    I'm not a math expert but isn't 12.13 million more than 10.02 million? Did you mix up the dates?

    i think you have the total viewer numbers reversed. ratings are down on all the talent shows though, a 16% drop isn't bad at all.

    I'm guessing each percentage point is a million viewers? Well, If that's the case.....John Hein got it right when he called that Hamptons would effect Sixteen million viewers, He just got it in the wrong direction........

    so here is a graph of the ratings:

    couple of notes for any of the excuses that are commonly used:

    1) Didn't know what night it was on.... NBC 1st aired a non-paired episode of AGT in early September (believe it was NFL preseason game). It aired the show Mon/Tues in the beginning of the season (vs. Tues/Weds slot in all of 2011), but was it really that difficult to find? Are Tues/Weds repeats that harder to beat than Mon/Tues ones?

    2) Olympics... AGT had faltered in the ratings from the start... it doesn't seem like the Olympics impacted it that much.
