“America’s Got Talent” held onto the no. 1 spot in the Tuesday primetime ratings, despite taking a small hit week-to-week.

The NBC reality-competition series led the night with a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49, down just a tick from its 1.5 final rating last Tuesday. “Got Talent” easily raked in the night’s largest audience as well, with 9.39 million viewers tuning in. At 10 p.m., the penultimate episode of “Bring the Funny” held steady with its fifth-consecutive 0.7 rating, and rose up to a 5-week high in total viewers (3.81 million).

Elsewhere, ABC’s “Bachelor in Paradise” placed second in the night, scoring the same 1.1 rating that it did a week ago. It was, once again, followed by a pair of back-to-back comedy reruns in the 10 p.m. hour.

The season finale of FOX’s “First Responders Live” raked in a 0.4 with 1.72 million viewers, steady with its last episode and overall season average. Meanwhile, the CW’s “Pandora” scored a 0.2 at 8 p.m., up one-tenth week-to-week. The same could not be said for “Mysteries Decoded,” which returned from a week off, and ticked down from its last outing’s 0.2 to a 0.1.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 1.2/6 0.8/4 0.4/2 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.
