Two premieres last night (Jan 7): NBC’s America’s Got Talent: The Champions (1.8) outpaced ABC’s The Bachelor (1.5) by 3/10ths of a rating point in the 18-49 demo, giving NBC a win for the night.

While last Wednesday’s The Masked Singer from FOX nabbed a 2.9 preliminary rating in the 18-49 demo, eventually rising to 3.o in the final, America’s Got Talent: The Champions earned more viewers (9.4 million average for Masked).
