America’s Got Talent Ratings Rise, But Drop Sharply From Last Season

America's Got Talent - Light Balance Kids

NBC’s America’s Got Talent was the night’s only broadcast to beat ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise finale. AGT’s  final live performance episode of the season nabed a 1.6 in the key 18-49 demo and 9.73 million viewers. That’s up from the 1.4 and 9.48 million viewers that it garnered last week, and also marks a 4-week high in the key demo for the series.

That number, however, is down from last season’s performance final which earned a 2,3 rating in the key demo and almost 13 million viewers.
