‘AGT All-Stars’s NBC Debut Reportedly Brought in 9.1 Million Viewers
It seems like the future is bright for the first season of America’s Got Talent‘s newest spin off, AGT All-Stars. The show has reportedly racked in 9.1 million viewers since it’s debut on January 2. Although fans are far from giving this new show the Golden Buzzer, they have made this series very successful right out of the gate.
AGT All-Stars Debut Brings in 9.1 Million Viewers
Now that the first season of AGT All-Stars‘s is in full swing, reports have come out about the show’s premiere success. According to Deadline, the premiere brought in 9.1 million total viewers, since the show’s debut. Apparently, the episode reached a 1.2 rating among the 18-49 demographic. For those who may not know, this means that of the people watching the show at a given time 1.2% of the viewers are in the show’s target demographic (18-49).
On the day of the premiere, the show brought in nearly 5.3 million viewers with a 0.59 demographic rating for the episode and same day. According to the show’s network, 15 million viewers have seen “at least six minutes of the episodes.” The 15 million viewers account for the network’s two telecasts, as well as delayed viewing and digital.
These numbers are pretty great, considering AGT‘s premiere in May 2022 brought in 6.3 million viewers with a 0.76 demographic rating. Reportedly, the show’s season 17 brought in around 6.2 million live and same day views with a 0.68 demographic rating. That being said, although AGT All-Stars didn’t hit their target demographic as well as the original series, it will come with time. If anything, AGT All-Stars‘s increased viewership may create new fans.
How Does This Compare to AGT: The Champions?
As many know, AGT All-Stars is more or less a new version of the short-lived series. The first season of AGT: The Champions reportedly earned 9.97 million viewers with a rating of 1.8 in the same demographic. Viewership stayed somewhat consistent throughout the season, with the highest being 10.57 million (finale) and the lowest being 9.7 million.
AGT: The Champions season two did not have the same demographics as the first. Although this could purely be due to the fact that this season aired in early 2020, it scored much lower viewership wise. The most-viewed episode of season two brought in 8.06 million, while the lowest-viewed episode only brought in 7.05 million.
I think AGT All-Stars has the benefit of being a brand new show on it’s side, so I predict the season will end up similar to AGT: The Champions season one. What do you think about the new series? Have you seen both of the episodes? Let us know in the comments down below.
