NBC scored another overall victory in the Tuesday primetime ratings this week, despite one of its shows taking an unfortunate hit.

“America’s Got Talent” led the night with a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 9.01 million viewers, down just a tick from the 1.5 final rating and 9.65 million viewers it raked in a week ago. “Bring the Funny” experienced a worse decline week-to-week, falling from its previous 0.9 to a 0.7 – tying its current low in the demo.

Elsewhere, it was another solid Tuesday night for “Bachelor in Paradise,” which is preliminarily up from the 1.1 it scored last Tuesday to a 1.2 this time around, with 4.07 million viewers. It was, once again, followed by reruns of “Bless This Mess” and “Black-ish.” FOX’s “First Responders Live” matched its last outing’s 0.4.

The CW’s “Pandora” (0.1) similarly stayed even, while the series premiere of “Mysteries Decoded” posted a 0.1 with 478,000 viewers. That puts it a little below the 0.2 that “The 100” averaged in the same time slot earlier this summer.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 1.2/6 0.9/4 0.5/3 0.4/2 0.1/1

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. 
Share (of Audience): 
The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. 
Time Shifted Viewing:
 Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include  viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
