Ratings: Talent Tops Wednesday, Big Brother Rises, NBC's Camp Opens OK

Ratings Big Brother Camp NBCAs it did Tuesday, NBC’s America’s Got Talent dominated the Wednesday ratings as well, delivering 10.5 million total viewers and a 2.7 rating, up 11 percent and a tenth from the night before.

NBC’s Camp premiere retained about half of that, doing 5.2 mil/1.5 aka this summer’s No. 2-rated scripted launch (far behind CBS’ Under the Dome), though its numbers dropped sharply at the half-hour mark. Could probably use s’more viewers.

    Didn’t realize there was a new AGT last night. As for American Baking Competition, it was a good finale even though the winner was my least favorite of the finalists. I hope CBS brings the show back next summer even though the ratings weren’t stellar. It was a well produced show with “real” contestants and not reality-show wannabes. I wasn’t expecting to like Jeff Foxworthy as host, but he did a good job (again, not too over-the-top and not too corny). If CBS doesn’t want it on their flagship network, maybe they’ll ship it over to one of their cable partners (ie: TVGuide network).

      Yeah, definitely don’t like the winner, but I loved the competition. It really felt like it was about the baking not contestant drama.

      Hello! I agree with you very much! Seems like Masterchef is going after drama big time this season. It was not like like before.
      Yup, the winner was my least favorite out of the 3, and I wouldn’t be interested in his cookbook, but I would have been for the other 2. And they showed his wife talking to him at the end…
      She said “Oh, I’m so glad you’re coming home! The vacuum misses you!”
      We rewound it to see if that’s what she really said, and it sounded like it the second time too!
      Poor guy!
      It wouldn’t have been as bad if he hadn’t won, but he won, you witch! $250K!
      Maybe he will hire a French maid to do the vacuuming.

      Jeff was a good host, but yes, kind of unexpected for a cooking show.
      Damn, those donuts looked SO GOOD!

    I’m excited about Camp. it seems like the perfect summer show!

    Camp is a real stinker. It’ll likely plummet in upcoming episodes as bad word of mouth gets around.

    Saw about half the first episode of NBC’s, “Camp.” I think they should invent a censor’s rating to indicate a MAXIMUM age for viewers. In which case about 15 would be appropriate for this show.
