Ratings: America's Got Talent Tops Tuesday, While The Voice and SYTYCD Slip
NBC’s America’s Got Talent kicked off Season 8 with a total audience of 11.1 million total viewers and a 3.1 demo rating — an all-time low for a premiere, yet besting all Tuesday comers, even lead-in The Voice, in both measures.
Versus its previous premiere (which aired in-season), AGT added a handful of viewers and was down 16 percent in the demo, though the show was up 5 and 30 percent from last September’s finale.
The aforementioned The Voice (10.6 mil/3.0) dipped two tenths week-to-week.
Facing stronger competition, Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance (4.4 mil/1.6) dropped 12 percent and three tenths, ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss (3.8 mil/1.0) shed 12 percent and two tenths and CBS’ Brooklyn DA (4.1 mil/0.8) fell 15 percent and two tenths.
