“America’s Got Talent’s” second set of semifinalists for Season 9 saw a drop of about half a million viewers over last week, losing the total-viewers crown to two “NCIS” reruns. “Food Fighters,” was also down for NBC.

Elsewhere, “The Story of Frozen” special on ABC was down slightly from last week’s special “Bachelor in Paradise” episode, but it was quite popular with the kids 2-11 demographic, in which it scored an eight-month high for ABC. “Extreme Weight Loss” was also down this week.
