Ratings For America’s Got Talent and The Voice Soar. So You Think You Can Dance Does A Plié.

Well, the headline says it all. NBC’s decision to air back-to-back episodes of America’s Got Talent and The Voice was a stroke of genius.

Both shows benefited from the piggyback plan, in particular, The Voice, which was dipping slightly in the ratings over the last couple of weeks.

The Hollywood Reporter had this to say: “(Tuesday) night’s two-hour America’s Got Talent premiere improved 17 percent in the adults 18-48 demographic, drawing a 4.2 rating, and saw a 21 percent boost in total viewers, averaging 15 million viewers. The second hour of Talent was the most-watched hour (16.6 million) on Tuesday night.”

Even more: “Talent boosted The Voice at 10 p.m., which as of late had been dipping in the ratings. In fact, Voice drew its highest tune-in for an episode, luring in 14.4 million for the last of the battle rounds. Though the episode wasn’t the highest-rated (that belongs to the series debut, which garnered a 5.1), it snagged a 4.9.”

However, the news was slightly more dismal for Fox‘s So You Think You Can Dance but appears to be a temporary situation due to the Stanley Cup Finals that aired on NBC last evening.

The Hollywood Reporter had this to say: “Fox’s summer dance show So You Think You Can Dance slipped a bit in the ratings for its second episode of the season.

Though SYTYCD easily pushed Fox for the Wednesday victory in total viewers and the adults 18-49 demographic, the competition series averaged 8.4 million viewers and a 3.0 rating — down from the season premiere.”

All in all it looks like entertainment reality shows are alive and well and living in our lives? Are you enjoying the songfest and dancefest.

  1. MCL, it is so easy to get addicted to watching these shows. I am a devoted fan of SYTYCD and have gone to last year’s concert (excellent)! I have taped most of the shows. For the most part, the judges are good, although Nigel can get “wild” at times.

    I think I watched 15 minutes of AGT this year. I think I will wait until they get to the TOP 10. I don’t like the comedy/terrible acts.

    Now, I have watched all of The Voice thus far, but I want to see how they will handle the voting before I make up my mind about the shows. There were too many really good singers eliminated. In a few weeks, I’ll have a more complete opinion.

    My guilty pleasure has been Randy Jackson’s America’s Best Dance Crew. There Finale is this week. What is so great about this show are the judges. They explain things and don’t attack the teams of dancers.

    I will also catch a bit of the repeat Glee episodes. LOL! I actually do watch Political Shows on cable television. However, entertainment show are a perfect vehicle for escape!!

    I know Kara has a show on now, and Ryan says he’s going to produce a Reality Show – then there is Simon’s X-Factor. At some point, the public will rebel with the over-load. It is up to Nigel and Ken to make AMERICAN IDOL a better show with some geniune improvements next year!

  2. Roseanne, if we wanted your personal (professional) opinion on something, what is the best way to ask for a private opinion? Thanks so much!
