Ratings: Talent Dips But Dominates, Food Fighters Comes Out Half-Baked

NBC’s first fresh America’s Got Talent in a small eternity on Tuesday drew 10.3 million total viewers and a 2.4 demo rating, dipping 7 percent and two tenths from its last original but still handily dominating the night on both counts.

Opening the Peacock’s night, the premiere of Food Fighters cooked up just 4.6 mil and a 1.0, tying an NCIS rerun for the 8 o’clock demo win and drawing the repeat-filled night’s fifth-largest audience. An everlong road ahead?

Over on ABC, Extreme Weight Loss (3.4 mil/0.9) shed a tenth while Celebrity Wife Swap (2.7 mil/0.8) divorced itself from a good 25 percent of its previous numbers.

And… I’m out of puns. See you back here on Thursday!

    Wow, with those numbers, Food Fighters better need to learn to fly, or find itself talking a walk out the door…

    I like everything on America’s Got Talent…judges, MC and the variety of the acts. A well rounded show!!

      Why has AGT been in reruns for so long? As a summer series why would they need so many weeks of reruns or “best of” episodes? Every time I turned it on there was another act I’d already seen. Very confusing schedule this year.

    I enjoy AGT, but last night’s episode started with the judges visiting acts to personally announce they were finalists. Was bored, so decided to watch it later and skip that part. That segment was a bad idea imo.
