agt 8211 ratings 320 TV ratings: 'America's Got Talent' steady, 'Hell's Kitchen' helps FOX capture Tuesday demo winFast National ratings for Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2011

“America’s Got Talent” was on par Tuesday with its numbers from last week — up a little in viewers, down slightly among adults 18-49 — and led NBC to an overall ratings win for the night. FOX, however, snagged a narrow 18-49 win with its Gordon Ramsay two-fer.

NBC delivered 9.3 million viewers and a 5.4 rating/9 share among households in primetime. CBS (7.4 million, 4.9/8) came in second, finishing comfortably ahead of FOX’s 6 million viewers and 3.5/6. ABC (5.1 million, 3.0/5) was fourth, with new series “Take the Money and Run” scoring only middling numbers. The CW was well off the pace with 560,000 viewers and a 0.4/1.

FOX led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 2.5 rating, edging NBC’s 2.4. ABC’s 1.6 was good for third, followed by CBS, 1.3, and The CW, 0.2.
