The first “America’s Got Talent” live show of the season gave NBC another easy win in the Tuesday primetime ratings this week.

“Got Talent” scored a 2.0 rating in adults 18-49, up a tenth from its previous 1.9. The Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler-hosted “Making It” followed with a 1.0, the same as its preliminary last week, but one-tenth higher than its 0.9 final.

On ABC, “Bachelor in Paradise” scored a 1.0 as well, down from the 1.1 its premiere had scored last Tuesday. “Castaways” similarly slipped from a 0.7 to a 0.6 with 2.76 million viewers this week, pending updates. FOX’s “Beat Shazam” (0.6) ticked down a tenth from its previous episode, while “Love Connection” (0.4) held steady once again.

Predictably, NBC held onto the night’s no. 1 spot among the Big 4 networks with a 1.7 overall average in the 18-49 race and 8.64 million total viewers. ABC followed behind with a 0.9, while CBS and FOX tied for third with matching 0.5s.

Definitions:
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.
