“America’s Got Talent” faced more competition than usual Tuesday night, but despite taking a small hit, the NBC series still managed to lead the night’s primetime ratings this week.

The reality-competition series won the night for NBC with a 1.5 average rating in adults 18-49 and 9.34 million viewers, down one-tenth from the 1.6 it scored a week ago. “Songland” (0.9) also ticked down another tenth week-to-week.

On ABC, with the NBA Finals pushing it to Tuesday night, “The Bachelorette” slipped from its last episode’s 1.5 to a a 1.3 with 4.71 million viewers. It still was a solid lead-in for the premiere of the network’s “Press Your Luck” revival, which posted an OK 0.8 rating with a 3.2 million viewer audience.

Combined, “The Bachelorette” and “Press Your Luck” carried ABC to its best Tuesday night summertime performance since August 2016. The latter series will make its official time-period premiere at 8 p.m. tonight.

Elsewhere, CBS’ “Blood & Treasure” dropped from its previous 0.5 to a 0.4, marking a new low for the freshman series. It was the network’s only original broadcast of the night, following “NCIS” and “FBI” repeats.

The CW’s “The 100” returned from a week off with a 0.2, steady with its last episode, while FOX took the night off with back-to-back “9-1-1” reruns (0.4, 0.3).

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.
