Broadcast Live +3 ratings, Aug. 22-28: ‘America’s Got Talent’ back on top

agt-ratings-aug-24-16

“America’s Got Talent” returned from its Olympic break in the week of Aug. 22-28 and assumed its spot at the top of the broadcast ratings. It stayed there after factoring in three days of delayed viewing.

The Tuesday edition of the show ranks first in adults 18-49, total viewers and viewers gained. It’s tied for second in adults 18-49 gain, a tenth of a point behind the Thursday “Big Brother.”

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.
