The ratings may be down for all those TV talent contests, but they’re a long way from fading away. Last week two editions of NBC’s America’s Got Talent made Nielsen’s top-ten list. Tuesday’s installment was the only show to attract more than 10 million viewers; it drew 11.4 million. A Sunday edition of the NBC show was watched by 8.1 million viewers. The evening newscasts remained in the summer doldrums. NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams counted 8 million viewers, one million ahead of ABC World News with Diane Sawyer.. The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley trailed with 6 million viewers. For the week, CBS led with an average 3.5 household rating and a 9 share. NBC came in second with a 3.0/8. ABC was third with a 2.5/7. Fox trailed with a 2.4/6.
