Last season, America’s Got Talent rose significantly in the ratings. Back in February though, Nick Cannon — who hosted the past eight cycles– publicly parted ways with the series. With Tyra Banks now taking the reins, will the audience dwindle, or increase? Will America’s Got Talent be cancelled or renewed for season 13? Stay tuned.
A nationwide talent competition, America’s Got Talent features various individual and group performances. The winning act wins a cash prize and the chance to headline in the America’s Got Talent Live show in Las Vegas. Returning as judges are Howie Mandel, Simon Cowell, Melanie Brown, and Heidi Klum. Guest judges in season 12 include Chris Hardwick, DJ Khaled, Laverne Cox, and Seal. The NBC series typically airs on Tuesdays (and also on Wednesdays, during the live performances and results episodes). **Update below.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in 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.
9/20 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.

For comparisons: The Tuesday edition of season 11 averaged a 2.48 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 11.707 million total viewers, an increase over season 10, by 5.47% and 9.41%, respectively.
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.

**2/21 update: NBC has renewed America’s Got Talent for season 13. Details here.
Tyra banks is a joke, she about as funny as Hogans goat
I think, to keep ratings up, you need to get 4 new judges. It would be absolutely terrific if you can get Nick back to host. He was super great, and added a lot to the show. I get so turned off by Mel B’s phony drama, and Simon’s T-shirt wardrobe.
No longer a family show, gotta go, no desire
I don’t feel Mel B should be airing out her dislike for Simon on the air. She’s a little over whelming & needs to get over herself I do like Tyra Banks as as hostess
I have been an avid America’s Got Talent viewer since its inception. This season, however, I have moved on. What was supposed to be a “family friendly” show has sadly gone the way of so many others that began as safe and unoffensive, and became something many parents wouldn’t want their children to watch. I have especially been turned off by Mel B’s attire (why is showing her underclothes acceptable?) and some comments made in regard to the contestant who emulates Donald Trump. So inappropriate. Not that it matters that I no longer watch AGT (I really enjoyed all the… Read more »
I feel exactly how you feel and have been watching since the beginning but I moved on to. Nick made that show and since he isn’t hosting any more, I stopped watching plus I couldn’t stand the way Mel B’s attire was too. It gives a bad image for our young people.
I love her selections and they are no more revealing than the things young people are wearing on the streets, to school and wherever.
