Facing even less competition than usual, NBC coasted to an easy win in the Tuesday primetime ratings this week.

“America’s Got Talent” led the night with a 1.5 average rating in adults 18-49, matching its episode from a week ago. Pending updates, the reality-competition series also rose from its previous episode’s 9.45 million viewer average, up to a season high 9.87 million viewers this time around. It was the night’s highest-rated and most-watched broadcast by a considerable margin.

Following “Got Talent,” the latest episode of “Songland” posted a 1.0 with 4.85 million viewers at 10 p.m., back up from the 0.9 and 4.15 million viewers it scored last Tuesday.

On CBS, “Blood & Treasure” grabbed a 0.4 with 3.79 million viewers, steady with its last episode. It was the network’s only new broadcast of the night. Meanwhile, the CW’s “The 100” had another “Flash” rerun as its lead-in, but stayed even with another 0.2.

Elsewhere, both ABC and FOX took the entire night off, airing only repeats.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 1.3/7 0.4/2 0.4/2 0.3/2 0.2/1

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.
