Primetime Cable Ratings: August 25, 2015

TNT topped the Tuesday night ratings, but it was not by its newest series, PUBLIC MORALS.

Final Broadcast Ratings: August 25, 2015

AMERICA'S GOT TALENT continues to be America's top show this summer, helping NBC sweep the Tuesday night ratings, again. The 10th year talent showcase drew another 10.3 million viewers tot he network, from 8 to 10 p.m., nearly two million more viewers than #2 NCIS. AGT was down 600,000 viewers and an average of one tenth of a ratings point, in each of the three demo categories, over last week's numbers. HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT was down two tenths in each demo.

Ratings Review: HUMANS (Season One)

HUMANS, the new AMC series, via the UK, started off with relatively good numbers, approaching two million viewers for the premiere. But after the sampling, the numbers fell by a third and stayed there for most of the first season's run. It may have been a mistake for AMC to renew the series for a second season, but, historically, the network has been patient with most of its series, that start slow in the ratings.
