After hitting a season low for its Tuesday installment last week, “America’s Got Talent” bounced back some with the start of its semifinal round, leading NBC to a win for the night.

NBC scored 9.2 million viewers and a 5.5 rating/9 share in households in primetime, beating out CBS’ 8.4 million viewers and 5.6/9. ABC (4.6 million, 2.8/5) was a ways back in third. FOX (2.45 million, 1.5/2) was off its usual pace with a night of reruns, and The CW (655,000, 0.5/1) trailed.

NBC was the only network to finish above a 2.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic, averaging 2.4 for the night. ABC and CBS tied for second at 1.5. FOX managed only a 0.8, but that was good enough for fourth, ahead of The CW’s 0.3.
