The return of NBC’s America’s Got Talent for the summer season drew the highest ratings of the night on Tuesday — 11.91 million viewers and a 3.0 rating and a 9 share among viewers 18-49. The talent contest peaked in the second hour with an average of 12.43 million. While the number of total viewers was up 6 percent from a year ago, ratings for the key demo were down about 3 percent. However, several ratings analysts noted that the numbers were the strongest since May of 2011. The solid ratings also helped boost those for NBC’s The Night Shift, which followed at 10:00 pm. The premiere of the new NBC drama averaged 7.78 million viewers and a 1.6/5 rating, the second highest of the night.
