Ratings: 'Crash Course' premieres, America's still got talent

Posted on

Boosted by a Wipeout lead-in, the premiere of ABC’s new obstacle-course-for-cars reality series, Crash Course, drew in an average of 5.1 million viewers, but did lose about a million over the course of the hour. CBS and ABC both aired hour-long news specials to the passing of Massachusetts senator Ted Kennedy. America’s Got Talent won Wednesday night, as usual, for NBC.
