Another dull summer Tuesday…

Daily Comparison 2013 Tue Jul 30 3 way

NBC:  The Peacock took the night thanks to AMERICA’S GOT TALENT and its 2.7, although the show was down a tick from last week.  Both weeks came off a 1.0 rerun of HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT.

FOX:  SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE was even at 1.4.

ABC:  EXTREME WEIGHT LOSS held at 1.1, and the network’s 10PM returned (after last week’s royal baby special) to its 0.6 level with a BODY OF PROOF rerun.

CW:  The debut of CAPTURE had an 0.4, which isn’t much, but bettered the 0.3 from last week’s Perfect Score.   WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY slipped to 0.8/0.9 for two new episodes after 1.0 for the single fresh episode last week.

CBS:  Reruns, led by 1.1 for NCIS.

NBC is all-new tonight, and the other networks (except CW) each have a single new hour of programming.
