Ratings: MLB All-Star Game scores homerun, takes the week

Posted on

America’s Got Talent‘s reign at the top of the weekly ratings chart is over! For the week ending July 19, Fox’s MLB All-Star Game — which featured an opening-game pitch thrown by a dad-jean-wearing President Barack Obama — instead took the No 1. spot, drawing 14.6 million viewers. But the usually-on-top NBC talentfest did land right below the All-Star Game, in the second- and third-place slots, with 13.5 million and 11.6 million viewers for its Tuesday and Wednesday episodes, respectively.

A bevy of various repeats of CBS procedurals and comedies, as well as the retreads of NBC’s Law & Order: SVU and America’s Got Talent, fill out most of the chart. But there were other new-episode entries, including ABC’s The Bachelorette (No. 9 with 8 million viewers); ABC’s Wipeout (No. 12 with 7.7 million viewers); a CBS News special about recently departed newsman Walter Cronkite (No. 14 with 7.6 million viewers); and Fox’s episodes of So You Think You Can Dance on Wednesday (No. 19 with 6.5 million viewers) and Thursday (No. 17 with 7.2 million viewers).
