America’s Got Talent, WOD Premiere Ratings Down But Still Dominant

America’s Got Talent premiere ratings are 3/10 off from last season–down from 2.7 to 2.4 in the key 18-49 demo. World of Dance premiere is down more than half a point–2.4 to 1.2. NBC airing WOD in both the summer and winner will be a risky proposition. I think both AGT and WOD function best as summer entertainment. Why mess with a good thing?

The season premiere of “America’s Got Talent” brought in strong ratings Tuesday — just not quite as strong as last year’s debut.

The NBC show scored a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49, off from 2.7 for its 2017 premiere. It was still far and away Tuesday’s No. 1 show in all measures. “World of Dance” opened to a 1.8, down from 2.4 for its series premiere last year but in line with its Season 1 average.
