America’s Got Talent: Extreme post weak ratings
America’s Got Talent: Extreme third week for NBC earned a 0.51 in the key demo and 3.2 million viewers. The show has averaged about .5 during its short run. Maybe the numbers will lift for next Monday’s finale. But considering all the bad publicity surrounding the series after a contestant landed in the hospital for 4 months after a horrific accident, the weak ratings aren’t a surprise. It’s bound to earn higher ratings.
Also, the network delayed AGT after production shut down, consequently pushing American Song Contest out as well. In any case, NBC is probably happy that American Song Contest will slide into Monday at 8 pm on March 21.
