The first — and as it turns out, only — Tuesday airing of “Big Brother” this season was up slightly from Sunday’s installment, but it couldn’t overtake “America’s Got Talent” to become the night’s top show among adults 18-49.

“AGT,” meanwhile, fell again, but it held onto enough viewers to keep its spot as Tuesday’s most-watched show and carried NBC to a victory for the night. “So You Think You Can Dance” was off slightly for FOX, as was ABC’s “Extreme Weight Loss.”

NBC scored 7.4 million viewers and a 4.6 rating/8 share in households in primetime. CBS (6 million, 4.1/7) came in second. FOX took third with 4.3 million viewers and a 2.7/5, beating ABC (3.3 million, 2.3/4) by a million viewers. The CW (609,000, 0.4/1) trailed.

NBC also led the 18-49 demographic with a 1.8 rating. FOX grabbed the No. 2 spot with a 1.5, beating CBS’ 1.2. ABC averaged 0.9 in the demo and The CW 0.2.
