“America’s Got Talent” had its first Wednesday broadcast of the season, and narrowly led the night’s primetime ratings.

The NBC reality-competition series scored the night’s no. 1 spot with a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.72 million viewers, winning the night in both measures despite the 1.1 marking a new series low in the 18-49 demo for the series. “Got Talent” is also down a bit from the 1.5 and 9.85 million viewers that its last season’s Wednesday debut scored in 2018.

At 9 p.m., “Songland” returned from a six-week break and managed to match its last episode’s 0.7 rating. “The InBetween” (0.4) held steady as well.

Meanwhile, FOX’s “BH90210” plummeted in its second week, falling from its premiere’s impressive 1.5 rating to a 0.9 with 2.57 million viewers. It was the night’s third-highest-rated broadcast. Its lead-in, “MasterChef,” also ticked down from its previous 0.9 to a 0.8 this week.

Elsewhere, CBS’ “Big Brother” moved to the 8 p.m. hour, and came second in the night with a 1.0 and 4.28 million viewers, down a tick from the 1.1 it scored last Wednesday.

On ABC, the season finale of “Card Sharks” posted a 0.5, steady with its last episode. It was followed, once again, by a new episode of “Match Game,” which similarly held steady with another 0.5.

Rounding out the night, the CW’s “Bulletproof” (0.1) and “Hypnotize Me” (0.1) both stayed even in their second weeks.

Definitions:

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.
