On a night where the penultimate episode of The Voice aired on NBC as well as a new episode of America’s Got Talent, the Peacock by far won the night with a 3.2 demo amongst adults 18-49, as well as 12.38 million viewers overall. That was better than second place ABC, 5.14 million and a 1.6 demo, FOX, 3.20 million and a 1.3 demo, CBS’ 7.00 million and a 1.1 demo, and the CW’s 646,000 viewers and 0.2 demo.
America’s Got Talent drew 12.04 million viewers and a 3.2 demo at 8PM, drawing the same demo and an additional 70,000 viewers from last week. The penultimate episode of reality series The Voice drew 12.90 million and a 4.3 demo between 9-11PM. That drew the same demo as last week, but had an increase of 8% in total viewers from last week’s 11.81 million.
ABC went with new episodes of Wipeout, which drew 5.52 million and a 1.8 demo — which was up 6% in the demo from last week’s 1.7, and up 3% in total viewers from last week’s 5.33 million. Week two of 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show remained to be strong for a summer series, drawing 5.27 million and a 1.8 demo. That was down a tad from the 5.55 million with a 1.9 demo it premiered with last week, though. The network closed primetime with episode two of Combat Hospital, drawing 4.61 million with a 1.1 demo. That was down 12% from the premiere in total viewers last week, and 8% down in the demo (it drew 5.26 million and a 1.2 demo last week).
FOX went with a new episode of MasterChef at 8PM, which brought in 4.22 million and a 1.7 demo. That was up 2% in total viewers from last week’s episode, but down 6% in the demo (it drew 4.14 million with a 1.8 demo last week). FOX rounded out primetime with two reruns of Raising Hope, 2.15 million and a 0.8 demo for the 9PM encore and 2.19 million and 0.8 demo for the 9:30PM encore.
