Americas Got Talent Quarterfinals Top Tuesday, Fantasy Island Reaches Viewership Low

The America’s Got Talent quarterfinals on Tuesday brought NBC the primetime top spot as the most-watched and highest-rated program of the night.

The two-hour episode earned an average 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demo and 6.55 million viewers, per fast affiliates. AGT was steady ratings-wise from last week but saw a tiny dip in viewers by .75%. The talent competition show peaked in its first hour, which drew 6.60M viewers.

The AGT quarterfinals were up against ABC’s two-hour offering of Bachelor In Paradise. Monday’s episode was up from the previous week, but Tuesday’s Bachelor In Paradise faltered a bit (0.7, 2.65M). Lance Bass was the latest guest host to come to paradise, following Wells Adams and David Spade, who stepped in amid Chris Harrison’s departure from the series. Upcoming guest hosts are Lil Jon and Tituss Burgess.

Fox peaked with a new Lego Masters (0.5.1.44M), but saw Fantasy Island drop to a new low. The Fox reboot fell to its series low, earning a 0.3 demo rating and 1.56M viewers. Though the series remained steady in ratings from the previous week, it saw a 9% drop in viewers from the previous episode and fell 20% from its premiere (0.4, 1.97M).

Watch on Deadline

Tuesday on CBS consisted of reruns of NCIS, FBI and FBI: Most Wanted. The network’s last program, FBI: Most Wanted, was the most-watched title in its time-slot.

Strong woman heroes were at the center of CW’s Tuesday, but neither DC’s Stargirl (0.1, 0.62M) and Supergirl (0.1, .57M) performed well enough to outdo the other networks.

Later in the evening, ABC and NBC duked it out with a new episode of The Ultimate Surfer and College Bowl, respectively. While both of the competition programs raked in a 0.4 rating, College Bowl won more viewers.
