What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the NBC television network, America’s Got Talent is a talent competition that features an impressive array of singers, dancers, comedians, contortionists, impressionists, magicians, ventriloquists, and hopeful stars. The winning act receives a $1 million prize and the chance to headline in the America’s Got Talent Live show in Las Vegas. In season 16, Terry Crews returns as host, and Howie Mandel, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, and Sofía Vergara are back at the judge’s table. This season promises some of the wildest acts to ever grace the AGT stage after an unprecedented number of submissions poured in from across the country.
Season 16 Ratings
The 16th season of America’s Got Talent averaged a 0.81 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.60 million viewers. Compared to season 15, that’s down by 21% in the demo and down by 9% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled. Find out how America’s Got Talent stacks up against other NBC TV shows.
Will NBC cancel or renew America’s Got Talent for season 17? This series is a staple of the NBC summer schedule and has remained one of the network’s highest-rated shows. I have no doubt that it will be renewed. However, it’s worth noting that the show will be airing only one night a week this time around — the first time this has happened since 2007. Perhaps the end is closer than we imagine. I’ll update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free alerts on America’s Got Talent cancellation or renewal news.
