Even though it airs twice a week, during the live shows and results episodes, the America’s Got Talent TV show has continued to be a big draw for NBC. Will the nationwide talent competition series continue to perform well for the Peacock Network? Cancelled or renewed for season 13? Stay tuned.
Now hosted by supermodel Tyra Banks, America’s Got Talent showcases various individual and group performances. The winning act receives 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 stage of the competition).
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.
9/21 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.

For comparisons: The Wednesday edition of season 11 averaged a 2.15 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.966 million total viewers, an increase over season 10, by a stunning 24.28% and 20.90%, 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.
What do you think? Are you still watching the America’s Got Talent TV series? Should NBC cancel or renew it for a 13th season?
