With “America’s Got Talent” returning from a week off, NBC easily maintained its hold over the Tuesday night ratings.

The reality competition series scored a 2.1 rating in adults 18-49, up one-tenth from the 2.0 it’s previous original episode had scored the week before last. “World of Dance,” meanwhile, returned steady with a 1.3. Combined, the two shows easily gave NBC the win over the other networks.

On The CW, “The 100” (0.3) was up a tenth from its previous 0.2, while “The Outpost” had a soft series premiere with a 0.2 and 780,000 viewers. That’s just slightly more viewers than what the canceled “Life Sentence” premiered with on the network earlier this year, and lower than the “The 100’s” 1 million viewer season average so far.

Elsewhere, FOX’s “Beat Shazam” and “Love Connection” both held steady with their previous 0.7 and 0.5 ratings, respectively. ABC’s “The Last Defense” was up a tenth to a 0.5.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 1.8/7 0.6/3 0.5/2 0.4/2 0.3/1

: 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.
