While off from its performance last week when it was only one hour long, a two hour version of America's Got Talent dominated for the peacocks at NBC, especially in the second hour (10p-11p) where it averaged 12.87 million viewers and a 3.7/11 (/share) among 18-49 year olds.
While up until two weeks ago, ABC's had consistently beaten AGT among 18-49 year olds, the tide is changing. Perhaps hurt by still even fewer viewers due to summer vacations, perhaps hurt by the 8pm time slot, 's demo performance was down to a 2.8/9. still easily won the 8pm hour in the demo even though a repeat of had about a million and a half more total viewers.
Still, it's bad news for ABC as Oops. It turns out while not listed as a repeat, because it wasn't, last night's episode of Wipeout was a best-of style recap. Given that, there's nothing to be made of the lower than average numbers except perhaps that given it was a recap show, those numbers are pretty darn decent. has been pretty much the only thing the Mouse has had to smile about all summer. Last week it had a 3.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic once the final numbers were in so if the 2.8 holds up from last night, that's quite a hit.
Update 08/006/08 12:40p PDT: more good news for Wipeout fans, Variety reports it has been renewed for a second season.
Two hours worth of I Survived a Japanese Game Show's season finale probably will also be its series finale. It scored under a 2.0 rating among 18-49 year old (1.8/5). Worse than a rerun of House, not to mention Feugo en la Sangre on Univision and only about the same as a repeat of FOX's.
continues to perform for CBS, scoring the best 18-49 performance of the night for the Tiffany network with a 2.5/7.
