According to "live plus same day" viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research, NBC averaged a 1.1 rating, 4 share in adults 18-49 and 4.7 million viewers overall for the week.

NBC also ranked #1 last week among the Big 4 networks in adults, men and women 25-54; men and women 18-49; women 18-34 and adults 18-34 (tied with Fox).

The five regular original telecasts of "Talent" so far this summer have generated the top five 18-49 and total-viewer results among all entertainment broadcasts on the Big 4 networks since the end of the May sweep.
