NBC's AMERICA'S GOT TALENT Is Tuesday's No. 1 Telecast

NBC is #1 Tuesday night among ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX in adults 18-49 and total viewers and #1 or tied for #1 among those nets in all other key measures, led by the #1 show of the night in 18-49, total viewers and all other key categories, "America's Got Talent."



From 9-11 p.m. ET, "America's Got Talent" (2.6/8 in 18-49, 10.0 million viewers overall) is the #1 telecast of the night on ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX in 18-49, total viewers and all other key categories, with a margin of 63% versus the #2 show in 18-49 (2.6 vs. 1.6 for Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance" from 8-10 p.m.). "Talent" is #1 in the slot among ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX in every key ratings category



"Talent" built by 23% from its first half-hour to its fourth in adults 18-49 (to a 2.7 rating from a 2.2). In total viewers, "Talent" grew by 20% or more than 1.7 million persons (10.6 million vs. 8.8 million). For its second hour from 10-11 p.m., "Talent" topped the encore-drama competition on ABC and CBS combined in every key category -- adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.



In the 10:30 lead-in to local news, "Talent" delivered a 183% margin of victory among ABC, CBS and NBC in the key news demo of adults 25-54 (with a 3.4 rating vs. a 1.2 for CBS's second-place "Person of Interest" encore). "Talent" topped ABC and CBS combined in the 10:30 half-hour in every key ratings category.



Note that "Talent" aired for the first time this season without "The Voice" also running on the schedule on the same night. Last week's "Talent" served as the lead-in to the most-watched "Voice" finale ever and the prior two weeks, "Talent" benefited from a "Voice" lead-in. Despite that, "Talent" is currently running within 10% of last week's 2.9 in these preliminary fast-affiliate ratings and within 13% of last week's 3.0 in official nationals.



"Betty White's Off Their Rockers" (1.1/4 in 18-49, 4.0 million viewers overall with an 8 p.m. encore; and 1.1/4 in 18-49, 4.2 million viewers with an 8:30 original) returned after a three-month absence and matched its prior 18-49 rating (1.1/3 at 8:30 on March 19).



The 1.1 equals the top "Off Their Rockers" result since February 26.



In total viewers, the 8:30 "Off Their Rockers" original delivered the show's biggest audience (4.2 million) since February 26 (4.3 million at 8:30).



The 8 p.m. encore is #2 in the time period among ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX in adults 18-49
