America's Got Talent on NBC and Wipeout on ABC again took the two top spots and again Wipeout was the better performer in the 18-49 demographic. AGT slipped to fourth in the demo where Wipeout remained number two. Wipeout picked up more than an additional million versus the previous week and AGT added an additional 700,000+ viewers.
ABC must also be very pleased so far with the current installment of The Bachelorette. Two airings were #3 and #5 both overall and in the 18-49 demo. But The Bachelorette is much more of a solo pursuit and more people are watching Wipeout together. Though Wipeout trailed the special airing of The Bachelorette by a full household ratings point, Wipeout had 600,000+ more viewers.
Greatest American Dog was #6 overall, but 19th in the 18-49 demographic. The season finale of Hell's Kitchen was #9 overall and finished first in the 18-49 demo. So You Think You Can Dance? remained solid for FOX, taking the #8 and #11 spots overall and placing 6th and 7th in the 18-49 year old demo.
Flashpoint was 15th overall but was not among the top 30 shows in the 18-49 demographic. This means in the demo it came behind Moment of Truth (#30), four episodes of Univison's Feugo En La Sangre (#25 and #27-#29 in the 18-49 year old demographic). The 10pm premiere on Sunday of Big Brother was 32nd overall with 6.18 million viewers. It place #20 in the 18-49 rankings.
