The “Bachelor in Paradise” finale also tied its overall demo high for the season, and narrowly topped its 2018 finale’s 1.2 demo rating.

NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” was the night’s only broadcast to beat “Bachelor in Paradise,” with “Got Talent’s” final live performance episode of the season raking in a 1.6 and 9.73 million viewers. That’s not only up from the 1.4 and 9.48 million viewers that it scored a week ago, but marks a 4-week demo high for the series.

The season finale of “Bring the Funny” capped off the night for NBC with a 0.7 and 3.61 million viewers, steady with its penultimate episode from last week.

On the CW, “Pandora” (0.1) matched its episode from a week ago, while “Mysteries Decoded” (0.2) ticked up one-tenth week-to-week. The rest of the night’s broadcasts were all repeats.

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.
