The season premiere of “America’s Got Talent” brought in strong ratings Tuesday — just not quite as strong as last year’s debut.
The NBC show scored a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49, off from 2.7 for its 2017 premiere. It was still far and away Tuesday’s No. 1 show in all measures. “World of Dance” opened to a 1.8, down from 2.4 for its series premiere last year but in line with its Season 1 average.
FOX debuted new seasons of “Beat Shazam” (0.8) and “Love Connection” (0.6), both of which came in 0.1 below their averages last summer (when they aired on Thursday, away from “AGT”). CBS’ “48 Hours: NCIS” was even with last week’s 0.5.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||2.2/10||0.7/3||0.6/3||0.5/2||0.3/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||10.43||2.10||5.21||2.23||1.09|

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.
