[via press release from NBC]

Wednesday Primetime Results:

NBC is #1 Wednesday night among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in 18-49 and total viewers with the #1 show of the night on those nets, "America's Got Talent."

· From 9-10:01 p.m. ET, "America's Got Talent" (2.8/9 in 18-49, 11.0 million viewers overall) delivered the #1 rating of the night on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-49, total viewers and other key measures on an evening that included "MasterChef," "Big Brother" and other originals. "Talent" is currently up a tenth of a point versus last week's 2.7 in these preliminary fast-affiliate ratings and is matching last week's 2.8 in official nationals. In total viewers, "Talent" is up 3% versus last week's official nationals (11.002 million vs. 10.707 million). From its first half-hour to its second, "Talent" grew by 15% in adults 18-49 (to a 3.0 rating from a 2.6).

· Versus the same night last year, "Talent" is up 40% in 18-49 rating (to a 2.8 from a 2.0) and up 45% in total viewers (11.002 million vs. 7.610 million).

· The 2.8 rating in 18-49 matches "Talent's" highest for any night of the week since Monday, June 18 and the 11.0 million is "Talent's" biggest overall audience since that same date. The 2.8 for rating also matches last week's episode as the best rating for any Wednesday telecast on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox since the May sweep and is tied with last week's telecast as NBC's highest rating in the time period since November 7 (special Wednesday "Voice"). The 11.002 million is best for any Wednesday telecast on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox since the May sweep and NBC's best in the slot since September 12, 2012 ("Talent" finale, 11.045 million).

· At 10:01 p.m. ET, "Camp" (1.4/4 in adults 18-49, 4.5 million viewers overall) is currently running within a tenth of a rating point of last week's premiere 1.5, which was the #2 debut rating for a new scripted series among eight introduced so far this summer by ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.

· Last night's "Camp" ranked #1 among ABC, CBS and NBC in adults 18-49, adults 18-34 and other key categories - versus ABC's original "The Lookout" and CBS's encore "CSI." In its first two weeks, "Camp" has earned NBC's top two 18-49 and total-viewer results in the slot, excluding Stanley Cup Hockey coverage, since May 22.

· From 8-9 p.m. ET, an special recap edition of "America's Got Talent" (1.8/7 in 18-49, 7.7 million viewers overall) jumped 38% above last week's encore in the time period in 18-49 rating (to a 1.8 from a 1.5). Excluding Stanley Cup Hockey, this is NBC's top rating in the slot since a May 8 telecast of "The Voice."

In Late-Night Metered Markets Wednesday night:

· In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.4/6; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.4/6; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 1.6/4 with an encore.

· In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 0.8/4; "Late Show," 0.5/2; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.6/3 with an encore.

· From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.0/3 in metered-market households and a 0.3/2 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.

· From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.3/4 in metered-market households) beat CBS's "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.1/4). In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/3 in 18-49) topped "Late Late Show" (0.3/2).

· At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.7/3 in metered-market households with an encore and a 0.3/2 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.
