With the #1 and #2 shows of the night in 18-49, "America's Got Talent" and "The Night Shift."

Leading six of six half-hours among the Big 4 in 18-49 and total viewers. With both "Talent" and "Night Shift" winning their slots among the Big 4 in every key measure.



"America's Got Talent" (2.6/9 in 18-49, 10.9 million viewers overall from 8-10:01 p.m. ET) is up +24% versus its prior original telecast on Sunday, June 22, and maintained 100% of its 18-49 rating from its last two Tuesday originals (2.6 on June 10 and 17). Last night's "Talent" equaled the show's highest 18-49 rating since June 3 (2.9), despite running an encore in this slot last week. Versus the same night last year, "Talent" was up by +8% in 18-49 rating (with a 2.6 vs. a 2.4 on July 2, 2013) and up +15% in total viewers (10.947 million vs. 9.555 million).



"America's Got Talent" beat the combined ABC-CBS-Fox-CW competition in the time period last night in adults 18-49 (2.6 vs. a combined 2.5).



"America's Got Talent" grew steadily through its four half-hours with this track: 2.1, 2.3, 2.8, 3.0. From its first half-hour to its fourth, "Talent" grew by +43% in 18-49 rating (to a 3.0 from a 2.1) and by +29% and more than 2.7 million persons in total viewers (12.2 million vs. 9.4 million). From its first hour to its second, "Talent" grew by 0.7 of a point (2.9 vs. 2.2), its strongest hour-to-hour growth so far this season.



Renewed for a second season by NBC yesterday, "The Night Shift" (1.5/5 in 18-49, 7.2 million viewers overall from 10:01-11 p.m. ET) jumped versus last week by +25% in 18-49 rating (to a 1.5 from a 1.2) and by +21% or 1.2 million persons in total viewers (7.164 million vs. 5.921 million). "The Night Shift" won the time period among ABC, CBS and NBC in every key measure. "Night Shift" was the #2 show of the night on the Big 4 in 18-49, behind only "Talent."



"The Night Shift" delivered its top 18-49 rating since June 10 (1.5) and matched its highest rating since the show premiered May 27 (1.6). In total viewers, "Night Shift" generated its biggest overall audience (7.164 million) since the May 27 debut (7.669 million).
