Broadcast Live +3 ratings, Aug. 1-7: Olympics lead (obviously), ‘America’s Got Talent’ gains the most

agt-ratings-aug-2-16

The first three days of the Summer Olympics dominated the ratings for the week of Aug. 1-7, and they remain on top, by a lot, after three days of delayed viewing.

Among regular programming, “America’s Got Talent,” the Wednesday “Big Brother” and the premiere of “Bachelor in Paradise” had the biggest gains among adults 18-49, each growing by 0.6 points from same-day to Live +3. “AGT” also had the largest viewer gain.

Because there is less original programming summer, rankings will cut off at gains of 0.2 in adults 18-49 and 250,000 viewers. That may result in fewer than 25 entries in some cases.
