Another Tuesday win for America’s Got Talent.

Daily Comp 3way 2014 Tue Aug 12

ABC:  A quick 20/20 special about Robin Williams outrated the usual Celebrity Wife Swap in the 10PM hour with 1.7, and gave ABC 2d place in that slot. At 8PM, EXTREME WEIGHT LOSS was down 0.1 to 1.2.

NBC:  FOOD FIGHTERS was down 0.1 to 1.1, and then AMERICA’S GOT TALENT was steady at its season low 2.0.

CBS:  Reruns, led by NCIS at 1.0.

FOX:  Reruns, topped by FAMILY GUY at 0.7.

CW:  Reruns at 0.2/0.3.

The broadcast networks air their regular schedules tonight.  On cable, TNT premieres its new LEGENDS, and follows it with the season premiere of FRANKLIN & BASH.  FXX presents the series finale of its quirky existential comedy WILFRED.
