This talent competition continues to be NBC‘s top rated summer series and it’s already been renewed for a 10th season. Will the ratings continue to be strong enough to justify airing twice a week? 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. Episodes also air on Tuesdays.
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.
Final season averages for Wednesdays: 2.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 10.37 million total viewers.

These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
