Since there was no advertising in President Obama's address, the speech was stripped out of the final numbers (though I'm sure Nielsen will report cumulative totals for the address shortly), but here are the final broadcast program ratings for Wednesday night.
Wednesday night final broadcast TV ratings:
|Time||Net||Show||18-49 Rating/Sh||Viewers (Millions)|
|9:00||NBC||America's Got Talent 9:16-10:16p||3.9/11||13.49|
|10:00||NBC||America's Got Talent (R) 10:16p-||2.9/8||10.75|
