NBC led the Tuesday primetime ratings yet again, despite both of its unscripted titles taking small hits week-to-week.

“America’s Got Talent” led the night with a 1.6 average rating in adults 18-49, down one-tenth from its season premiere’s 1.7 last week. It was still the night’s no. 1 broadcast in both adults 18-49 and in total viewers, and should the episode’s 9.75 million viewers hold or improve in the finals later today, it’ll be only the second time in 9 years that “AGT” has manage to grow its viewership in its second week.

Rounding out the night for NBC, “Songland” similarly dipped from its series premiere’s 1.1 final rating to a 1.0 this time around, making it the night’s second-highest-rated broadcast in the demo.

On FOX, the 2-hour season finale of “MasterChef Junior” averaged a 0.8 rating with 3.06 million viewers, steady with its 8 p.m. broadcast from last week.

Elsewhere, ABC and the CW both took the night off, airing only repeats. “Blood & Treasure” remained CBS’ only original broadcast of the night, and scored the same 0.5 that it did a week ago.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 1.4/7 0.7/4 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.
