The season finale of America’s Got Talent easily led the Wednesday primetime ratings this week, despite being down from its Tuesday night broadcast and its finale numbers from last year.

The NBC reality competition series scored a 2.0 average rating in adults 18-49 with 12.59 million viewers, significantly ahead of any of its competition in the demo and up four-tenths from its broadcast last Wednesday (1.6), but down three-tenths from the 2.3 it had scored Tuesday night. Pending updates, it was also down one whole point from the 3.0 it had pulled in with its season finale last year.
