While the networks struggle to attract viewers during the summer months, America’s Got Talent has been a solid performer for NBC. Will the ratings get better this year or will they drop? Cancelled or renewed for an 11th season? Stay tuned.
Hosted by Nick Cannon, America’s Got Talent is a nationwide talent show that features a variety of single and group performers. The winner takes home a cash prize and a chance to headline a Las Vegas show. Returning as judges are Melanie Brown, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel, and Howard Stern. For at least part of the season, the series airs twice a week — on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
