Ratings: Talent Show Dominates, Many Vacate ABC's Glass House

America’s Got Talent pulled off an easy win on Monday, leading in both total viewers (with 10.4 million) and in the coveted 18-49 demo (scoring a 3.0).

The Bachelorette and NBC’s coverage of the Olympic swimming trials tied for second in total audience, while Hell’s Kitchen was No. 2 in the demo.

Going show by show….

* The Bachelorette was steady in total audience (7 mil) but slipped a tenth in the demo (to a 2.2). Leading out of that, Week 2 of The Glass House (3.33 mil/1.2) saw drops of 16 and 20 percent and even fell below 3 million viewers in its second half-hour.

* Hell’s Kitchen (5.52 mil/2.3) dipped two tenths in the demo, while MasterChef (5.4 mil/2.2) was down just one.

* Leading out of the Olympic trials (7 mil/1.9), American Ninja Warrior enjoyed a 5 percent uptick in audience (hitting 6.1 mil).

    Anyone want to bet that will be cancelled if the ratings go down any further???

      ^ The Glass House

      Only if they have something that will do better than a 1.2/1.0 in the 18-49 demo. Crap ratings but they are contractually obligated to pay the contestants so I would imagine that they’ll do their best to recoup their losses even if it’s a slight loss.

    I tried to give it a chance I truly did. But it’s so boring. I’m not surprised by the loss of viewers

    I like the Glass House. It’s a shame more people aren’t watching. Is it as good as Big Brother? NO. But, I’m digging the viewer interactive nature.

      in my opinion its awful. and to be interactive you have to watch online during the week to vote. i don’t know about you but i have a life and a job and don’t have time for the voting part so it’s useless to me.
