A rebroadcast of "America's Got Talent" (0.9/3 in 18-49 3.4 million viewers overall from 10:01-11 p.m. ET) tied for #1 among ABC, CBS and NBC in the time period in adults, men and women 18-34.

Friday: NBC finished #1 among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox Friday night in adults 18-49, adults 25-54 and total viewers with the top two shows of the night, "Dateline NBC" (1.3/5 in 18-49, 6.1 million viewers overall from 8-10 p.m. ET) and "Ann Curry Reports: A Face in the Crowd" (1.3/5 in 18-49, 6.0 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m.). "Dateline" reported its top Friday 18-49 rating since March 1 and biggest Friday audience since June 7.
