Last night’s numbers were generally slightly up from last Tuesday, but still minimal.

Daily Comparison 2013 Tue Jul 9

NBC:  AMERICA’S GOT TALENT rose 0.1 to 2.5, enough to win the night.  Similarly, a new episode of OFF THEIR ROCKERS was up 0.1 to 1.0–although that was just slightly above the 0.9 a rerun got in the preceding half-hour.

ABC:  Continuing the trend, EXTREME WEIGHT LOSS crept up 0.1 to 1.1.

FOX:  SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE held even at 1.5.

CBS:  Reruns, highlighted by a 1.1 for NCIS.

CW:  Reruns at 0.2/0.1.

Tonight NBC introduces another new scripted series, the summer-themed CAMP.  The night’s event, though, is on FX, where the network launches its latest dark mystery THE BRIDGE with its 90-minute pilot.  Also, for masochists, ABC airs the final episode of FAMILY TOOLS.
