiered to just 455,000 total viewers while mustering a 0.2 demo rating. In the name of offering perspective, I will note that Oxygen’s All About Aubrey debuted this past March to 724,000 viewers, The World According to Paris recently bowed to just over 400K, and the latest season finale for Bad Girls Club — the cabler’s pride and joy — drew about 1.5 million viewers.
