Rnc Can't Crack Top 20 In Ratings

So far as the individual broadcast networks were concerned, their expensive coverage of the Republican National Convention was pretty much a bust. No network managed to place a single night of convention coverage in the top 20. That list was dominated primarily by reruns, reality shows, and ABC's Saturday Night Football. Once again, NBC's America's Got Talent topped the list, with Tuesday-night's performance episode ranking No. 1 for the week with 9.9 million viewers, according to Nielsen Research. AGT 's results telecast came in at No. 3 with 8.3 million viewers, edged out by a rerun of NCIS , which drew 8.4 million. The nightly newscasts failed to get a big bump in the ratings from the convention or from Tropical Storm Isaac. NBC led with an average of 7.9 million viewers for the week, up just 1.3 percent from the previous week. ABC came in second with 7.2 million viewers, up just 1.4 percent. CBS was the most improved with an average of 6 million viewers, up 10.8 percent. For the week, all of the ratings numbers looked puny, with CBS coming out on top with average 3.3 household rating and a 6 share. NBC placed second with a 2.8/5, followed closely by ABC with a 2.6/4. Fox trailed with a 2.1/4.

The top ten shows of the week according to Nielsen Research 1. America's Got Talent (Tuesday), NBC, 5.9/9; 2. NCIS , CBS, 5.5/9; 3. America's Got Talent (Wednesday), NBC, 5.0/8; 4.
