Better Late Than Never [NBC]

Leading out of “America’s Got Talent,” NBC’s “Better Late Than Never” got off to a solid start.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, Tuesday’s premiere drew a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating and 7.350 million total viewers.

Decent at face, the numbers are particularly strong from a competitive standpoint. “Better Late Than Never” easily won its timeslot in adults 18-49 and total viewership.

It was, moreover, the entire night’s #2 program in both columns. Only the aforementioned “America’s Got Talent” (2.4, 11.07 million viewers) drew a larger audience.
