agt 8 aug 20 ratings TV ratings: 'America's Got Talent' stumbles but still leads TuesdayFast National ratings for Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2013

Tuesday’s ratings were something of a mixed bag for the broadcast networks. “America’s Got Talent” hit a season low for its Tuesday show on NBC, and “So You Think You Can Dance” was down some as well for FOX.

On the brighter side, though, ABC’s “Extreme Weight Loss” was up over last week and scored its best 18-49 rating in a year. “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” stayed solid for The CW, and “Capture” rebounded from its low last week.

NBC brought in 6.75 million viewers and a 4.1 rating/7 share in households for the night, edging CBS (6.3 million, 4.2/7) for the overall lead. FOX (3.75 million, 2.5/4) came in third. ABC (3.4 million, 2.4/4) finished fourth, and The CW (1.6 million, 1.0/2) brought up the rear.

NBC also led the 18-49 demographic with a 1.8 rating. FOX grabbed second with a 1.2, followed by ABC at 1.0. CBS averaged 0.8 and The CW 0.6.
