NBC is the #1 network among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox Tuesday night in adults 18-49 and total viewers, led by "America's Got Talent," the #1 show of the night on those networks in both measures.

From 9-11 p.m. ET, "America's Got Talent" (2.2/6 in 18-49, 8.5 million viewers overall) is the #1 telecast of the night on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-49, total viewers and other key categories, topping the #2 telecast on those nets in 18-49 by a 69% margin (with a 2.2 from 9-11 p.m. vs. the 1.3 from 8-10 for Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance”).  In the 9-11 p.m. time period, "Talent" is #1 among ABC, CBS and NBC and Fox in virtually every key ratings measure.  “Talent” is matching its 18-49  rating of last week and is up slightly in total viewers (8.531 million vs. 8.523 million).

In the 10:30 lead-in to local news, “Talent” generated a 155% margin of victory among ABC, CBS and NBC in the key news demo of adults 25-54 (with a 2.8 rating vs. a 1.1 for CBS’s #2 “Person Of Interest” encore), and dominated those networks in all other key measures.

From 8-9 p.m. ET, an encore telecast of “Hollywood Game Night” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 3.3 million viewers overall) grew from its first half-hour to its second by 10% in 18-49 rating (to a 1.1 from a 1.0) and by 50% in men 18-49 (0.9 vs. 0.6).  In the time period, the “HGN” encore is #2 among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-34.
