“America’s Got Talent” had its lowest Tuesday ratings of the season, but there’s an asterisk attached to that stat.
The show aired an hour later than usual Tuesday night, following the multi-network telecast of a benefit telethon to raise money for recovery from hurricanes Harvey and Irma. “AGT” posted a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49, down from 2.6 last week.
The “Hand in Hand” benefit drew a combined 15.71 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX (it also aired on several cable channels). It raised a reported $44 million for relief efforts.
The only other original show on the broadcast networks Tuesday was ABC’s “Somewhere Between,” which at 0.3 was off a tenth of a point from last week.

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.
