    Ratings Breakdown:
    “America’s Got Talent” led NBC to more midweek overnight victory, with the 9-10 p.m. telecast topping the night at a 6.5 rating/11 share in households. Comparably, this was right on par with the year-ago evening. Next on NBC was recent drama entry “Taxi Brooklyn,” which dipped to a 3.0/ 5 at 10 p.m. and finished second behind the time period debut of “Extant” on CBS (4.1/ 7). While “Extant” did build by 32 percent from a repeat of lead-in “Criminal Minds” (#2: 3.1/ 5 at 9 p.m.), it slipped by five percent from the 4.3/ 7 one week earlier in the Wednesday 9 p.m. hour. Needless to say, “Extant” is not the summer hit CBS was hoping for. And that observation is based on the consideration of all data streams.

    Earlier in the evening on NBC was a repeat of “America’s Got Talent” at a second-place 4.1/ 7 from 8-9 p.m., which trailed “Big Brother” on CBS (#1: 4.2/ 8) by one-tenth of a rating point (or two percent). Comparably, “Big Brother” dropped by seven percent from the 4.5/ 8 one year earlier, but the adult demo rating is expected to remain in the vicinity of a 2.

    In series-premiere news, “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” was adequately sampled on The CW with a 1.3/ 2 in the overnights from 8-9 p.m. Comparably, this increased from an encore of “Arrow” one week earlier (0.7/ 1 on July 23) and on the year-ago evening (0.8/ 2 on 7/31/13) by 86 percent and 62 percent, respectively. Next on The CW was a repeat of drama “The 100” at a 0.4/ 1 (#5) at 9 p.m.
