Ratings: 'America's Got Talent' tops a repeat-filled week

Posted on

For the week ending July 5, America’s Got Talent took home the No. 1 and No. 2 spots in the weekly ratings race with 13.1 million and 11.4 million viewers for the Tuesday and Wednesday airings, respectively. And actually, the top of the chart wasn’t the only place where Talent popped up: Repeats of the show, which air in the hour prior to both the Tuesday and Wednesday episodes, appear at No. 8 and No. 28, adding an additional 8.2 million and 6 million viewers to the franchise’s overall pull. NBC hasn’t had an entertainment program top the charts since last summer when…Talent last aired.

Amid the usual sea of repeats of CBS procedurals and comedies, a new episode of CBS’ 48 Hours Mystery rolled in at No. 11 with 8 million viewers; ABC scored at No. 11 and No. 15 with fresh installments of Wipeout (8 million viewers) and The Bachelorette (7.9 million viewers), respectively; and Fox’s two latest editions of So You Think You Can Dance cleared 7.7 million viewers and 7.2 million viewers on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, to land at No. 17 and No. 19. The rest of the Top 20, which you can find after the jump, is — you guessed it! — filled with summer repeats.
