The season finale of NBC’s America’s Got Talent averaged 15.5 million viewers over two hours, gaining four million from start to finish. “Thank you, reality TV finale lead-in!” shouted the third episode of NBC’s The Jay Leno Show, which improved on its Tuesday night audience by over 2 million viewers. Fox’s Glee and So You Think You Can Dance each lost less than a million viewers from last Wednesday’s premieres; both should easily win their time slots hour in terms of younger viewers moving forward in a post-Talent world. Not enough people cared about The CW’s series debut of The Beautiful Life; it turns out you can just look at Mischa Barton on the Internet instead, plus that way you don’t have to miss Glee.
