“America’s Got Talent” dropped to a season low TV rating once again, as ABC aired a tribute to Regis Philbin in the same time slot.
The NBC singing show scored a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49, roughly a 10% dip from the previous episode from two weeks ago. A total of 6.1 million viewers watched “AGT,” which was the largest audience on the night, but also represents a 1.5 million viewer loss from the previous edition. There was better news for NBC later on, however, as “World of Dance” leapt up 40% week-to-week to a 0.7 rating and 3.7 million total viewers.
