Ratings: 'America's Got Talent' vs. 'Big Brother'

Posted on

America’s Got Talent continued to dominate Tuesday’s ratings, though it lost roughly a million viewers from last week. Perhaps those folks tuned into CBS’ Big Brother, which gained more than a million viewers in comparison. ABC’s latest reality offering, Shaq VS, premiered, with Shaquille O’Neal challenging Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers to a quarterback challenge. Though the show finished in third place at 9 p.m., it did deliver ABC its strongest summer numbers in that time slot (with regular programming) in over a year in both total viewers and Adults 18-49.
