“America’s Got Talent” dropped in the ratings for the second consecutive week, but it was still far and away Tuesday night’s top show.

“So You Think You Can Dance” was also down a little bit for FOX, falling behind ABC’s “Extreme Weight Loss” in viewers in its second hour. On the (more or less) positive side, “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” and “Capture” were about even with their performances last week for The CW.

NBC drew 7.4 million viewers and a 4.5 rating/7 share in households for the night. CBS (6.25 million, 4.2/7) finished second in the viewer race, leading FOX (4 million, 2.5/4) by a couple million people. ABC (3.55 million, 2.4/4) came in fourth, and The CW (1.6 million, 0.9/2) trailed.

NBC also led the 18-49 demographic with a 2.0 rating. FOX came in second with a 1.3, followed by ABC at 1.0. CBS scored a 0.9 and The CW a 0.6.
