Broadcast Live +7 ratings: ‘America’s Got Talent,’ ‘Mistresses’ lead for Aug. 22-28

agt-ratings-aug-24-16

“America’s Got Talent” and “Mistresses” were the biggest beneficiaries of DVR viewing for the week of Aug. 22-28.

The Tuesday “AGT” had the biggest total gains in both adults 18-49 (+0.7, 2.4 to 3.1) and viewers (+2.22 million) after a week of delayed viewing. “Mistresses” was the percentage leader in both categories, rising by 67 percent in the 18-49 demographic (0.6 to 1.0) and by 50 percent in viewers (2.45 million to 3.68 million).

Below are the broadcast Live +7 rankings for the week of Aug. 22-28, 2016. Because there is less original programming summer, rankings will cut off at gains of 0.2 in adults 18-49 and 250,000 viewers, along with 20 percent increases in the percentage rankings. That may result in fewer than 25 entries in some cases.
